Answer: (d) – – / =

Solution:-
Taken option (a),
Put the value of signs in 16*2*24*3*6
Then, 16 + 2 = 24 – 3/6
18 = 24 – 1/2
18 = 47/2
18 does not equal to 47/2, so this option is not correct.

Taken option (b),
Put the value of signs in 16*2*24*3*6.
Then, 16 x 2 – 24 + 3 = 6
32 – 24 + 3 = 6
8 + 3 = 6
11 = 6
11 does not equal to 6. So, this option is not also correct.

Taken option (c),
Put the value of signs in 16*2*24*3*6
Then, 16 + 2/24 = 3/2
16 + 1/12 = 3/2
Both side are equal, so this option is not also correct.

Taken option (d),
16 – 2 – 24/3 = 6
14 – 8 = 6
6 = 6

This option is correct.

Hence, the correct answer is option (d) – – / =.
