A. 5 : 1
B. 10 : 5
C. 15 : 2
D. 20 : 2
E. 25 : 2


U/I = 5/2

I/B = 5/1

Since I is multiple of both 2 (as per first ratio) and 5 (as per second ratio) so let's assume that I = 10
i.e. Multiplying teh first ratio by 5 and second ration by 2 in each numerator and denominator

then, U : I : B = 25 : 10 : 2

i.e. U : B = 25 : 2

Answer: Option E
