Since x and y vary inversely, the product remains constant.

It is given that when x = 15, y = 6, therefore,

(i) Let x = 10 and y = 9

So,

Which is same as in (a), so it a valid pair of values.

(ii) Let x = 18 and y = 6

So,

Which is not same as in (a), so it not a valid pair of values.

(iii) Let x = 5 and y = 18

So,

Which is same as in (a), so it a valid pair of values.
