Solution

The correct option is **A** 1:2

Let the revenues in 2013 from cars be 100c, and the revenues from truck sales be 100t;

Then the revenues in 2014 from cars will be 89c, and the revenues from truck sales will be 107t;

Given that the sales in 2014 were 1% higher than that of 2013;Therefore (89c + 107t) = 1.01(100c+100t)

or

89c+107t = 101c+101t or 12C = 6T

Therefore, \(\frac{C}{T} = \frac{1}{2}.\)
