I simply checked how broad all the intervals are and think it is E)
A) 0 to 3/20=3/20; B)3/20 to 1/5(4/20)=1/20 ; C)1/5 to 1/4=1/20; D)1/4 to 3/10=1/20 and E) 3/10 to 1/2=4/20

E is the correct. This question is about the continuous probability.

P = Desired range/Total range

Only E has the maximum range = 0.35
A number between the range given by E will most likely occur.

I think you meant: Only E has the maximum range = 0.20
