Should be D.
Multiply Numerator and Denominator of B by 3 , You will get 6/3^3*5^2 which is less than c.
SO A and B are ruled out.
Simplify D and you will get 1/3*5^2 for E you will get 7/3^3*5^2
So you can easily compare the last three and get to D.

Here what we can do is we can make the denominators constant and compare the fractions w.r.t their numerators.
The fraction with highest numerator will the highest one.
Lets make the dominator common

Let 3^2*5^2 be p

A) 1/p
B)2/p
C)(7/3 )/p
D)3/p
E)[75/(9*125)]/p

Numerator of D is the highest hence D is the Greatest fraction.

Hence D
