    d. (16/24) * 100%

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The infection rate = (Number of infected people / total number of people) * 100%

    After the end of round 3

    Infection rate = (8/24) * 100%

    After the end of round 4, since no one is infected more than once

    Infection rate = 2 * (8/24) * 100%

    Infection rate = (16/24) * 100%
