    The correct answer is 20:1. This ratio suggests that, on average, there are 20 students for every teacher in a class. This indicates a moderate class size, with a relatively manageable number of students per teacher. A lower ratio would indicate smaller class sizes, allowing for more individualized attention, while a higher ratio would suggest larger class sizes and potentially less individualized instruction.
