Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 4 : 2268

Given:

Number of workers in 2014 = 1750

Increase% per year = 20%

Percentage of people discharged in 2018 = 25%

Calculation:

Total number of workers in company in the year 2014 = 1750

Total population of the company in the year 2017 = 1750 × (120/100)3

⇒ 3024

Total number of employees in the year 2018 = 3024 × (75/100) = 2268

∴ The total number of employees at present is 2268
