Solution

## The correct option is A 1:2Let 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, $$\frac{C}{T} = \frac{1}{2}.$$
