**Common Information**

The following pie charts Figures (a) and (b) give the information about the distribution of weight in the human body according to different kinds of components. Study the pie charts carefully and answer the question given.

Q. |
What percentage of proteins of the human body is equivalent to the weight of its skin? |

✔ A. |
41.66% |

✖ B. |
43.33% |

✖ C. |
44.44% |

✖ D. |
Cannot be determined |

**Solution:**

Option(**A**) is correct

Proteins contribute 24% of human weight.

Skin contributes $\dfrac{1}{10}×100 = 10\%$ of human weight.

Let’s say weight of human body is 100 kg.

⇒ Weight of proteins = 24% of 100 kg = 24 Kg and

Weight of skin = 10% of 100 kg = 10kg

Now 10 kg is equivalent to $\dfrac{10}{24}×100\% = 41.66\%$ of 24 kg.

So $\textbf{41.66%}$ percent of proteins of the human body is equivalent to the weight of its skin.
