Answer Verified Verified
Hint: Find the total number of players and then find the required ratio by dividing the number of cricket players with the total number of players.

Complete step-by-step answer:
According to question, number of cricket players $ = 30$,
Number of kho-kho players $ = 20$,
Total number of players $ = 30 + 20 = 50$.
$ \Rightarrow $Required ratio $ = \dfrac{{{\text{Number of cricket players}}}}{{{\text{Total number of players}}}} = \dfrac{{30}}{{50}} = \dfrac{3}{5}$
Thus, the ratio is $\dfrac{3}{5}$ and (C) is the correct option.

Note: The ratio of the number of kho-kho players to the total number of players must be $\dfrac{2}{5}$ because total ratio is 1.
