The correct answer is D.

The ratio of men to women is 3 to 5 and the ratio of women to children is 2 to 7. First, let’s find the ratio of men to women to children. The ratio of 3 to 5 equals the ratio of 6 to 10. The ratio of 2 to 7 is the same as the ratio of 10 to 35.
Therefore, the ratio of men to women to children is 6: 10: 35.
Now, you can find the ratio of men and women to children.
6 + 10 to 35 or 16: 35.
