Here is another question.


What is 1 light year approximately?

A) 1 x 10 ^10 secs
B) 1 x 10 ^10 meters
C) 1 x 10 ^15 secs
D) 1 x 10 ^ 15 meters


(HINT: Don't forget on the MCAT you must know how to
approximate exponents)

The time is 3.2e7 not 3.2e8, which when multiplied by the speed of light (3e8) is 9e15 = ~1e16, which is not one of the answer choices. Did I do a calculation wrong or is the answer choice supposed to be 1e16?
