Assume Length of AB = x
so AB = CD = x and BC = 3x

so distance between AD = \(5x = \frac{1}{3}-\frac{1}{2} = \frac{1}{6}\)
or \(x= \frac{1}{30}\)
now AC = \(4x+\frac{1}{3} = \frac{4}{30} + \frac{1}{3} = \frac{14}{30} or \frac{7}{15}\)

Hence Option D

Let B coordinate be x and C be y

So AB=CD=BC/3

x-(1/3)=(1/2)-y=(y-x)/3

x-(1/3)=(y-x)/3 --------(1)

(1/2)-y=(y-x)/3---------(2)

Two equations above

Compare and solve for y
y comes out to be 7/15

Let BC is x
Then AB = CD = x/3

Total distance between AD= 1/2 - 1/3 = 5x/3, solve for x.

Now C is D - x/3 = 14/30 Option D 7/15
