let the total students be 24.

students involved in organization = 3

students are not involved in org = 21

Ratio : 3/21 = 1/7

B is the correct answer.

B.

3/24 - in student organization. Implies that 21/24 are not in a student organization.

Ratio of students in to students not in:

3/21 --> simplified to --> 1/7

Hence answer choice is B.

No of students in student organization=3
No of students not in student organization=24-3=21
Ratio=3/21=1/7
