Solution:
Option(D) is correct

Of those who entered at 11:00 a.m., 150 would have exited at 12:00 p.m. out of 240 who entered at 12:00 p.m.. 180 would have exited at 1:00 p.m. Out of 360 who entered at 1:00 p.m., 180 would have exited at 2:00 p.m. Out of 270 who entered at 2:00 p.m., 270 would have exited at 3:00 p.m. and the 120 persons who entered at 3:00 p.m. with the persons remaining till now would have exited at 4:00 p.m.

Hence, the minimum possible number is 0.

Of the 210 persons who entered at 11:00 a.m., 150 would have exited at 12:00 p.m. and the remaining at 1:00 p.m. Now out of 240 who entered at 12:00 p.m., 120 would have exited at 1:00 p.m. and the remaining 120 at 2:00 p.m. out of 360 who entered at 1:00 p.m., 60 would have exited at 2:00 p.m., 270 would have exited at 3:00 p.m. and 30 at 4:00 p.m. The 270 who entered at 2:00 p.m. would have exited at 4:00 p.m.

Total maximum possible:

$= 60 + 120 + 270 + 270$

$= \textbf{720}$
