    Expenditure of Company A in 1998 ( E1 ) = Income of Company A in 1998 x   100
    100 + % profit

    Expenditure of Company B in 1998 ( E2 ) = Income of Company B in 1998 x   100
    100 + % profit

    Ratio of their expenditures = E1 : E2

    Correct Option: B

    Let the income of the two companies in 1998 be P.

    Expenditure of Company A in 1998 ( E1 ) = P ×    100
    100 + 35

    Expenditure of Company B in 1998 ( E2 ) = P ×   100
    100 + 30

    Ratio of their expenditures = E1 : E2 =100x 130 = 26 : 27 .
