    Answer: A. There are 3 squirrels for every 25 pigeons in the park

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The options include:

    A) There are 3 squirrels for every 25 pigeons in the park.

    B) There are 3 squirrels for every 5 pigeons in the park.

    C) There are 5 squirrels for every 3 pigeons in the park.

    D) There are 25 squirrels for every 3 pigeons in the park.

    Since the ratio of squirrels to pigeons in the park is 15 to 125. The common factor we have here is 5. We can then divide the figures given by 5. This will be:

    = 15/125 = (15/5)/(125/5) = 3/25

    This mean that for every 3 squirrels, there are 25 pigeons in the park.

    Therefore, the correct answer is A.
