ASIDE: it's super easy to take a fraction with 100 in its denominator and convert it to a percent.
For example, 19/100 = 19%, 56/100 = 56%, 0.05/100 = 0.05%, etc

In this question, we want to convert the FRACTION 0.2/1000 to a PERCENT
Take 0.2/1000 and divide top and bottom by 10 to get: 0.02/100
0.02/100 = 0.02%
Answer:

The answer is C.

Part/Whole= Percent/100

0.2/1000=Percent/100

Percent=0.2 *100/1000 = 0.02
