Answer:

Depends..

Explanation:

If you are a physicist, or this question pertains to a physics problem, then the answer is #color(magenta)"kg"#. The SI unit is also #"kg"# so there's that.

If you are a chemist, then the answer is #color(red)"g"#. Since chemists work with small numbers when working with samples and other sorts of chemicals, a #"kg"# is not really practical, to be honest.

I am sure there is some reason behind why #"kg"# is used as the SI unit despite #"g"# showing up on every chemistry problem ever written in a chemistry textbook.
