36.

1 boy can eat 4 hotdogs in 6 minutes, 6 boys can eat 36 in 6 minutes

Number 2 is correct.

Number 3'3 reasoning is correct but you multiply the number of boys (6) by the number of hotdogs 1 boy can eat in 6 min (4). So, 6 x 4 = 24.

A boy and a half eat a hot dog in 1.5 minutes, so
3 boys eat 2 hot dogs in 1.5 mins and 6 boys can eat 4 hot dogs in 1.5 mins.... therefoe 6 boys can eat 4*4 = 16 hot dogs in 6 mins....
