    im not sure since we havent gone over this in my physics class yet, but i would say that 20% efficiency means that 20% of the 1000 cals are used; giving us 200 cals in the answer at least

    W = P * time if T = 1 second , W = P ... that's it , find P(output) .. (using efficiency = Ouput/Input *100%) in Cal. per minute , that will be your answer

    if your options are truely: 200,873 then its most likely a typo and prolly meant to be read as 200,837
