    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) – – / =.
