One way to do this problem:

3*10^-1 + 5*10^-2 + 7*10^-5
= 0.3+0.05+0.00007
= 0.35007

(OR)

Alternate approach would be like this if you do not prefer handling decimals:
(30,000+5000+7)/10^5
= 35007/10^5
= 0.35007

Ans is (C).

3/100 = 0.03 so options D and E can only be considered.

Between denominator of 5 and 7, one of them is 100 times of the other, so there has to be a 0 between 5 and 7. Hence Option E)

\(\frac{3}{100} + \frac{5}{1,000} + \frac{7}{100,000}\)

\(= \frac{3000}{100,000} + \frac{500}{100,000} + \frac{7}{100,000}\)

\(= \frac{3507}{100,000}\)

= 0.03507

Answer = E

This problem is easy to solve if you stay organized and see the trap in answer choices D/E. In this case, 3/*100 * 1000/1000 = 3000/100,000 + 5/1000 * 100/100 = 500/100,000 + 7/100,000 = 3000+500+7/100,000 = 3507/100,000.

3507/100,000 = 0.03507, so the answer tries to trip you up with answers D/E which have the correct number of zeroes after the decimal place but the wrong middle term in the decimal (D is missing a 0 in the ten thousandths column).
