A. 2

B. 4

C. $${\text{2 - 2 lo}}{{\text{g}}_{10}}^2$$

D. $${\text{4 - 4 lo}}{{\text{g}}_{10}}^2$$

Answer: Option A

Solution(By Examveda Team)

$$\eqalign{ & 2{\log _{10}}5 + {\log _{10}}8 - \frac{1}{2}{\log _{10}}4 \cr & = \log 10\left( {{5^2}} \right) + {\log _{10}}8 - {\log _{10}}\left( {{4^{\frac{1}{2}}}} \right) \cr & = {\log _{10}}25 + {\log _{10}}8 - {\log _{10}}2 \cr & = {\log _{10}}\left( {\frac{{25 \times 8}}{2}} \right) \cr & = {\log _{10}}100 \cr & = 2 \cr} $$
