In a circuit for finding the resistance of a galvanometer by half deflection method, a 6 V battery and a high resistance of 11 k$\Omega$ are used. The figure of merit of the galvanometer is 60 $\mu A/$division. In the absence of shunt resistance, the galvanometer produces a deflection of $\theta$ = 9 divisions when current flows in the circuit. The value of the shunt resistance that can cause the deflection of $\theta /2,$ is closest to :
A
500 $\Omega$
B
220 $\Omega$
C
55 $\Omega$
D
110 $\Omega$
