For Maximum value : It should be less than 1/11 + 1/11 +1/11... 10 times = 10/11 ~ 1

For Minimum Value : It should be greater than 1/20+ 1/2-+ 1/20 .. 10 times = 10/20 = 1/2.

Thus, the answer should lie between 1/2 and 1. Correct ans : E.

If you want a more precise answer:

You know there are 10 numbers and first value is \(\frac{1}{11}\) and last value is \(\frac{1}{20}\)

So

\(Avg = \frac{First + Last}{2} = \frac{31}{440}\)

Then

\(Sum = Avg * n = \frac{31}{440}*10 =\frac{31}{44} \approx{\frac{3}{4}}\)

Answer E.

The sum of a sequence of reciprocals is determined by the first and the end term. So, since 1/2=10/20<1/11+1/12+1/13+......+1/20<10/11<10/10=1, the correct answer is E.
