    I think the answer is D

    There are 228 million kilometers to Mars, about 328 million in the USA, and 1.3 billion Facebook users. That's too little, I mean.

    option is absolutely D
     just imagine the candies in over 20 billion game rounds per month, the total would be infinite and cant match any of the other figures!

    My answer is D because there is 54.6 million meters betwen Earth and Mars. Plus as of 2018 the Census reported that the population of the United States was 327.2 million people and counting. Finally, per Google there is an average of 1.56 billion people who log onto Facebook daily. However, in 2017 VentureBeat reported that there had been 350 trillion swipes since Candy Crush began in 2012. So I am sure that the swipes have probably been doubled since then, so for sure with Facebook having 1.56 blillion users per day doesn't even touch Candy Crush's 350 trillion swipes in 2017. So now I am for sure that the answer is D because none of the above amounts even touch Candy Crush's swipes as of two years ago and Im sure its grown tremendously since then also! Trish

    I agree with everyone that the answer has to be D.  There is no way that you can count the number of swipes since the day the game was released because that would be an infinite number.  Thank you so very much @Jelly Jenny for posting this question.  It made me do a Google search on statistics and man there are a lot out there.  I might just have to put some of these statistics on my website.  =)
