    Hi, What part do you not understand, or all of it?

    So 3 is decreased by 1: 3-1. The quotient of a number = division. You can eliminate A, because it has no division. You can also eliminate B because 3-1 is not in it. C is most likely correct, because it has all the components said. You can eliminate D, because it said "3 decreased by 1", not "1 decreased by 3". So yes, C is the answer!

    quotient is what you get when you divide 2 terms and to decrease means to get less so you subtract
