    Answer:

    both : Sal or his sister

    Step-by-step explanation:

    comic books: 8

    detective books: 4

    total books: 12

    so 8/12 books are comic books, so Sal was right

    But, his sister could also be right because 8/12 and 2/3 are proportional

    proportional: this when they have the same ratio or they are equivalent

    2/3 times 4/4 = 8/12
