- 3:2

Answer: (b) 2:1

Solution: Number of males in the company D, $$ = \frac{2}{3} \times 1800 $$ $$ = 1200 $$ Number of males in the company C, $$ = \frac{2}{5} \times 1500 $$ $$ = 600 $$ Hence, Required ratio $$ = 1200 : 600 $$ $$ = 2 : 1 $$

Solution: Number of males in the company D, $$ = \frac{2}{3} \times 1800 $$ $$ = 1200 $$ Number of males in the company C, $$ = \frac{2}{5} \times 1500 $$ $$ = 600 $$ Hence, Required ratio $$ = 1200 : 600 $$ $$ = 2 : 1 $$
