IMO A.

"f four-leaf clovers in every square meter of a field" can be written as "f per every square meters" or \(\frac{f}{m^2}\)

The Area of the field -> \(A=wide*length=w*m\).

Approximation of the four leaf clovers = \(\frac{f}{m^2}\) * \((wm)m^2\) \(= fwm\).

Let's plug in numbers. Note: avoid 1.

Let f = 2 , m= 2 , w =3

number of four-leaf clovers = 2 * 2 * 3 = 12


A) fmw = 12...............Keep

(B) fm^2*w^2 ........... 2 * 2^2 * 3^2 > 12.......Do not continue.........Eliminate

(C) f^2/(mw) ............2^2 / (2*3) < 12.......Do not continue.........Eliminate

(D) f/(mw).....same as C .........Eliminate

(E) mw/f........same as C.........Eliminate

Answer: A
