    Answer: (d) 3/4 acre 

    Solution:-
    Total area of a complex = 5 acre
    Area of green zone = 5 x 108/360
    = 5 x 6/20
    = 3/2 acre

    Area of commercial purpose = 5 x 54/360
    = 5 x 3/20
    = 3/4 acre
    Difference of the area of green zone and commercial purpose = 3/2 – 3/4
    = 3/4 acre

    Then, Land allotted for green zone is greater than that for commercial purpose by 3/4 acre.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (d) 3/4 acre.
