According to given bar graph , we have
Total number of students in Science ⇒ 400 + 400 + 450 + 500 = 1750
Total number of students in Commerce ⇒ 200 + 250 + 300 + 250 = 1000
Number of given years = 4
Required ratio = Average number of students in Science : Average number of students in CommerceCorrect Option: B
