 Q. Common Information Question: 4/5 If 85% of the $S$ type cars produced in each year were sold by the company, how many $S$ type cars remain unsold?
 ✖ A. 7,650 ✖ B. 9,350 ✔ C. 11,850 ✖ D. 12,250

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Number of $S$ type cars which remained unsold in 2000 = 15% of 35,000
and number of $S$ type cars which remained unsold in 2001 = 15% of 44,000.

Total number of $S$ type cars which remained unsold:

= 15% of (35,000 + 44,000)

= 15% of 79,000

= 11,850
