Hi....

Two ways..
1) proper method
Y pages in x min or x/60 h....
So 1 page in x/60y....
1000m pages in 1000*m*x/60y=50mx/3y
C
2) substitute smart numbers..
Take m as 1, x as 60min and y as 1000..
So our answer too should be 60min and here 1 hour..
C gives you 1 as answer..
C

y pages .......=x mins
1.................= \(\frac{x}{y}\) mins
1000m........= \(\frac{x}{y}\)*1000m mins

Divide by 60 to get the answer in hours

=\(\frac{x}{y}\)*\(\frac{1000m}{60}\)

= \(\frac{50mx}{3y}\)

Answer: C.
