    Answer: (3) 84
    Explanation:-
    Let the ratio of Tanvi and Rahul = 3 X  &  4 X.
    Rahul obtained 12 marks more than that of Tanvi.
    4 X – 3 X = 12
    X = 12
    Then, the Rahul obtain marks = 3 X = 3 x 12
    = 36
    Then, the Tanvi obtain marks = 4 X = 4 x 12
    = 48
    Sum of their marks = 36 + 48
    = 84
    Hence, the answer is (3) 84.
