Dear Student

Option (c) is correct here
From the question it is given that,
One packet of biscuits requires 21⁄2 cups of flour = 5/2

One packet of biscuits requires cups of sugar. = 5/3 Total ingredients for one packet of biscuits = (5/2) + (5/3)

= (15 + 10)/6

= 25/6
Then, total quantity of both ingredients used in 10 such packets of biscuits = 10 × (25/6)

= 5 × (25/3)
= 125/3

Thanks
