    Answer: (3) 2/9

    Explanation:-
    The sum of two positive numbers is 20% of their squares,
    Then, X + Y = (X2 + Y2) x 20/100
    X + Y = (X2 + Y2)/5
    X2 + Y2 = 5 (X + Y)  ………………………….. (1)

    And 25% of the difference of their squares,
    Then, X + Y = (X2 – Y2) x 25/100
    X + Y = (X2 – Y2)/4
    X2 – Y2 = 4 (X + Y)     ………………………………. (2)

    Add equation (1) & (2),
    X2 + Y2 + X2 – Y2 = 5X + 5Y + 4X + 4Y
    2X2 = 9 X + 9 Y
    2X2 = 9 (X + Y)
    (X + Y)/X2 = 9/2

    Then, the value of (X + Y)/X2 = 9/2

    Hence, the answer is (3) 2/9.
