A. (201)^2 / t
B. [(202)(201)]/t
C. 201/t
D. 202/t
E. [(202)(201)]/t^2


D

s = 100*...*200
t = 100*...*200*201
This means
s = t/201
Therefore,
1/s + 1/t = 201/t + 1/t = 202/t

I get D..

s=100*...200
t=100*...201, basically t=201*s

s=t/201

1/s=201/t

201/t + 1/t= 202/t

D.

t = 201s or s = t/201

1/s + 1/t = 201/t + 1/t = 202/t

Answer = D

s = 100*...*200
t = 100*...*200*201
t = s * 201

So, s = \frac{t}{201} & \frac{1}{s} = \frac{201}{t}

Therefore,

\frac{1}{s} + \frac{1}{t} = \frac{201}{t} + \frac{1}{t} = \frac{202}{t}

If you become confused for big numbers, just take easy numbers as example.
Here, Let s= 2*3 and t = 2*3*4 ,

So t= s*4 or S= t/4. Similarly in the actual problem
s =t/201. 1/s = 1/(t/201) or 1/s = 201/t
1/s + 1/t = 201/t + 1/t = 202/t
Answer-D
