Yes. Guessing !
Consider the full fraction as 12.83K / 23.83K ~ 13/24 . it is ROUGHLY half.
eliminate A (one third)
eliminate B (~one third)
eliminate D (> two third)
we left with C.

Dont think about the difficulty, Just get it right !

When you are faced with a problem that seems to require a whole lot of number crunching, then the "trick" to such a problem is usually figuring out how to avoid the number crunching.
What I did in this case was look at the numerator and denominator and chop off all but the highest digit of the smaller number (in this case they have the same number of digits).
128352 -> 1
238368 -> 2
So, anything not even close to 1/2 can be safely eliminated: A and D can go, which leaves B and C
Need more precision? Add one digit back to the end of each estimate
12/23
Since 12 is more than half of 23, let's see whether only one of the remaining choices is greater than 1/2 -> That leaves C
done
