    well you can right off the bat knock off C and D because the unites for acceleration are m/s2. do you know the formula for weight?

    the formula is W=M*G, so if you know W, and you know M, just plug in those values and solve for G, so your final formula will look like: G=W/M.

    the answer will be (E) , because g= 167/ 100
