PQ = x
PR = (4/3)x
QR = PR-PQ=x/3

PQ/QR = 3/1
Hence B

3 PR = 4 PQ
If PQ = 3 , then PR = 4
=> QR = PR- PQ = 4-3 = 1
PQ/QR = 3/1

PR = 4/3 * PQ, so, QR = 1/3 * PQ.

PQ : QR = 3QR : QR = 3:1. Ans - B.

let pq=x, therefore pr=(4/3)x

hence qr=x/3

pq/qr= x*(3/x) ..........B

ans 3/1

Using PQ/QR=PQ/(PR-PQ)
Now substitute PQ in terms of PR above and find the ratio.
