# A city has a population of 300000 out of which 180000 are males. 50% of the population is literate. If 70% of the males are literate, then the percentage of female who are literate is :

A. 20%

B. 25%

C. 35%

D. 45%

### Solution(By Examveda Team)

Number of males = 180000
Number of females :
= (300000 - 180000)
= 120000
Number of literates :
= 50% of 300000
= 150000
Number of literate males :
= 70% of 180000
= 126000
Number of literate females :
= (150000 - 126000)
= 24000
∴ Required percentage :
= $$\left( {\frac{{24000}}{{120000}} \times 100} \right)\%$$
= 20%
