Q. |
The ratio of incomes of Pankaj and Gauri is $3:5$ and the ratio of their expenditures is $2:3$. Who does save more? (You have to assume that no one takes any loan from anywhere) |

✖ A. |
Pankaj |

✔ B. |
Gauri |

✖ C. |
Both save equally |

✖ D. |
Depends upon the incomes of Pankaj and Gauri |

**Solution:**

Option(**B**) is correct

The ratio of income of Pankaj and Gauri is $3:5$. Ratio of their expenditures is $2:3$ i.e $3:4.5$

Had the ratio of expenditures been $3:5$, ratio of savings also would have been $3:5$, but since ratio of their expenditures is $3:4.5$ only. Obviously savings of Gauri will be something more than \(\dfrac{5}{3}\) of savings of Pankaj.

Thus **Gauri** is the answer.

Given income ratio 3:5 (take it as Pankak - 30rs: Gauri - 50rs as salary each). The ratio will be 3:5 as mentioned.

Now expenditure 2:3 (for every 20rs Pankaj spends: Gauri spends 30rs)

Now find difference 30-20:50-30 = 10:20 (So Gauro saves more)

please explain the answer
