Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Shortage of funds arranged through External Assistance:

$= \text{ Rs.} (11,486 – 9,695)\text{ crores}$

$= \text{Rs. }1791 \text{ crores.}$

⇒ Increase required in Market Borrowing = Rs. 1791 crores

Percentage increase required$

$= \left(\dfrac{1,791}{29,952}\right)× 100\%$

$= 5.98\%$

$≈ \textbf{6%}$
