D.

n has to be positive, so we get 6-n>0 and 4-n<0

sparky, I am not sure if I follow this question, but according to your statement, n has to be positive. But if n > 0 then
2 < (1/2)n < 3, which means n has to be 5, then it should be C.
Can you be more brief

(2 < (1/2)n < 3)*2 => 4<n<6

no problem

n has to be positive, otherwise it;s not possible that 1/2<3/n

I too arrived at the same solution as Sparky, but the OA, just flew right above my head.

Assuming n > 10 is the answer
then 2/10 > 0.5 > 3/10, but that can never be the case.

Could the OA be wrong??
