We have to solve this problem by BODMAS(Bracket - Of - Division - Multiplication - Add - Substract)

First step will be to simplify inside the bracket -> $$\frac{\frac{3}{4}}{\frac{2}{3}} = {\frac{3}{4}}*{\frac{3}{2}} = \frac{9}{8}$$

Second step will be to simplify the numerator -> $$\frac{1}{2}*\frac{9}{8} = \frac{9}{16}$$

Third step will be to simplify the expression -> $$\frac{\frac{9}{16}}{\frac{2}{9}} = {\frac{9}{16}}*{\frac{9}{2}} = {\frac{81}{32}}$$ (Option A)
