B
16
C
38
D
36
Explanation

The sum, S of ratio is S = 5 + 3 + 2 = 10.

But highest share = \(\frac{5}{10} \times T\), where T is the total number of apples.

Thus, \(40 = \frac{5}{10} \times T\),

given 40 x 10 = 5T,

\(T = \frac{40 \times 10}{5} = 80\)

Hence the smallest share = \(\frac{2}{10} \times 80\)

= 16 apples
