Any of the answers can be written as \(X=50%Y\)

except A: there is no way a sum can reach 0 in this scenario, even if divided by 0,5 infinite times

$10000.00


Suppose she invests n$ in the starting then in the subesequent days the money left after the day will be
n/2, n/4, n/8, n/16, n/32
Since the amont is a multiple of n so the amount can never be 0 , as in this case the initial investment itself will be zero.

So, answer will be A

Hope it helps!
