We can assign nice values here. 720 copies per hour, per minute it will be 12 pages and lets say that in 30 seconds we have 6 copies.
We just plug the values and answer D leads to our 6.

Explanation

Try plugging in a number for s that divides easily by 60, such as 7,200. So, if s = 7,200 seconds, that’s 120 minutes or 2 hours. Plug in a nice number for r such as 5.

So, if the copier makes 5 pages per hour for 2 hours, your target is 10 pages.

Plug s = 7,200 and r = 5 into the answers. Ballpark: Choice (A) is too large, choice (B) too small, choice (C) too small, and choice (E) far too large. Only choice (D) yields your target of 10.

Hence option D is correct!
