    Answer: (4) None of these 

    Solution:-
    Let the marks score of a subject be X

    One third of the marks scored by Ram,
    Then, marks scored by Ram = X/3

    2/9 of the scored by Maneesh in the same subject.
    Then, marks scored by Maneesh = 2 X/9

    The sum of their marks in that subject is 120.
    Then, X/3 + 2 X/9 = 120
    (3 X + 2 X)/9 = 120
    5 X = 120 x 9
    X = 24 x 9
    X = 216

    Then, scored of marks is 216.

    So, marks scored of Ram = 216/3
    = 72

    Hence, the correct answer is option  (4) None of these.
