    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.
