Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was lying, it's A. You can try using real numbers to see which one logically makes sense. For instance, if p was 10 (so it took her 10 minutes to write a page), you can assume that she can write half a page in 5 minutes. Only one of those answers should give you 1/2. If more than one answer does, try with new numbers. Does that help?
