Option(B) is correct

Taxes constitute 18% of Mr. Anand's income and rate of tax is 30% beyond 1 lakh.

⇒ 18% of Income = 30% of (Income - one lakh)

⇒ 30000 = 12% of Income

⇒ Income= Rs.2.5 lakh

Similarly, for Mrs. Anand

10% of income = 20% of (Income - one lakh)

⇒ 10% of income = 20000

⇒ Income = Rs.2 lakh

Ratio of earnings = 5 : 4
