Total number of subscribers = 25000

Fifty percent of the subscribers to newspaper X are corporate managers = \(\frac{50}{100} * 25000\) = 12500

out of these corporate managers, 30 percent are in the financial field = \(\frac{30}{100} * 12500\) = 3750

40 percent of the subscribers who are corporate managers in the financial field are money managers = \(\frac{40}{100} * 3750\) = 1500

Hence option A
