    well, you wouldn't count the hours per person because that makes no sense, so you cant automatically cross out options A and B

    Now you have to choose between C and D, what is the independent and dependent variables? For example, rushing water by the minute. the minute would be the independent variable because no matter who many or how little the water flows, the time doesn't wait or stop, it is not affected by the water

    With that in mind, that means the hours would be the independent variable, which means the people are the dependent people. So the answer would be D
