Correct Answer - Option 2 : 51%

Given

Marks scored by Aman = 1225

Formula Used

Percentage = (Actual/Total) × 100

Calculation

Qualifying marks for NITs = 1225 + 125 = 1350

Total marks for JEE mains = (1350/45) × 100 = 3000

Qualifying marks for other colleges = 80% of total marks = (80/100) × 3000 = 2400

Percentage marks Aman scored with respect to qualifying marks = 1225/2400 ×  100 ≈ 51

∴ Percentage of marks Aman scored is 51%.
