There are some mistakes in the question. The first one is that 1 mile = 1,760 yards not 1,160 and the options are listed incorrectly as well. Let's solve the problem using 1 mile = 1,760 yards The car is traveling at a constant rate of 45 miles per hour. We need to find how many seconds will it take to travel a distance of 22 yards. It means we need to convert 45 miles per hour to yards per second so that we have the same units. Since, 1 mile = 1,760 yards and 1 hour = 3600 seconds, therefore, 45 miles per hour can be converted in yards per seconds as: $$=\frac{45\times1760}{3600}=22 \text{yards per second}$$ Hence the speed of the car is 22 yards per second. Now, we can easily see from the speed of the car that 22 yards can be traveled in 1 second. The answer is 1 second. The options are incorrect. Hope it helps.
