Its not mentioned if remainder is 0 or not. Assuming Remainder is 0 when number is divided by \(\frac{2}{3}\) has quotient \(\frac{9}{2}\).

Number is in form, \(x = \frac{2}{3} * \frac{9}{2} + 0\)

\(x = 3\). Answer (C)...

Consider the number for which the quotient is \(\frac{9}{2}\) as x

Since x divided by \(\frac{2}{3}\) gives us the quotient \(\frac{9}{2}\)
x * \(\frac{3}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{2}\)

x = \(\frac{9}{2}\)*\(\frac{2}{3}\) = 3(Option C)

C. 3

D. 6

E. \(\frac{27}{4}\)


n *\(\frac{3}{2}\) = \(\frac{9}{2}\)
=> n = 3

C is the answer.

Alternatively
N = PQ + R
N = \(\frac{2}{3}\)*\(\frac{9}{2}\) + R
N = 3 + R
The Question doesn't mention if the division has a remainder, so R = 0
=> N = 3

If \(\frac{N}{\frac{2}{3}}\) =\(\frac{9}{2}\)

Then \(\frac{2}{3} * \frac{9}{2}\) = N =\(\frac{18}{6} = 3\)

Answer C
