Hint:Here, quantity of diesel is given which a generator consumes in 1 hour and quantity of diesel which the generator requires for 24 hours can simply be obtained by multiplication & that product will be the answer to this problem.
Basically, formula applied here is $-{\text{ }}Diesel{\text{ }}consumed{\text{ }}per{\text{ }}hour{\text{ }} \times {\text{ }}No.{\text{ }}of{\text{ }}hours{\text{ }}in{\text{ }}a{\text{ }}day{\text{ }}.$

Given, generator consumes diesel per hour $= 2.875Litres$
$Total{\text{ }}Diesel{\text{ }}Consumed = {\text{ }}Diesel{\text{ }}consumed{\text{ }}per{\text{ }}hour{\text{ }} \times {\text{ }}No.{\text{ }}of{\text{ }}hours{\text{ }}in{\text{ }}a{\text{ }}day{\text{ }}.$
= $24 \times 2.875 = 69L$
