Correct Answer - Option 1 : 15

Given:

The average salary per employee in the marketing department of MNC is Rs. 400.

The average salary of 10 senior employees = Rs. 550 per employee

The average salary of the remaining staff = Rs. 100 per employee.

Concepts used:

Average salary = (Total salary of all employees)/(Number of employees)

Calculation:

Let the total number of employees in the marketing department of MNC be x.

Total salary of all employees = Rs. 400 × x = Rs. 400x

Total salary of all senior employees = Rs. 550 × 10 = Rs. 5,500

Remaining staff = Total number of employees - Number of senior employees = x – 10

The average salary of the remaining staff is Rs. 100 per employee.

Total salary of remaining employees = Rs. (100x – 1,000)

Total salary of all employees = Total salary of all senior employees + Total salary of remaining employees

⇒ 400x = 5,500 + 100x – 1,000

⇒ 400x – 100x = 4,500

⇒ 300x = 4,500

⇒ x = 4,500/300

⇒ x = 15 employees

∴ There are total 15 employees working in the marketing department of MNC.
