Given :

C/D =7/3 and B/D =5/6

To find ratio of all we have make D value same in both: C/D = 7/3 = 14/6

therefore C:D:B = 14:6:5

Total no of animals = 14x+6x+5x = 25x

Total no. of Birds =5x

% of Birds = 5x/25x * 100 = 20%

Answer: B

We are given that the ratio of cats to dogs is 7: 3 = 14 : 6, and the ratio of birds to dogs is 5 : 6. Let’s re-express this latter ratio as dogs : birds is 6:5.

Thus, the ratio of cats : dogs : birds is 14 : 6 : 5.

Thus, birds represent 5/(14 + 6 + 5) = 5/25 = 1/5 = 20% of all animals in the store.

Answer: B
