(D) \(24 < xy < 55\)

(E) \(33 < xy < 40\)



Now from the inequality we see that minimum value of x > 3 and minimum value of y >5

Hence the minimum value of xy > 15

Similarly we see that maximum value of x < 8 and minimum value of y < 11

Hence the minimum value of xy < 88

So only option C fulfills the inequality i.e \(15 < xy < 88\)
