    why is it D?

    well, product implies the multiplication of two numbers

    so that eliminates answers "a" and "b" because those are addition

    then i said one page was equal to "x"
    and then the next page would be "x+1" because its number is one unit greater than the other because its only one page more

    therefore its
    x(x+1)
