Answer: (4) 225

Explanation:-
The length of the rectangular field = 30 m
The breadth of the rectangular field = 15 m

Then, the area of the rectangular field = 30 x 15 = 450 m2

The length of tile = 2 m
The breadth of a tile = 1m

The, area covered by a tile = 2 x 1 = 2 m2

Then, the number of tiles to complete the field = 450/2
= 225 tiles

Hence, the answer is (4) 225.
