By using changes of units, we will see that the correct option is d.

Which onion is heavier?

We know that the yellow onion weighs 0.59 lb

The red onion weighs 208.65 grams.

The thing we need to do, is write the first mass in grams, then we use:

1 lb = 453.59g

Then we can rewrite:

0.59 lb = 0.59* 453.59g = 267.62g

Then we can see that the red onion is heavier.

The difference in mass is:

m = 267.62g - 208.65g = 58.97g

Now we want to rewrite this in ounces, remember that:

1g = 0.035oz

Then:

58.97g = 58.97*0.035oz = 2.064 oz

Then the correct option must be d.
