To Find : - > Percentage of females who are engineers = \(\frac{8}{60}*100 = 13.33%\)

Let there be 100 Employees in firm
60% of 100 are female = 60 female
8% of 100 are female Engineer = 8 female enginer

Ques asks for percentage of female who are Engineer = 8*100/60=13.33% (Option C)

We can let the number of employees in the company be 100. Thus, 60 employees are female, and 8 employees are female engineers. Thus, the percent of females who are engineers is:

8/60 = 2/15 ≈ 0.1333 = 13.33%

Answer: C
