Correct Answer - Option 2 : 12 : 16 : 25

Given :

Wages of 3 labourers A, B and C are in the ratio 10 : 12 : 15

A's wage increased by 5 : 6, B's by 3 : 4 and C's by 3 : 5

Calculations :

Let the wage of A, B and C be 10x, 12x and 15x

A's new wage after increment = (6/5) × 10x = 12x

B's new wage after increment = (4/3) × 12x = 16x

C's new wage after increment = (5/3) × 15x = 25x

Ratio of new wages

A : B : C = 12x : 16x : 25x

⇒ 12 : 16 : 25

∴ Ratio of new wages is 12 : 16 : 25
