Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So 3 is decreased by 1: 31. The quotient of a number = division. You can eliminate A, because it has no division. You can also eliminate B because 31 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!
