Directions to Solve

The following pie chart give the information about the distribution of weight in the human body according to different kinds of components. Study the pie charts and answer the question.

Distribution of Weight in Human Body

3.
What is the ratio of the distribution of proteins in the muscles to that of the distribution of proteins in the bones ?
2:1
2:3
3:2
Cannot be determined
Explanation:
It cannot be determined since the respective distributions are not known.

The answer could be 2:3. if we assume that protein is uniformly distributed in muscle and bones.

D is correct because pie chart here is talking about distribution of weight, like 3/10 of body weight consists of muscles, 1/5 bones weight, and 24% proteins weight, since we don't know the proportion of bones and muscles in our body it cannot be determined.

Here, it can be cleared if we differentiate between" portion of the body "and" portion of the body's weight", this questions talks about a portion of the body's weight.

In perspective, Protein in muscles: protein in bones will be 3/2:1 and this ratio did not in options so it's can not be determined!

See, If the question will be the ratio of the total amount of protein present in the muscle to the ratio of total amount protein present in the bone then the answer will be 3:2.

But in this case, they have asked about the distribution of protein that we don't know. So, here in this case, the answer will be "can not be determined".

I think the percentage of protein is a different subject and weight distribution of components of the body is a different subject. They cannot be correlated or levied as the weight of the body which does not confirm the presence of protein into it per unit of weight. Since it is asked as a ratio of proteins between two components given in weight, it appears alien.

We can't equate the two because we are not given the weight of protien.

In the first question, we are asked to compare the two quantities but here we are asked to check the distribution of proteins. In order to do that we need to know the weight of protein which is not given. So the option is D.

According to me, it is 3:2.

@Hrishikesh.

Can you explain me why we take 24% of 30?
