Hint: The temperature is going to be measured with various units. Two among them are Celsius and Kelvin.
There is a relation between Celsius scale and Kelvin.
The relationship between Celsius and kelvin is as follows.
Temperature in Kelvin (K) = Temperature in $^{o}C$ + 273

- In the question they gave the temperature in Kelvin.
- Now we have to convert the given temperature to $^{o}C$ .
- The formula to convert the $^{o}C$ to Kelvin is as follows.
Temperature in $^{o}C$ = Temperature in Kelvin (K) – 273
Here $^{o}C$ = degree Celsius
K = Kelvin
(a) 268 K = Temperature in Kelvin
Temperature in $^{o}C$ = 268 K – 273 = -5 $^{o}C$
Therefore 268 K = -5 $^{o}C$

$C=\dfrac{\left({ }^{\circ} \mathrm{F}-32\right) \times 5}{9}$
$32^{0} \mathrm{F}=0^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$
