B
179:321
Your Answer
C
89:159
Your Answer
D
2:3

Solution

The correct option is B 179:321
Let the sum of nth terms of two AP be denoted by sn and Sn. The first term and common difference of two AP's be denoted by a & d and A & D respectively
snSn=5n+49n+6n2(2a+(n1)d)n2(2A+(n1)D)=5n+49n+6(2a+(n1)d)(2A+(n1)D)=5n+49n+6Dividing Numerator and denominator by 2,a+(n1)2dA+(n1)2D=5n+49n+6
The ratio of 18th term of two A.P. is
a18A18=a+17dA+17DComparing with a+(n1)2dA+(n1)2D=5n+49n+6 ...(1] we get,(n1)2=17n=35Putting n=35 in (1], we geta18A18=5(35)+49(35)+6=179321
