1. Answer: (C) 2 : 1

Explanation:-
Expenditure on food = 120 degree
Savings = 60 degree

The ration of expenditure on food to savings = 120/60
= 2/ 1
= 2 : 1

Hence, the answer is (C) 2 : 1.

2. Answer:  (a) Rs. 12, 000

Explanation:-
The expenditure on education = 70 degree
And expenditure on housing = 54 degree

According to the question,
(70 – 54 ) degree = 1600
16 degree = 1600
Therefore, 1 degree = 1600/16
= Rs.100

Then, expenditure on food = 120 degree
= 100 x 120
= Rs. 12000

Hence, the answer is (a) Rs. 12,000.

3. Answer:  (d) Rs. 72, 000

Explanation:-
The monthly income = Rs. 36, 000
Monthly savings = 36000 x 60/360
= 36,000 /6
= Rs. 6000
Therefore, yearly savings = 12 x 6, 000
= Rs. 72, 000

Hence, the answer is (d) Rs. 72,000.
