a. 70%
b. 60%
c. 40%
d. 30%


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Total number of employees be 100

Then number of men = 6000/100 = 60

Number of women = 4000/100 = 40

Therefore, number of men drawing more than Rs. 50000 = 2400/100 = 24 men

Since the number of total employees drawing more than Rs. 50000 = 3600/100 = 36

Number of women who draw more than Rs. 50000 = 36- 24 = 12

Number of women who draw less than Rs. 50000 = 40 -12 = 28

Therefore, Percentage of the women who draw less than Rs. 50000 per year = 28/40 x 100% = 70%
