What Remains When the Roads Are Gone Riddle Answer
Answer: The answer to the what remains when the roads are gone riddle is ¾ which is the option C.
The total laps in the race is 50 and the driver has completed 12 ½ laps which means-
50 subtract 12 ½ equal to 37 ½ or 37.5
So, to calculate the fractional part of the race remains we will divide the remain laps by total laps that is-
37 ½ divide by 50 or 37.5 divide by 50 which will be equal to 0.74 or ¾.
Therefore, the correct answer is option C which is ¾.
