Number of insect in colony A for week 8 = 18

Number of insect in colony B for week 8 = 10

Number of insect in colony C for week 8 = 52

Therefore, the total number of insect in colonies A, B, and C for week 8 = 18 + 10 + 52 = 80

Number of insect initially in colonies A, B, and C are 80, 62 and 58 respectively

The total of all three colonies are 80 + 62 + 58 = 200

Thus, the ratio of the total number of insect in all three colonies for week 8 to the ratio of total number of insect initially in all three colonies = 80 to 200

= 2 to 5

Ans A
