Answer - D) 120

average printer = 40/4 = 10 char per second = 5 * (x) x = electric typewriter char per sec

x = 2 char per second from above equation

Since the question is asking speed of electric typewriter in char per minute, answer will be 120 char per minute

D

business printer----- 40/sec
average printer----- 40/4=10/sec
elctric type---------- 10/5=2/sec

so in 1 min =60*2/sec=120 characters

B=40p/s = 2400 p/m

B=4A
A=5E

A=600p/m
E=120p/m

D is the answer?
