Yes the answer is C. Do we simply need to calculate or is there a method to find it?

You can directly see that D 20,300/3,900~20/4=5
That eliminates A, because it's obvious that 142/16>5
B 48/8.8~48/9>45/9=5
It's easy to calculate 3.3*5=16.5, which means that 16.2/3.3~5

Also you can easily see that 13*5=65, 13*4= 52
So 51,400/13 < 4 => C

Yes i follow that. So the approach is to make approximations and then eliminate. Thanks
