6 inch = 0.5 foot

Volume removed = 60 * 25 * 0.5 = 750 cubic foot
In gallons = 750 * 7.5 = 5625 Gallons

E

6 inch = 1/2 foot

Volume to be removed = 60 * 25 /2 = 750 cubic foot
In gallons = 750 * 7.5 = 5625 Gallons

Hence, answer is E

Volume drop in cubic feet= 60x25x0.5 = 750 cubic feet.

Given, one cubic feet= 7.5 gallons.

Therefore, 750 cubic feet= 750x7.5= 5625 gallons.

Ans E
