Currently there are 100 males members (heh) in the senate. If we replace 25 of them with women, we'll now have 75 men, and 25 women. That gives us a 75:25 ratio, which reduces to 3:1, so B is the correct answer.

the original no of males = 100
the original no of females = 0.

when 25 males were reduced by 25 females; new no of male= 75 and new no of female = 25
thus; male:female= 75:25 =3:1
