Q. |
$A$, $B$ and $C$ play cricket. $A$'s runs are to $B$'s runs and $B$'s runs are to $C$'s as $3:2$. They get altogether 342 runs. How many runs did $A$ make? |

✔ A. |
162 |

✖ B. |
108 |

✖ C. |
72 |

✖ D. |
None |

**Solution:**

Option(**A**) is correct

$A:B=3:2=9:6$

$B:C=3:2=6:4$ (*making B equal)*

Therefore, $A:B:C$ = $9:6:4$

Therefore, the runs made by A= \(\dfrac{9}{19}\times 342=162\)
