    Answer: (3) 360 

    Solution:-
    The ratio of breadth and length of a rectangle = 4: 5
    Then, let the breadth and length of the rectangle be 4 X and 5 X.

    If the breadth of the field is 20 m less than the length.
    Then,  5 X – 4 X = 20
    X = 20

    So, the breadth and length of the rectangle = 4 x 20 = 80 m and 5 x 20 = 100 m
    Then, the perimeter of the rectangle = 2 (80 + 100)
    = 2 x 180
    = 360 m

    Hence, the  correct answer is option (3) 360
