Solution:
Option(A) is correct

The ratio of Total Revenue to Total cost for Air transport:

$= \dfrac{10R}{11C}$

Where $R$ is the Revenue Generated of the company.

$C$ is the Total Cost of the company.

If the profit % of the company is 20%, then

$\dfrac{R}{C} = 1.2$

So $\dfrac{\text{Total Revenue}}{\text{Total Cost}}$, for couriers sent through Air transport:

$= \dfrac{10}{11}×1.2$

$= 1.0909$

Hence, the profit % for couriers sent through Air transport, $= \textbf{9.09%}$
