Two rods, one made of aluminium and the other made of steel, having initial lengths \(l_1\) and \(l_2\) are connected together to form a single rod of length ${l}_{1}+{l}_{2}$. The coefficient of linear expansion for aluminium and steel are ${\alpha}_{a}$ and ${\alpha}_{s}$ respectively. If the length of each rod increases by the same amount when their temperature is raised by \(t^\circ \mathrm{C},\) then the ratio \(\frac{l_1}{l_1+l_2}\) is:

1. $\frac{{\alpha}_{s}}{{\alpha}_{a}}$

2. $\frac{{\alpha}_{a}}{{\alpha}_{s}}$

3. $\frac{{\alpha}_{a}}{{\alpha}_{a}+{\alpha}_{s}}$

4. $\frac{{\alpha}_{s}}{{\alpha}_{a}+{\alpha}_{s}}$
