In a stock portfolio of 80 shares, the ratio of shares invested in bonds to shares invested in mutual funds is 1:3. If the number of mutual funds remains the same, how many bonds would have to be added for the ratio of bonds to mutual funds to be 5:6?


A 30
B 40
C 50
D 70
E 80


Total = 80.

share invested in bonds = 20

Share invested in mutual fund = 60.

Now , mutual fund share is same but share in bond has to be increased to make the ratio 5 to 6.

20 + x / 60 = 5/6

x =30.

A is the correct answer.

m+b=80
b/m= 1/3
b+x/m=5/6
m=80-b
4b=80
b=20

120+6x=300
x=30
IMO A
