**Common Information**

Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below.

Pie chart l and Pie chart ll show the break up — according to different expenditure heads and savings of the incomes of Mr. and Mrs. Anand respectively. Pie chart III shows the break up — according to the type of savings — of the total savings of the couple (i.e., the savings of Mr. and Mrs. Anand put together).

Q. |
If Mr. Anand‘s savings are twice the total savings of the couple invested in fixed deposits, what is the ratio of the income of Mr. Anand to that of Mrs. Anand? |

✖ A. |
7 : 3 |

✖ B. |
3 : 7 |

✖ C. |
5 : 9 |

✔ D. |
9 : 5 |

**Solution:**

Option(**D**) is correct

Fixed Deposits = 15% of their total savings as it Is given that this is half of Mr. Anand' savings, Mr. Anand's savings are 30% of their combined savings and the remaining 70% must be Mrs. Anand's savings.

⇒ Ratio of their savings = 3 : 7

$⇒\dfrac{\text{5% of Income of Mr. Anand}}{\text{21% of income of Mrs. Anand}} = \dfrac{3}{7} $

$⇒\dfrac{\text{Income of Mr. Anand}}{\text{Income of Mrs. Anand}} = \dfrac{63}{35}$

$= \dfrac{9}{5}$

So, $\textbf{9 : 5}$** **is the correct ratio.
