C.

The average of those recipricals is ((1/91)+(1/100))/2=(1/95.5). There are 10 integers between 1/91 and 1/100 inclusive. So the sum of the integers is 10/95.5 or 100/955>100/1000=1/10. So III is less than D.

For II, 1/9=100/900>100/955. This means that I and II are greater than D.

D = 1/91 + 1/92 + ... + 1/100

hence, 10/91 > D > 10/100
or, 10/91 > D > 1/10

Since 1/9 (or 10/90) > 10/91, so D is less than both 1/9 and 1/8.

So, only 1/10 is less than D.
