Explanatory Answer

Let’s assume that the number of members decided to make the Laddoos be ‘n’
and number of laddoos be ‘k’
So that, nk = 2400
On ladoo-making day, ten members are absent, thus each remaining member makes 12 laddoos more than earlier decided.
Hence, (n-10)(k+12) = 2400
If we solve the above two equations, we will get n = 50.
Therefore, the members actually make the laddoos is n - 10 = 40.
The correct answer would be 40

The answer is '40'

Choice E is the correct answer.
