Pretty direct question as Pi is 22/7 without any calculation even manually.

Just reinforcing a basic, but useful fraction for those of us who will be taking the test over the next few weeks.

Pi does not equal 22/7

Just a note, you shouldn't stop at choice C, choice D or E could have been 6283/2000
