Hi Ashok,

You really need to post the question that you are looking to be answered. We have absolutely no way of knowing what you want just by "plz".

Saying that, I'm familiar with the question.
First, the correct unit you need is rem not eam

From memory i guessing that your asked to give a answer using the rem unit, and the size is 53px.
To get this you need to do 53 ÷ 16 (16px being the base font size) giving you the answer 3.3125

So you'll use

.more {
  font-size: 3.3125rem;
}

Hope this helps, and remember to give as much information as you can when you ask a question.

Good luck
