c) Bicycles are owned by three out of every four owners of automobiles in the United States.
d) In the United States, three out of every four automobile owners owns bicycles.
e) Out of every four owners of automobiles in the United States, bicycles are also owned by three.

I am able to get the answer correct which is A. However what i could not understand is how the three owners can have one bicycle?. It states that three owners own a bicycle.
Any clues on that?

I agree with goswami_anshul, but we are supposed to choose the best answer, not a perfect one.

The sentence does not mean that 3 onwers have 1 bicycle.
This means, for every 4 guys, 3 guys have a bicycle - 75%
For every 4 guys, you will find 3 guys each with a bicycle!
