1. Answer:

Option B.

Step-by-step explanation:

A bicyclist rides the same number of miles in one minute.

Ratio table is given as

Number of minutes    Distances (miles)

10                                   2.5

16                                   4

x                                    7.5

48                                  12

We have to find the number of minutes taken by a biker to bike 7.5 miles

So the ratio between minutes to the distance biked will be =

Now this ratio will be similar to the ratio =

Now

x = 7.5×4 = 30 minutes

Therefore, Option B will be the answer.
