A sample of $500 \mathrm{~g}$ dry sand, when poured into a 2 litre capacity cylinder which is partially filled with water, displaces $188 \mathrm{~cm}^{3}$ of water. The density of water is $1 \mathrm{~g} / \mathrm{cm}^{3}$. The specific gravity of the sand is

(A) 2.72

(B) 2.66

(C) 2.55

(D) 2.52
