Lets x=total toyes per week
t= hours in week
y=jane's output per hour
Befor assistant - he makes toyes x=t*y => y=t/x
After assistand he makes toyes 1.8x=0.9t*y =>y =2t/x

So 100 % ... C is the answer

I can't get an equation for this, but I used POI:
if Jane + assistant = 180% and Jane works less with assistant (-10%), than it's obvious, that assistant adds more then 80% to Janes work, so A and B is out.
180% - Jane do together with assistant, so - it is too much.
Hence, assistant = 100%
