agreed,i think right answer...not think confirmd if it is ratio... 
it is 1/3 confirmed answer............
20:40 1:2 sum of ratios=3 
The answer is 1/3
20 apartments+ 40 banglows = 60 20/60= 1/3 
Difference between ratio and fraction.
Ratio = Part / remaining part
Fraction = Part / whole As we are asked to find ratio, therefore, 20 / 40 = 1 /2 will be the answer. If we have been asked fraction then the answer would have been 1 / 3.
