Which pair of species has same percentage of carbon?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;CH_3COOH\;and\;C_6H_{12}O_6\\(b)\;CH_3COOH\;and\;C_2H_5OH\\(c)\;HCOOCH_3\;and\;C_{12}H_{22}O_{11}\\(d)\;C_6H_{12}O_6\;and\;C_{12}H_{22}O_{11}\end{array}$

Percentage of carbon in acetic acid=$\large\frac{24}{60}$$\times 100 \qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad=40% Percentage of carbon in C_6H_{12}O_6=\large\frac{72}{180}$$\times 100$
$\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad\qquad$=40%
Hence (a) is the correct answer.
