Hello!

First let's compute the sum correctly.

0.2 + 0.006 = 0.200 + 0.006 = 0.001*200 + 0.001*6 = 0.001*(200+6) = 0.001*206 = 0.206.

And 50 + this = 50.206.

Now give this the correct name. This is fifty and 206 thousandths. 206 is called two hundreds six.

So, in numbers or in words, the correct answer is D.
