I got the answer B. Because we want the answer in full inches, and the marks are made in sixteenths, I think it's easiest to find how many increments of 16 are possible in the number 111. 7 x 16 = 112 ; so the answer should be 7 - 1/16, which equals 6 15/16, or answer B.

If there's an even better way to solve this, let me know!

Here,

As each mark is \(\frac{1}{16}\)inch

Therefore the 111th mark will be = \(\frac{111}{16} = 6 {\frac{15}{16}}\) inches

Here, We need to find out the 111 th mark in inch. 7*16 (as, sixteenths of an inch) = 112. So the 111 th mark will be closer to 7. The correct answer is B).
