Physics

If $$P, Q, R$$ are physical quantities, having different dimensions, which of the following combinations can never be a meaningful quantity?


ANSWER

$$(P-Q)/R$$


SOLUTION
As per the principle of homogeneity of dimension, addition subtraction or equality between two quantities of different dimensions are not possible while division and multiplication are possible. 
Hence option A is correct.
