Dogs only house-16,Avg Pet:1.5 ,Dogs=16*1.5 =24
Cats only house -24,Avg Pet:1.25,Cats=24*1.25=30
Both -8 ,Avg Pet:3.25,Both=8*3.25 =26
Total Pets=24+30+26=80

Ratio =5/3
It is numerical problem ,i used substitution based on options:
A.If 18 dogs,cats=30 .so total =48 ,not satisfied.
B.24 dogs,cats=40 ,not satisfied
C.30 dogs,50 cats,Satisfied.
Ans.C

First calculate total number of pets: (16×1.5)+(24×1.25)+(8×3.25)= 80 total pets. Cat to dog ratio is 5:3 so 3/8ths of pets must be dogs. 3/8*80=30. IMO OA should be C
