Official Solution:

Which of the following is closest to $$\frac{(998*0.02 + 4.97)}{(1002*0.02 + 5.03)}$$?

A. 0.50
B. 0.89
C. 0.98
D. 1.02
E. 1.05

Notice that the numerator is slightly less than the denominator: $$\frac{(998*0.02 + 4.97)}{(1002*0.02 + 5.03)} \approx \frac{20+4.97}{20+5.03}$$, thus the fraction will be less than, but very close to 1.

What's the harm in ignoring 0.02 in numerator/denominator? I suppose minimal. Also, let's approximate other numbers.

4.97 -> 5
5.03 -> 5

Equation becomes:
(998+5)/(1002+5) = 1003/1007

Too close. C would be the best approximation.

Cheers.

after a little bit calculation I got 24.93 as numerator and 25.07 as denominator. then I ended up selecting answer choice D.
The numerator is slightly greater than 25. why don't you consider that?

even according to your calculations the numerator (24.93) is LESS than the denominator (25.07), so the fraction must be less than 1.
