600V conductors shall be installed at the max support and associated clearance.
So, if you have conductors that are supported at a max of 9'-0" intervals then you need at least 6" clearance between the conductors. Basically, if they are supported at longer intervals then the more clearance you need so they don't touch each other.

table 230.51c is based on supports of X use clearances of y. we aren't given any supports distance in the problem.
article 225.14 open conductors spacings - part c seperation from other circuits - says that open conductors shall be seperated from open conductors of other circuits by 4 in.
clarification why 4in isn't the answer? The question to me is asking the minimum and we can't assume a support system?
