a.1/3 as total apartments plus bungalows are20 and 40 so their ratios become 20/60 and 40/60 and apartments ratio becomes 1/3 as eliminating figures by 20 :) may be i am wrong but ratios are stated in this manner :)

The answer should be 1/2 or 1:2.

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.
