Correct Answer - Option 3 : 56

Given:

The number when subtracted from 37.5% of itself gives the result as 35.

Calculation:

The number when subtracted from 37.5% of itself gives the result as 35.

Let the original number be 100x.

The number when subtracted from 37.5%

So, New number = 100x × (100 – 37.5/100) = 62.5x 

Resulting number = 35 = 62.5x 

⇒ x = 0.56

⇒ 100x = 0.56 × 100 = 56

Original value of number is 56.
