(A) 30%

(B) 32%

(C) 47%

(D) 62%

Ans: B

Price of 5 pairs when purchased separately = Rs. 5.

Price of 5 pair package = Rs. 3.40.

Difference in price = Rs. (5 – 3.40) = Rs. 1.60.

Therefore, Required percentage =$$(1.6/ {5} × 100)$$% = 32%.

Question: 2

A city has a population of 3,00,000 out of which 1,80,000 are males. 50% of the population is literate. If 70% of the males are literate, then the percentage of females who are literate is

(A) 10%

(B) 20%

(C) 25%

(D) 30%

Ans: B

Number of males = 180000.

Number of females = (300000 – 180000) = 120000. Number of literates = 50% of 300000 = 150000. Number of literate males = 70% of 180000 = 126000.Number of literate females = (150000 – 126000) = 24000.

Therefore, Required percentage = $$(24000 / {120000} × 100)$$% = 20%.Question: 3
