    Why do we need to round off here?
    Illogical... 4.16% i.e. exact answer is already given in the options.

    If we do not consider 32 pages and continue with 31.25 then option A(4.16%) perfectly satisfy 1.25 pages, if we are allowed to round off decimals then why options are provided too close to each other.
