In this problem, first we need to clarify the definition of antecedent and consequent. Then, we need to find, whether the antecedent and consequent of a ratio be interchanged or not. Complete step-by-step answer: When we compare two quantities of the same kind using a fraction, the fraction expresses that by how many times the first quantity is smaller or greater than the second quantity. The division or fraction of the first quantity and second quantity is called ratio. The first quantity of the ratio is called antecedent whereas the second quantity of the ratio is called consequent. For example- If there is a ratio of m:n, m is termed as antecedent or first term and n is termed as consequent or second term. The antecedent and consequent of a ratio cannot be interchanged unless there is a change in the given statements. Thus, the option (B) is the correct answer. Note: The first quantity of the ratio is called antecedent whereas the second quantity of the ratio is called consequent. The antecedent and consequent of a ratio cannot be interchanged unless there is a change in the given statements.
