    option (b) 375 grams

    Explanation:

    Data provided in the question:

    Calories taken per day = 2500 kilocalories

    Desired increase in calories = 60%

    Amount of calories to be increased per day = 60% of 2500

    = 0.60 * 2500

    = 1500 kilocalories

    Now,

    1 gram of carbohydrates provides 4 Kilocalories

    therefore,

    For 1500 kilocalories, carbohydrates required will be

    = 1500 kilocalories : 4 kilocalories/gram

    thus,

    carbohydrates required = 375 grams
