Q.14: The monthly income of the tree cricketers Ankit, Sanjay and Roshan, from different sources, are in the ratio of 12 : 9 : 7, and their expenditures are in the ratio 15 : 9 : 8. If Ankit saves 25% of his income for future investments, what is the ratio of the savings of Ankit, Sanjay and Roshan ?

(B) 5 : 8 : 7
(C) 15 : 18 : 11
(D) 25 : 16 : 13

Ans : (C) 15 : 18 : 11

=> 37 x 4 = 148 (4 letters in GITA)
Now VARUN = 22+1+18+21+14= 76
