### Question 1

### Question 2

Price of sugar is increased by 60%. By what percentage should consumption be reduced so that the expenditure remains same?

**A**

$37{1/2}$ %.

**B**

$38{1/2}$ %.

**C**

$36{1/2}$ %.

**D**

$20{1/4}$ %.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let price be Rs. 100/kg and the consumption be 1 kg. The current expenditure is 100 × 1 = Rs. 100. The new price of sugar is 100 + 60 = Rs. 160/kg. Let the new consumption be c kg. Now, if expenditure is to be same we should have 100 = 160 × c, which gives c = 100/160, so the decrease is 1 - $100/160$ = ${160 - 100}/160$ × 100% = ${75/2}$, which is same as: $37{1/2}$%.
