For which integral, is the below example, a Riemann sum approximation.?

The example is: 1/30( sqrt(1/30) + sqrt(2/30) + sqrt(3/30)+...+sqrt(30/30))

A. Integral 0 to 1 sqrt(x/30)

B. Integral 0 to 1 sqrt(x)

C. (1/30) Integral 0 to 30 sqrt(x)

D. (1/30) Integral 0 to 1 sqrt(x)

E. (1/30) Integral 0 to 1 sqrt(x/30)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Honestly, I don't have a clue on how to ascertain this question. I understand that Riemann sums are basically a crude estimation of the area under a curve using rectangles. Can someone tell me which one is right and say why.
