A chicken egg is about $5$ cm in length, and an ostrich egg is about $15$ cm in length. If the chicken egg is similar to the ostrich egg (in other words, they have proportional dimensions), and if two chicken eggs is considered a "normal serving", then about how many "normal servings" would one ostrich egg provide? (Note- the "formulas" for similar solids: similar solids in which the ratio of linear measures is $a:b$ have an area ratio of ${ a }^{ 2 }:{ b }^{ 2 }$ and a volume ratio of ${ a }^{ 3 }:{ b }^{ 3 }$).

A

$4.5\text{ servings}$

B

C

D
