**Answer D.**

For minimum value pick the smallest value from $X$ as numerator and largest value from $Y$ as denominator

$\implies $Minimum value $=\frac{1}{4}$

For maximum value pick the largest value from $X$ as numerator and smallest value from $Y$ as denominator

$\implies$ Maximum value $=\frac{3}{2}$

Their product = $\frac{1}{4}\times \frac{3}{2}=\frac{3}{8}$
