  1. To gain weight, one must use FEWER calories a day than one takes in.

    Which ones do that?

    Once you've decided that, then check to see which one uses up the fewest calories compared to how much he/she takes in. Subtraction and then comparison are required.

  2. Madeline 300 left
    Fernando 50 left
    Dahlia 100 left
    Wallace 500 left

    So answer B Fernando?
