# The following is the map of a town. The ratio of the number of general stores and that of the ground is

(a) 1 : 2

(b) 2 : 1

(c) 2 : 3

(d) 3 : 2

**Solution:**

Given, the figure represents the map of a town.

represents school

represents hospital

represents ground

represents general stores

We have to find the ratio of the number of general stores and that of the ground.

From the given map,

From the first row, there is one ground

From the second row, there are 2 groundsl

From the third row, there is one ground.

Total number of ground = 1 + 2 + 1 = 4

From the given map,

From the first row, there are 2 general stores

From the second row, there is one general store

From the third row, there are 3 general stores.

Total number of general stores = 2 + 1 + 3 = 6

Required ratio = 6 : 4

= 3 : 2

Therefore, the required ratio is 3 : 2

**✦ Try This: **On a scale of map 1.5cm represents 24km. If the distance between two points on the map is 76.5cm, then the actual distance between these points is (a) 1071 km, (b) 1224 km, (c) 3900 km, (d) 4490 km
