1/4 of the amount

• B.

1/3 of the amount

• C.

1/2 of the amount

• D.

2/3 of the amount

C. 1/2 of the amount
Explanation
Anya spent \$32 out of the \$63 she received for her birthday. To find out what fraction of the amount she spent, we can divide the amount she spent (\$32) by the total amount she received (\$63). This calculation gives us 32/63, which can be simplified to 16/31. However, none of the given answer choices match this fraction exactly. The closest answer is "1/2 of the amount," which is equal to 31/63. Although it is not an exact match, it is the closest approximation and therefore the correct answer.
