$\textrm{according to the question}$

$\frac{area of 1^{st}square}{area of 2^{nd}square}=\frac{9}{1}$

$\because$ $\textrm{area of  square is $a^2$,where a is side of square.}$

$\textrm{assume that side of square 1 is $a_1$ & side of square 2 is $a_2$.}$

$\implies$ $\frac{(a_1)^2}{(a_2)^2}=\frac{9}{1}$

$\implies$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2}=\frac{3}{1}$

$\therefore$ $\textrm{side of square 1 is 3 and side of square 2 is 1}$

$\because$ $\textrm{perimeter of square is 4a,so there ratio is;}$

$\implies$ $\frac{4*a_1}{4*a_2}$

$\implies$ $\frac{4*3}{4*1}$

$\implies$ $3:1$

$\textrm{Option b is correct.}$

A man invests an amount of $₹15,860$ in the names of his three sons $A,B$ and $C$ in such a way that they get the same interest after $2,3$ and $4$ years respectively. If the rate of simple interest is $5\%$, then the ratio of the amounts invested among $A,B$ and $C$ will be $10:15:20$ $110:115:120$ $\dfrac{1}{10} : \dfrac{1}{15}:\dfrac{1}{20}$ $\dfrac{1}{110}:\frac{1}{115}:\frac{1}{120}$
