Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 1 : 26%

Given:

A's salary is 35% more than B's salary

Formula Used:

% = (A – B)/A × 100

Calculation:

Let the B's salary be 100  

Then, The salary of A = 100 × (135/100) = 135

Now, percent B's salary less than A's salary = ((135 – 100)/135) × 100

⇒ (35/135) × 100 = 25.92 ≈ 26%

By 26% B's salary less than A's salary.
