+1 for C.

Aisha’s income in 2003 = 100 (Let)
Aisha’s income in 2004 = 120 (20% greater than her income in 2003)

Income of 2004 / Income of 2003 = 120 / 100 = 6/5

Hence, C.

Let assume the income of both the years.

2003 = 100 \$
2004 = 120 \$................( 20% greater)

Ratio = 120 /100

= 6 : 5
