(A) rdt

(B) rd + rt

(C) 2dr + 3tr

(D) 3dr + 2tr

(E) rd + t

'd' double seats means number of passengers which can sit = d*2 = 2d
and 't' triple seats means number of passengers which can sit = t*3 = 3t
Thus in each row, number of passengers which can be seated = 2d + 3t

In 'r' rows total = r* (2d + 3t) = 2dr + 3tr

Hence C answer

Since rows consist of double and triple seats only, in which can sit $$2d$$ and $$3t$$ passengers, total number of passengers in a row is equal to $$2d + 3t$$

Therefore, total number of passengers in the plane is - $$r(2d +3t) = 2dr + 3tr$$

Answer: C
