  1. The total population of a country is 294000, out of which 150000 are males. Out of every 100 males, 98 can read and write, but only 53% of the total population can do so. Find the percentage of women who can read and write.
    1. 6.125 %
    2. 5.125 %
    3. 6.000 %
    4. 4.125 %
  1. Correct Option: A

    Number of men who can read and write = 150000 × (98 ÷ 100) =147000

    Number of men and women who can read and write =294000 × (53 ÷ 100) =155820

    Number of women who can read and write 155820 - 147000 = 8820

    Thus, out of 144000 women 8820 can read and write.

    Required percentage = (8820 × 100) ⁄ 144000 %= 6.125
