Answer: (4) 280
Explanation:-
Given-
Let the money distributed to females be = X
The total number of male  = 160
Then, the money distributed to male = 160 x 4
= Rs.640
The ratio of male & female = 16 : 21
Then, 640/X  = 16/21
X = 640 x 21/16
= Rs.840
Then, the number of females = 840/3
= 280 females
Hence, the answer is (4) 280.
