Can anyone help me with this problem.

I am new to GMAT world and just started my GMAT journey. Need some help to pace up and fulfill my dream.

I am unable to understand the approach to use for this question. Appreciate the help.

A street vendor sells only hot dogs and hamburgers, and at the beginning of
the day has a ratio of two hot dogs for every one hamburger. At the end of
the day in which he did not add any new items or sell any hamburgers, and
only sold some of his hot dogs, his new ratio is one hot dog for every two
hamburgers. Which of the following cannot represent the number of hot dogs
he sold?
(A) 2
(B) 3
(C) 6
(D) 9
(E) 24
