Observe that the term (0.4 – 4.04) will yield a negative value. Hence the term will also be negative number slightly more than 1. Hence, 4 + (some negative number slightly more than 1) = a number slightly less than 4 = *x*

Hence, will yield a value slightly more than 1. Hence option ‘1’.

**(Ans: 1)**

*Estimated Time to arrive at the answer = 10 seconds.*
