4
The way to approach this problem is 4<a<21 and 14<b<31

Minimum possible value of a is 5 and maximum is 20
Minimum possible value of b is 15 and maximum is 30

Range = max a/min b - min a/max b
(Highest - lowest)

20/15 - 5/30 = 7/6

Hence E

Range of a/b = max(a/b) - min(a/b)
to get max(a/b) => max(a)/min(b) = 20/15
to get min(a/b) => min(a)/max(b) = 5/30

Range = 20/15 - 5/30
= 7/6

hi
i think the question should be little more elaborate.....range of the set a/b is something that cannot be assumed from the question

Range will be maximum -minimum
= maximum of a/ minimum of b - minimum of a/ maximum of b
= 20/15 - 5/30
= 35/30 = 7/6. Option E
