I think it is C,

16 to 5

I used combinations and the ratio would be ->

(20!/(5! X 15!)) / (20!/(4! X 16!)) => (16! X 4!)/(15! X 5!) =>16/5

$formdata=20C5+$ : $formdata=20C4$

$formdata=20C5+=+\frac{20!}{15!5!}+=+\frac{20*19*18*17*16}{5*4*3*2*1}+=+\frac{19*3*17*16}{1}$

$formdata=20C4+=+\frac{20!}{16!4!}+=+\frac{20*19*18*17}{4*3*2*1}+=+\frac{5*19*3*17}{1}$

$formdata=\frac{19*3*17*16}{5*19*3*17}+=+\frac{16}{5}$
