Solution

The correct option is B 4
Ratio of amounts contributed is 10 : 20 1 : 2

For the distribution to be fair, the ratio in which the pencils are divided must be equal to the ratio of the amount contributed.

6 pencils are distributed in the ratio 1 : 2 between Ram and Shyam respectively.

Ram receives 2 pencils and Shyam receives 4 pencils.
