If each letter on the number line above is the number that corresponds to the point below it, then which of the following is closest to D/A?

A. A

B. B

C. C

D. D

E. E

The difference between A and 1 AND between D and 3 is almost the same....

so it will be A=0.9 and D = 2.9 or A=0.8 and D = 2.8

If A=0.8 and D = 2.8.. \(\frac{2.8}{0.8}= \frac{7}{2}=3.5\) so near to E

even if we take 2.9 and 0.9 ... \frac{2.9}{0.9} = 3.22

E
