A= (3/5)*1000=600 B=2*300 =600 hence answer C

instead of (3/5)*1000=600 my friend what you can do is just multiply 2 on both numerator and denominator so its becomes easier to estimate the percentage hence easy to determine the weight. it would be 6/10 which is 60% so 600 grams. just make denominator either 10, 100 or as close to 100 as possible so you can take an approximation
