0.0000000004304 F

This can be written in scientific form as folllows.

4.304 x 10^(-10) F.

Now let us consider about the metric system prefixes.

Some common ones are,

10^6 - M - Mega

10^3 - k - kilo

10^(-3) - m - mili

10^(-6) - micro

10^(-9) - n - nano

10^(-12) - p - pico

 

The above number can be written as,

4.304 x 10^(-10) F = 430.4 x 10^(-12) F

Now this is in the pico range. Therefore this can be written as 430.4 pF.

The answer is 430.4 pF or choice (b)
