Not a good question.

The two numbers (according to statement A) are 10 and 32, which ratio is < 1/3.

However, I could pick other numbers that satisfy the QA condition and the answer would be A.

The numbers 10........31 have squares of 3digit .These are 22 numbers.

32......99 have squares of 4 digit.These are 68 numbers.

So we are comparing, 22/68 and 1/3

So the answer is B.  Intern Joined: 15 Sep 2017

Two-digit integers are 10 - 99
number of two-digit integers whose squares are three-digit numbers: 22 ( that is 10^2 = 100 and 31^2 = 961, the integers between this two numbers will also have 3-digit number as square)

number of two-digit integers whose squares is a four-digit number: 68 (that is 32^2 = 1024 and 99^2 = 9801, the integers between this two numbers will also have 4-digit number as square)
so,$$\frac{22}{68} = \frac{11}{34} < \frac{1}{3}$$ Re: Ratio of the number of two digit integers   [#permalink] 12 Sep 2018, 02:49
