    Answer: (4) 250/7, 100/7

    Explanation:-
    Let the both numbers are X and Y.
    According to the question,
    X = 2 Y/5
    X + Y = 50        …………….. (1)
    Put the value of  X in equation (1),
    Then, 2 Y/5 + Y = 50
    (2 Y + 5 Y) /5 = 50
    7 Y = 50 x 5
    Y = 250/7

    Put the value of Y in equation (1),
    X + 250/7 = 50
    X = 50 – 250/7
    X = (350 – 250)/7
    X = 100/7

    Then, the numbers are 250/7 and 100/7

    Hence, the answer is (4) 250/7 , 100/7.
