__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

Let the initial expenses on Sugar was Rs. 100.Now, Price of Sugar rises 25%. So, to buy same amount of Sugar, they need to expense,

= (100 + 25% of 100) = Rs. 125.

But, They want to keep expenses on Sugar, so they have to cut Rs. 25 in the expenses to keep it to Rs. 100.

Now, % decrease in Consumption,

$$\frac{{25}}{{125}} \times 100 = 20\% $$

**Mind Calculation Method;**

100 === 25%↑ ===> → 125 === X%↓ ===> 100

Here, X = $$\frac{{25}}{{125}} \times 100 = 20\% $$
