Explanation

Solve this problem in chunks.

To find the numerical value for 0.004 percent, divide by 100: 0.004 ÷ 100 = 0.00004.

The reciprocal of that is \(\frac{1}{0.00004}=25000\). So of the result is\(\frac{1}{5} \times 25,000 = 5,000\).

Hence option D is correct.

1/5 of the reciprocal of 0.004 percent is:

1/5 x 1/(0.004/100) = 1/5 x 100/0.004 = 100/0.02 = 100/(2/100) = 10,000/2 = 5,000

Answer: D
