Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : Rs. 175

Given:

Total sum = Rs 275

Calculation:

Let us assume that Shyam gets = 4x,

Ram will get = (3/4)× 4x more than Shyam = 3x more than Shyam

Ram will get = 4x + 3x = 7x

Now, total sum of money that Ram and Shyam gets will be

7x + 4x = 11x = 275

⇒ x = 275/ 11 = Rs. 25

Ram gets = 25 × 7 = 175

∴ The share of Ram is Rs 175
