[A]. 876040
[B]. 932170
[C]. 981550
[D]. 1161160

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

No. of illiterate people in A.P. = [ 7 of (25% of 3276000) ] = 637000.
9

No. of illiterate people in M.P. = [ 4 of (20% of 3276000) ] = 524160.
5

Therefore Total number = (637000 + 524160) = 1161160.

The value of illiterate in A.P and the total value of literate and illiterate in A.P must be added (i.e)illiterate = 7/literate+illiterate = 7+2 = 9.

Hence it is 7/9.
