Hi
We will have to get them to common ratio may be per 4 days and then convert to 3 days...
So wolf will it 5.5*2=11 kgs in 4 days...
Total in 4 days = 11+3=14...
So in 3 days= 14*3/4=10.5...
For answer to be B, wolf could be eating 4.5....
So 4.5*2=9..
Combined 9+3=12 in 4 days..
In three days 12*3/4=9..
Bunuel, you may want to check if it's typo
Edited. Thank you.
