2 tablespoons is 1 fluid ounce.  Which means 1 tablespoon is .5 fluid ounce which makes C.) the correct answer.  3-2 = 1 tablespoon.  The 2 tablespoons taken away were turned into one fluid ounce.  The last tablespoon is only half of what would make 1 fluid ounce and since .5 is the same as 50% that means that 1.5 fluid ounces is the same as 3 tablespoons.


The correct answer is C.
