Answer:A. 52

Step-by-step explanation:Find how many months are in 4 years,since there are 4 years between her 13th and 17th birthdays.There are 12 months in a year, so multiply 12 by 4:12(4)

= 48

So, there are 48 months in 4 years. Since she buys a new teacup every month, this means

she will have bought 48 more teacups.Add this to the 4 teacups she got on her 13th birthday:48 + 4

= 52

So, on her 17th birthday, she will have
