I do also. The given set comes to an average of 2 and the smallest *different* primes you can substitute would be 2 and 3. That would bring the new average to 4. Of course, 4 is 200% of 2, but it's just a 100% increase.

I go with D....

1st average is 2
2nd average is 4

percentage increase:
4-2/2*100= 2/2*100=1*100=100%

hope that helps
