Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let N be the total population of all the seven villages.

Then, population of village T below poverty line = 46% of (21% of N)

and Population of villages Z below the poverty line = 42% of (11% of N)

Required ratio = | 46% of (21% of N) | = | 46 x 21 | = 23/11. |

42% of (11 % of N) | 42 x 11 |

@Praveen

The total population has to consider for calculating the ratios.. And so 46*21 / 42*11 would give u the answer 23:11
