Total number of students = 1800

Number of students who opted for basketball = 750 

Number of students who opted for cricket= 800

Number of students who opted for Table Tennis = 1800 - 750 - 800 

                                                                            = 250 

Now,

        The ratio of

              (a) The number  of students who opted basketball to the number of students who opted table tennis:

                              \frac{750}{250}=\frac{3}{1}=3:1

              (b) The number  of students who opted cricket to the number of students opting basketball:

                            \frac{800}{750}=\frac{16}{15}=16:15

              (c) The number of students who opted basketball to the total number of students:

                          \frac{750}{1800}=\frac{5}{12}=5:12
