5.13 /0.02

512/2 Multiply num and deno by 100 and rounding off 513 to 512

256

So closest to fraction is option B.

Using Scientific notation, we can write $$\frac{5.13}{0.02}$$ as

$$\frac{{513* 10^{-2}}}{{2*10^{-2}}}$$

The $$10^{-2}$$ will get cancelled and we can write $$\frac{513}{2}$$ as approximately $$\frac{500}{2} = 250$$

Hence, the correct answer is Option B.
