Secretaries = 15 %
Salespeople = 60%
Percentage of employee other than Secretaries and Salespeople = 25%
Let total number of employees of company K = N
(25/100)* N = 45
=>N=180

Let the total number of employees in the company be x
% of secretaries = 15%
% of salespeople = 60%
% of of employees other than secretaries and salespeople = 100 - 75 = 25%
But this number is given as 45
so 25% of x = 45
x = 180
Therefore there a total of 180 employees in the company K
Correct answer - B
