    Answer: (1) 14

    Explanation:-
    Ann, Bill and Ken shared some stamps in the ratio = 2:3:4.
    After game,
    The ratio become = 5 : 2 : 2

    Ann won 21 stamps,
    Then, 5 X – 2 X = 21
    3 X = 21
    X = 21/3
    X = 7

    Then, the Ken lose = 4 X – 2 X = 2 X
    2 X = 2 x 7 = 14

    Hence, the answer is (1) 14.
