    It says that ,

    She divides circumference by diameter

    And we know the formulas for circumference and diameter

    Circumference =  2\pi r

    And Diameter =  2 r

    And now lets divide circumference by diameter

    Circumference/ diameter =  \frac{2\pi r}{2r}   =  \pi

    It simplifies to  \pi

    So every time on dividing circumference by diameter , she will get  \pi

    And value of  \pi  is 3.14 .

    So everytime she will get 3.14

    So option C is the correct answer.
