i think ther is nothing wrong with type of question. the basic concept is from finance.

The answer should be D.
MPS= p
EPS=e
% increase in mps = k
% increase in eps = m
MPS, after the increase= p(1+k)
EPS, after the increase = e(1+m)

ratio of mps to eps, before the increase = p/e
ratio of mps to eps, after the increase = p(1+k)/e(1+m)

% change in ration of mps to eps = (ratio before - ratio after)/ratio, before

= [p(1+k)/e(1+m) - p/e] = [(k-m)/(1+m)]x 100=100 (k-m)/(100+m)

(1+k%)/(1+m%)-1=(k%-m%)/(1+m%)=(k-m)/(100+m)
Make it into percentage
