A. 96%

B. 51.1%

C. 90%

D. 52.1%

Answer: Option A

Solution(By Examveda Team)

Let Ashu's salary = 100; Ashu's salary after rise = 125
Then Vicky's salary = 175
Vicky's salary after rise of 40% = 245
[As 10% of Vicky's salary is 17.5 then 40% = 17.5 × 4 = 70]

Difference between Vicky's salary and Ashu's salary = 245 - 125 = 120
% more Vicky's salary than Ashu's = $$\frac{{120 \times 100}}{{125}} = 96\% $$
