Solution

The number of bananas received by Shubham and Anil is the ratio 3 : 5.
Let the number of bananas received by Shubham and Anil be 3x and 5x, respectively.
∴ 3x + 5x = 24
⇒ 8x = 24
⇒ x = 3
∴ Number of bananas received by Shubham = 3x = 3 × 3 = 9
Thus, Shubham gets 9 bananas.
Hence, the correct answer is option (D)
