cannot be determined

None of these

Solution:

Let males in colony D = 2x

Females in colony A = 5x

Let population of children in colony A in 2016 = a%

∴ No. of children in colony A in 2017 =(6a/5) %

From here we cannot find the required answer

Females in colony A = 5x

Let population of children in colony A in 2016 = a%

∴ No. of children in colony A in 2017 =(6a/5) %

From here we cannot find the required answer

6.575

1.25

10.375

2.625

16.875
