Division will take precedence

9∗8÷18÷2 = \(9*\frac{(\frac{8}{18})}{2} = 9*\frac{8}{36} = 2\)

Answer = A

The rule is Multiplication/Division has priority over Adding/Subtraction if no parenthesis used. But Multiplication has no priority over Division and vice versa.
In this case we should do action as they ordered

simple use BODMAS rule.- brackets first i.e paranthesis, then ORDERS OF i.e square, roots etc, then DIVISION, MULTIPLICATION, ADDITION , SUBTRACTION.
