With the help of the given information, we can draw the following table.

 Organisation Male Female HR 108 272 Marketing 315 160 Finance 270 144 Administration 90 224 Manufacturing 117 0 Total 900 800

Hence, we can say the total number of male employees in the Administration department after the transfer from the HR department = 90 +26 = 116

And, the number of female employees in the HR department = 278 + 28 = 300

The number of female employees left in the Administration department = 224 - 28 = 196

Hence, the required ratio = 116 : 196 = 29 : 49

Summary:
