## Course: CA Foundation; Topic: Ratio

### Learning Objective:

What is antecedent and consequent in ratios?

### Concept:

If p and q are two quantities of the same kind, then the fraction p/q is called the ratio of p to q.

The quantities p and q are called terms of the ratio.

The first term p is called antecedent.

The second term q is called consequent.

### Exercise 1A, Question 2, CA Foundaton Study Material

### Question: The ratio of two quantities is 3 : 4. If the antecedent is 15, the consequent is …?

𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 (𝐀) : 16

𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 (𝐁) : 60

𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 (𝐂) : 22

𝐎𝐩𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 (𝐃) : 20
