Solution

Given that 4 times the amount received by A is equal to 6 times the amount received by B and 11 times the amount received by C.

This can be written as,

4A = 6B or A : B = 3 : 2 ....(1) and

4A = 11C or A : C = 11 : 4 ....(2)

Multiply equation (1) with 11 and equation (2) with 3 we get,

A :B = 33 : 22 and A : C = 33 : 12 (or)

A : B : C = 33 : 22 : 12 (or) 66 : 44 : 24

Hence, option D is the correct answer.
