**Common Information**

The following pie charts show the results of a survey among employed men in a colony.

Total population is 7,200.

Q. |
At most what percentage of the business men were of age less than 25 years? |

✖ A. |
75 |

✔ B. |
72 |

✖ C. |
68 |

✖ D. |
60 |

✖ E. |
50 |

**Solution:**

Option(**B**) is correct

Total businessmen in the colony:

$=\dfrac{50}{360}×7200$

$= 1000$

Number of people with age less than 25 years (chart (a)):

$= \dfrac{10}{100}×7200$

$=720$

⇒ Maximum number of businessmen aged less than 25 = 720

Required percentage $= \textbf{72%}$
