The number 1000 lies between two consecutive perfect squares. Which one of these square integers is closest to 1000?

A. 29Â²
B. 30Â²
C. 31Â²
D. 32Â²
E. 33Â²
Let's examine some perfect squares that are close to 1000

30Â² = 900
31Â² = 961
32Â² = 1024

So, 1000 lies between 961 (aka 31Â²) and 1024 (aka 32Â²)
1000 is closer to 1024 (aka 32Â²) than to 961

Cheers,
Brent
