Answer is option A. Rate can be calculated as R = D/T which is x/5
to cover z meters, time is 5z/x.

During a recent track meet, Peter ran x meters of the 100 meter dash in 5 seconds; running at the same rate, how many seconds will it take Peter to run z meters of the 200 meter dash?

A) 5z/x
B) 5zx
C) 5x/z
D) 5/xz
E) xz/5

Speed of Peter = x/5 meters per second
Time needed to run z meters = DISTANCE/SPEED = z / (x/5) = 5z/x
Option A

The values 100m and 200m have no role to play here and are just given to confuse you.
