B. $$\frac{1}{4}kg$$
C. $$\frac {1}{2}kg$$
D. $$\frac {3}{28}kg$$

B

## Solution

$$1\frac {3}{4}\ kg$$ can be written as $$\frac{4\times 1+3}{4}=\frac{7}{4}\ kg$$
Since, $$\frac{7}{4}\ kg$$ is to divided equally among seven friends.
So, share of each friend $$=\frac{\frac{7}{4}}{7}\ kg$$
$$=\frac{7}{4\times 7}$$
$$=\frac{1}{4}\ kg$$
So,  each friend receives $$\frac{1}{4}\ kg$$.
Hence, option (B) is correct
