Solution

## The correct option is B Comparison of two quantities. A ratio is a comparison of quantities. We can also say it is a relationship between two numbers indicating how many times the first number contains the second. Let's say that the ratio of apples and oranges is 4:3 What this conveys is that for every 4 apples, there are 3 oranges.
