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\(\frac{7}{9}\)
SajjadAhmad what am I missing here :cry: :cry:

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.
