Pi and T ( sounds like a tea party) (*) ? Way too advanced for my pay grade -- and most likely for your textbook level too. Looking at it as a simple potentiometer voltage divider (notice the term 'passive' there :smile: !) seems much more appropriate.

Still we have the nagging issue that the book answer seems wrong. Let's ask a second opinion from e.g. @NascentOxygen !
Ah, and we have @Merlin3189 approving of our bold claim too !

(*) [edit] I now learned here that our simple circuit is an L pad !

With the attenuator being a resistive divider (as implied), then (b) would be the correct answer.
