1$$\frac{1}{3}$$ = $$\frac{4}{3}$$

$$\frac{3}{4}$$ inch represents 1 mile
or, 1 inch represents $$\frac{4}{3}$$ mile
Hence, $$\frac{4}{3}$$inch represents $$\frac{4}{3}$$$$\frac{4}{3}$$ mile i.e., $$\frac{16}{9}$$ or 1$$\frac{7}{9}$$

Hmmm.... 1$$\frac{3}{4}$$ = $$\frac{7}{4}$$

$$\frac{3}{4}$$ inch represents 1 mile
or, 1 inch represents $$\frac{4}{3}$$ mile
Hence, $$\frac{7}{4}$$inch represents $$\frac{4}{3}$$$$\frac{7}{4}$$ mile i.e., $$\frac{7}{3}$$ or 2$$\frac{1}{3}$$
Hence ans C.
