A. 2: 1 B. 3: 1 C. 3: 2 D. 1: 1 Answer Workspace Report Discuss Answer with explanation Answer: Option C Explanation It is 3:2 I feel because on adding all the ratios only 3:2 results in 5 i.e 3+2=5 and 5 is not a factor of 12 Or Here your first option is 2:1 Now splitting 12 in the Ratio 2:1 we get 8 and 4. So, it is possible. Next you have 3:1 this is also possible ratio as it can be 9 and 3. Now if we look at 3:2 then it is obviously not possible to split 12 into ratio of 3 and 2. But still for last one we have7:5 this makes a total of 12. So 7 broken and 5 unbroken is also possible. So, the correct answer is 3:2. Workspace
