The correct answer is \(z^{\frac{-4}{3}}\).

To find t in terms of z, first we need to find the value of t in terms of p:
\(t^{\frac{1}{2}} = p^{\frac{-2}{3}} → (t^{\frac{1}{2}})^2= (p^{\frac{-2}{3}})^2 → t = p^{\frac{-4}{9}}\)
Now, solve for p
\(p^{\frac{1}{6}} = z^{\frac{-1}{2}} →(p^{\frac{1}{6}} )^6 = (z^{\frac{-1}{2}})^6 → p =z^{-3}→\)
\((p)^{\frac{-4}{9}} = (z^{-3)}) ^{\frac{-4}{9}} = z^{\frac{-12}{9}} = z^{\frac{-4}{3}}\)
\(t = p^{\frac{-4}{9}}\) and \((p)^{\frac{-4}{9}} = z^{\frac{-4}{3}}\), therefore, \(t =z^{\frac{-4}{3}}\)
