I think error in (C) a child of six years breathes about 25 times per minutes.

A small baby breathes about 45 times per minute while
a child of about six years breathes -----25 times per minute.

I think "of" and "about" not siting respectively. so error in part (c). and also agree with sug.

Why small is used here, baby's have to be small?

So use of small here is irrelevant here.

What about - "A small baby breathes about 45 times per minute 'where as' a child of about six years breathes about 25 times per minute".

While --> whereas.

So according to me, the option (c) is incorrect.

Sandeep Kumar said: (Aug 13, 2016)  
It is a superfluous error. A child of six years. About is not required.

Nandita said: (Aug 25, 2016)  
C is correct because it describes the range. Means the child may be of 6 or more than 6. So "about" is used.

Divyanshu Goyal said: (Feb 27, 2017)  
There are certain doubts-.

1) there should be "six year" instead of six years.

@Sug.

About must be there just because we are not talking about six years old child, we are generalizing the thing.

I think the error should be 'A'. Because spurious use of a small baby.
