Carlos can write 3 to 4 pgs in (2/3)h, ie., (9/2) to (12/2) pgs in 1 hr;

ie., (45/2) to 30 pgs in 5 h, ie., 22.5 to 30 pgs in 5 h.;

Answer choice A comes closest to approximating this result.

If it is 2/3rds of an hour, then A.

If it is supposed to be 2 to 3 hours then it is D.

5 / (2/3) = 5 * 3/2 = 15/2 = 7.5

3 * 7.5 = 22.5

4 * 7.5 = 30

Choice A: between 25 and 30 <––––––
