    Answer: (2) 13: 10

    Solution:-
    Let the first number and second number be X and Y.

    One-half of a certain number is equal to 65% of 2nd number.
    Then    X/2 = Y x 65/100
    X = Y x 13/10
    X/Y  = 13/10

    Then the ratio of 1st and 2nd number is 13: 10.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 13: 10.
