A10^2
B10^4
C10^6
D10^7

Correct Option: 4  

Explanation:
10^7
The erg is a unit of energy and work equal to 10^−7 joules. It originated in the centimetre–gram–second (CGS) system of units. It has the symbol erg. The erg is not an SI unit. Its name is derived from ergon (’έργον) a Greek word meaning work or task.

An erg is the amount of work done by a force of one dyne exerted for a distance of one centimeter. In the CGS base units, it is equal to one gram centimeter-squared per second-squared (g·cm2/s2). It is thus equal to 10−7 joules or 100 nanojoules (nJ) in SI units. An erg is approximately the amount of work done (or energy consumed) by one common house fly performing one “push up,” the leg-bending dip that brings its mouth to the surface on which it stands and back up.
