Hi, I have the following question

The table below gives the closing prices and yields of a particular liquid bond over the past few days.

Monday's Price - 106.3 and Yield - 4.25%

Tuesday's Price - 105.8 and Yield - 4.20%

Wednesday's Price - 106.1 and Yield - 4.23%

What is the approximate duration of the bond?

A. 18.8

B. 9.4

C. 4.7

D. 1.9

How do you solve this. and how is that when the yield is increasing the price is also increasing and not decreasing ?
