1. 3,55,000
2. 2,70,000
3. 2,25,000
4. 1,75,000
##### Correct Option: A

Given:- The total production of mobile phones in 2007 = 35 Lakh
The total production in 2008 = 44 Lakh
Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2007 = 20%
Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2008 = 15%
Required difference = The number of B type mobiles produced in 2007 - The number of B type mobiles produced in 2008
Required difference = ( The total production in 2008 x Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2007 ) - ( The total production of mobile phones in 2007 x Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2008 )
= 44 x 20% - 35 x 15%

 = 44 x 20 - 35 x 15 100 100

 = 880 - 525 = 355 Million = 355000 100 100
