Solution(By Examveda Team)

Number of students enrolled in various streams:
$$\eqalign{ & \text{IT → } \frac{20}{100}\times3500 = 700 \cr & \text{Arts → } \frac{30}{100}\times3500 = 1050 \cr & \text{Science → } \frac{22}{100}\times3500 = 770 \cr & \text{Commerce → } \frac{12}{100}\times3500 = 420 \cr & \text{Management → } \frac{16}{100}\times3500 = 560 \cr} $$

Number of girls enrolled in various streams:
$$\eqalign{ & \text{IT → } \frac{18}{100}\times1500 = 270 \cr & \text{Arts → } \frac{38}{100}\times1500 = 570 \cr & \text{Science → } \frac{11}{100}\times1500 = 165 \cr & \text{Commerce → } \frac{21}{100}\times1500 = 315 \cr & \text{Management → } \frac{12}{100}\times1500 = 180 \cr} $$

Number of girls enrolled in Arts, Science and Commerce
  = 570 + 165 + 315
  = 1050
Required percentage
$$\eqalign{ & = \left(\frac{1050}{3500}\times100\right)\% \cr & = 30\% \cr} $$
