An important information is that D ≠ 0
Thus, D= (S-W)*T gives D/T = S-W
D/T + W = S

I would say answer B. However, I'm not sure if it is a trap and I fell in it. It seems too easy.

It's not a trap; Question is easy.

Just open the brackets, Will get value of S

D=(S-W)*T
D/T = S-W
S = D/T + W -- Option B

Please give kudos, if you find my explanation good enough

D = ST - WT

D + WT = ST

(D + WT)/T = S

D/T + W = S
