Let's try plugging in the answer choices.

We can start by writing "0.35 represents what percent of 0.007?" as "0.35 equals what percent of 0.007?"
Or "What percent of 0.007 equals 0.35?"
Or just: _____ of 0.007 = 0.35

First note that 100% of 0.007 = 0.007
So, we need a percent that's GREATER than 100%
ELIMINATE A, B, and C

Try answer choice D:
500% of 0.007 = 5 x 0.007 = 0.035
No good - eliminate D

By the process of elimination, the correct answer is E
