Answer:D. 3

Explanation:First of all the mechanical advantage of a wedge is defined as the ratio of its slope length to its width.

Mathematically,

where,

IMA= Mechanical Advantage

L= slope length, and

w= width.

Given that,

slope length, L= 3.3 inches, and

width ,W= 1.1 inches

Then,

Mechanical Advantage, IMA
