Actually, the question says tha a=1 b=2 c=4 d=5 b is twice as far from c as from a, and c is twice as far as bThe stem repeats the same thing twice. B and c are two units apart. \(\frac{41}{52}=\frac{3}{3}=1\) D

This post received KUDOS
Took 2 approaches. I put a on left of zero and then right of zero Left of zero: a = 1, b = 0, c = 2, d =3 > 2+1/30 = 3/3 =1
rightof zero: a =0, b =1, c =3, d = 4 answer: 30/41 = 3/3/ =1
Answer D
