Answer

a. about 33mL b. yes it is possible because all of the measurements are between 30mL and 40mL as indicated by the middle which goes up in increments of 10 c. it should be about 99mL because the least precise of the beakers goes up in increments of 10mL but can be read in increments of 1 mL thus giving three beakers of about 33mL

Work Step by Step

a. looking at the middle beaker which is the least precise will give you 33mL which is as precise as you can go because it is split into larger pieces than the others. b. when you look at all three of the beakers you notice that all are between 30mL and 40mL indicating that they all could have the same measure. c. 33mL is the most precise that you can be with those three beakers and since there are three of the 33\times3 equals 99mL
