Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

dL is short for deciliter (0.1 liter) so 1 liter = 10dL

Hence 5L = 50 dL

The amount of cholesterol present in a normal adult = 200 x 50 = 10000mg 

Now  1000 mg = 1g

So 10000mg = 10,000 mg =10g

Answer: 10 grams

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
