Maybe I'm missing something, but here's how I would go about calculating this.

70.9 mL * 1L/1000 mL * 0.201 mol AgNO3/L * 1 mol Ag+/ 1 mol AgNO3 * 107.8 g / 1 mol Ag+ * 1/5.00 G * 100 = 30.7 %

Answer: E, none of the above.

I cannot confirm what the correct answer would be but the answer to the problem is is E none of the above. From the looks of it, i think REH found the percentage of Ag instead of Cl in the sample. So,
1-.307=.693 or 69.3% of Cl in the sample after precipitation. What do ya think?
