A. 0.05%

B. 0.15%

C. 0.3%

D. 0.5%

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

0.05% Mild (low carbon) steel: approximately 0.05% to 0.25% carbon content with up to 0.4% manganese content (e.g. AISI 1018 steel). Less strong but cheap and easy to shape; surface hardness can be increased through carburizing
