D. 6
E. $$\frac{27}{4}$$

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)

Hence, answer will be (C) 3

A. $$\frac{4}{27}$$

B. $$\frac{1}{3}$$

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 =$$\frac{18}{6} = 3$$

n/(2/3) = 9/2

3n/2 = 9/2

6n = 18

n = 3
