Q.  In a survey it was found that 80% of those surveyed owned a car while 60% of those surveyed owned a mobile phone, if 55% owned both a car and a Mobile phone, What percent of those surveyed owned a car or a mobile phone or both?

a. 65%
b. 80%
c. 85%
d. 97.5%

ANSWER: See Answer

Given that percentage of car owners = 80%

Percentage of mobile phone owners = 60%

Percentage of people having both car and mobile phone = 55%

Percentage of people having only car = 80 -55 = 25%

Percentage of people having only mobile phone = 60 -55 =5%

Percentage of people having car or mobile phone or both = 55% + 25% + 5% = 85%
