Answer:

#1# centimeter has #10,000,000# i.e. #10# million nanometers.

Explanation:

Standard unit in this system is #1# meter.

There are a billion i.e. #1,000,000,000# nano units in a standard unit and hence #1,000,000,000# nanometers in one meter.

As there are #100# centimeters in each meter,

#1# centimeter has #(1,000,000,000)/100=10,000,000# i.e. #10# million nanometers.
