The network addresses associated with the /30 mask are:

192.168.151.0
192.168.151.4
192.168.151.8

...
etc.
...

192.168.151.64
192.168.151.68
192.168.151.72
192.168.151.76
...
etc.

The correct network address for the /30 subnet is 192.168.151.72 so the router serial ports are 192.168.151.73 and 192.168.151.74 leaving 192.168.151.75 as the broadcast address.

Your assessment of the question is correct as the "block size" (as indicated in one of my other responses to a post that you made) is 4.
