Correct Answer - Option 2 : 150%

Given:

Income of A = 60% less than B's income

Concept used:

⇒ % more = {(grater value - lesser value) × 100}/lesser value

Calculations:

Let, the income of B = 100

⇒ Income of A = 100 × 40%

⇒ Income of A = 40

⇒ % more = (100 - 40) × 100/40

⇒ % more = (60  × 100)/40

⇒ % more = 150%

∴ B's income is 150% percentage more than that of A's income.
