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.
