i. Of the 1000 inhabitants of a town, 60 % are males of whom 120 % are literate. If, of all the inhabitants, 25% are literate, then what percent of the females of the town are literate ?

- 32.50%
- 43.00%
- 46.60%
- 53.20%

Answer and Explanation

The Correct answer is : 32.50%

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 %.
