Answer and Explanation
The Correct answer is : 32.50%
Explanation :
Number of males =${(\frac{60}{100}\times1000)}$ = 600.
Number of females = (1000 - 600) = 400.
Number of literates = ${(\frac{25}{100}\times1000)}$= 250.
Number of literate males = ${(\frac{20}{100}\times600)}$= 120.
Number of literate females = (250 - 120) = 130
Required pecentage = ${\left(\begin{array}{c}\frac{130}{400}\times100\end{array}\right)}$ % = 32.5 %.
