Given:
There are fewer than six spokes, so consider we have 5 spokes a,b,c,d,e

Angle between these 5 spokes should add up to 360
a+b+c+d+e = 360
Now we need to find the minimum possible angle. Since the spokes are equally spaced
360/5 = 72

Hence E

There are fewer than six spokes

The angle between spokes is inversely proportional to the number of spokes

=> angle between spokes is least when the number of spokes is maximum

=> number of spokes is 5

Since the angle in a bicycle wheel which is a circle is 360

=> smallest possible angle between any two spokes is \(\frac{360}{5} = 72\)

Hence option E

Since spokes that go from a center point in the hub to equally spaced points on the rim of the wheel, all angles are equal => a = b = c = d = e = \(\frac{360}{5}\) = 72
