    Answer: (3) 45 : 36 : 28
    Explanation:-
    4 a = 5 b and 7 b = 9 c
    Then, a = 5 b/4    and  b = 9 c/7
    a/b = 5/4   and  b/c = 9/7
    a : b = 5 : 4  and  b : c = 9 : 7
    Formula:-
    A : B = a : b   & B : C + b : c
    Then, A : B : C = a x b : b x b : b x c

    Then, a : b = 5 : 4  and  b : c = 9 : 7
    a : b : c = 5 x 9 : 4 x 9 : 4 x 7
    = 45 : 36 : 28
    Then, the value of a : b : c  = 45 : 36 : 28
    Hence, the answer is (3) 45 : 36 : 28.
