Thanks for asking question on GMAT section,

Your question was – **How will you represent the term 140 with the help of roman numbers?**

Your correct answer is- d

**Now read this explanation for more clarifications:**

According to the rules used for writing the roman numbers,

Letter I represents a value of 1

Letter V represents a value of 5

Letter X represents a value of 10

Letter L represents a value of 50

Letter C represents a value of 100

Letter D represents a value of 500

Letter M represents a value of 1000

∴ 140 can be written as 100 + 40

For 100 we can use the symbol C.

But, 40 cannot be written as XXXX, because we cannot the same symbol more than 3

times consecutively.

∴ We can write 40 as XL

Hence, we can write 140 as CXL in terms of roman numbers.

Hence, the correct answer is option d.
