(A) 0.02
(B) 0.16
(C) 0.4
(D) 0.6
(E) 2.5

As the calculation we're asked to do is straightforward, we'll just do it.
This is a Precise approach.

1/30 in 5 minutes --> 12*(1/30) in 12*5 minutes = 12/30 in 1 hour
Since 12/30 = 6/15 = 2/5 = 0.4, (C) is correct.

(C) is our answer.

1/30 in 5 minutes
1 in 150 minutes
speed=1/2.5 (in miles per hour)=0.4 miles per hour
