Correct Answer - Option 2 : b only

Given

60% of the staff is of teachers.

Out of these 40% are earning more than Rs.37,325.

Also, 50% of the total staff earn more than Rs.37,325 per year.

Formula Used

Simple concept of percentage.

Calculation

Let the total number of staff be 100

Number of teachers,

(60 × 100)/100 = 60

⇒ (40 × 100)/100 = 40

Number of teachers earn more than Rs.37,325,

⇒ [60 × 40]/100 = 24

Total number of staff earning more than Rs.37,325,

(50 × 100)/100 = 50

Number of administrative staff earn more than Rs.37,325 = Total staff earning more than Rs.37,325 - No. of teachers earn more than Rs.37,325

50- 24 = 26

Number of administrative staff earn Rs.37,325 or less,

40 - 26 = 14

Percentage of administrative staff earning Rs.37,325 or less,

(14 × 100)/40 = 35%

∴ The required percent of administrative staff earning Rs.37,325 or less is 35%.
