(B) 60% of 28% of 240

(D) 30% of 285% of 480

Ans: D

Clearly, 60% of 28% of 240 = $$({60} / {100} × {28}/{100} × 240)$$

= $$({30}/{100} × {28}/{100} × 2 × 240)$$

= $$({30}/{100} × {28}/{100} × 480)$$

= 30% of 28% of 480.

Question: 4

1100 boys and 700 girls are examined in a test, 42% of the boys and 30% of the girls pass. The percentage of the total who failed is

(A) 58%

(B) 62%

(C) $$62{2}/{3}$$%

(D) 64%

Ans: C

Total number of students = 1100 + 700 = 1800.

Number of students passed = (42% of 1100 + 30% of 700)

= (462 + 210) = 672.

Number of failures = 1800 – 672 = 1128.

∴ Percentage failure = $$({1128} / {1800} × 100)$$% = $$62{2}/{3}$$%.

Question: 5

(A) 15%

(B) 20%

(C) 25%

(D) 40%

Ans: B

Let original consumption = 100 kg and new consumption = x kg.

So, 100 × 16 = x × 20 ⇔ x = 80.

∴ Reduction in consumption = 20%.
