Answer:c)62.5cm and 37.5cm.

Step-by-step explanation:the ratio of parallelogram=5x:3x

perimeter of parallelogram=200cm

let the length of Parallelogram=5xcm

let the breadth of the parallelogram=3xcm

perimeter of parallelogram =2(L+B).

2(L+B)=200

2(5x+3x)=200

2(8x)= 200

16X=200

X=200/16

X=12.5

taking x in breadth and length

5x=5×12.5=62.5

3x=3×12.5=32.5

there fore length=62.5cm

breadth=32.5Cm

Answer:the correct option is C

Step-by-step explanation:let the ratio of parallelogram =x

=5x:3x

perimeter of parallelogram =2(L+B)

Putting the length and breadth

2(5x+3x)=200

2(8x)=200

16x=200

x=200/16

x=12.5

Putting value of x in length and breadth

5x=5×12.5=62.5

3x=3×12.5=37.5

So the length is 62.5cm and

breadth is 37.5cm.
