    Answer: (3) 75

    Explanation:-
    TA plate on square base made of brass is of length A x cm and 1 mm.
    Then, the length = X cm,  wide = X cm and width = 1 mm = 0.1 cm
    1 cubic cm of brass weight = 8.4 gram
    Therefore, 4725 gram = 4725/8.4 cubic cm
      = 562.5 cubic cm
    Then, the volume of a plate = 562.5 cubic cm X x X x 0.1
     Square of X = 562.5/0.1
     Square of X = 5625
    Square root on both side,
    X = 75 cm

    Then, the value of X is 75 cm. 

    Hence, the answer is (3) 75 cm.
