The question mentions first and last address of any subnet, in option d the first address is the address for first subnet (subnet #1) and the second address is the last address for last subnet (subnet #1024) . at first you might be tempted to go with option b , but there the number of hosts are 245, which is not possible for (32-26=6) host Id bits.

* but a thing I don't understand is, the second part ,according to my calculation should be 172.89.255.254/26, because subnet #1024 net Id would be 172.89.255.192/26.
