    Answer: (2) 48

    Explanation:-
    The ratio of two numbers = 3: 4
    Let the two number be 3X and 4X.

    Then, the H C F of 3 X and 4 X = 4
    X = 4

    Therefore, the two numbers = 3 x 4 = 12 and 4 x 4 = 16

    The factors of 12 = 2 x 2 x 3
    the factors of 16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

    Then, the L C M of 12 and 16 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3
    = 48

    Hence, the answer is (2) 48.
