QA – Placement Quizzes | Percentages | Question 2

Mary’s salary is reduced by 10%. By what percentage must her new salary be increased in order to gain her old salary?
(A) 137⁄9 %
(B) 194⁄9 %
(C) 100/9 %

(D) 110⁄9 %


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Let her old salary be Rs 100. Then, her new salary = 100 – 10 = Rs 90.
So, to gain her old salary, her new salary must be increased by Rs 10. Therefore, the required percentage = (10⁄90) × 100% = 100/9 %.
