A. 85600

B. 85700

C. 85000

D. 86000

Answer :

Starting from the right for the number 85642,

Place value of 2 is ones

Place value of 4 is tens

Place value of 6 is hundreds

Place value of 5 is thousands

Place value of 8 is ten thousands

Since, we need to round off to nearest thousands, all digits following 5 should be replaced by 0 and as the digit succeeding 5 is 6(greater than 5), therefore digit at ten thousand's place should be increment by 1,

∴ Answer = 86000
