    Answer: (2) 4
    Explanation:-
    p = 82000 + 8-2000  and  q = 82000 – 8-2000
    p2 – q2 = (p + q) (p – q)
    = (82000 + 8-2000 + 82000 – 8-2000) (82000 + 8-2000 – 82000 + 8-2000)
    = (82000 + 82000) (8-2000 + 8-2000)
    =(2 x 82000) (2x 8-2000)
    = 4 x 82000/82000
    = 4
    Hence, the answer is (2) 4.
