    B. 51 mm, 3
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 51 mm, 3. This means that the minimum trap arm size for a wall-mounted urinal is 51 mm and it can handle a Drainage Fixture Unit (DFU) of 3. The trap arm size refers to the diameter of the pipe that connects the trap to the main drainage system. The DFU is a measure of the flow rate and load that a plumbing fixture places on the drainage system. In this case, a wall-mounted urinal with a trap arm size of 51 mm can handle a DFU of 3, indicating its capacity to efficiently drain waste from the fixture.
