(A) A > B > C
(B) A > C > B
(C) B > A > C
(D) B > C > A
(E) C > B > A

Saving= income - expense
from given options we get
savings of A = 1-3 ; -2
B= 2-2 ;0
C= 3-1 ; 2
so increasing order of the size of their saving ; c>b>a

Took ratio constant for income as x and expenses as y. Got the ratio for savings:
X-3y: 2x-2y: 3x-y
Injected values for x and y
A<B<C
IMO E
