(D) 87.5 %
(E) 95 %

Capacity of Disk = 64 GB

Filled Capacity = (3/4)*64 = 48 GB

Deleted data = (25/100)*48 = 12

Remaining data on Disk = 48 - 12 = 36 GB

New Data added = 20 GB

New Amount of data on Disk = 36+20 = 56 GB

Resulting data as % of disk capacity = (56/64)*100 = 87.5%

Capacity of Disc=64GB
Data saved originally=$$\frac{3}{4}$$*64=48 GB
Resultant amount of data saved=48-48*0.25+Additional 20 G=48-12+20=56GB

% of resultant data saved=$$\frac{Resultant data saved}{Capacity of disk} * 100$$=$$\frac{56}{64}*100$$=87.5%

Ans. option (D)

(D) 87.5 %

Given Total Capacity = 64 GB

Final Saved data = 64*(3/4)*(3/4) + 20 = 56 GB

% Data saved = (56/64) * 100 = 87.5%

I calculated 3/4 (storage used initially) * 3/4 (storage after deleting) first, to give 9/16. Since 64gb happens to easily divide 16 to get 4, it’s simple math to then figure out that 9*4=36gb was left after deleting some data. Add 20gb onto that and you get 56gb.

64 is 8^2 (or 8*8 if you prefer). 64-56=8, so 1/8th was left, or alternatively, 7/8th of the storage was full. I just happen to know that 1/8=12.5% because I work with percentages and fractions a lot, but I suppose it would’t be hard to calculate what 7/8 is as a percentage. Either way 7/8=87.5%.

My answer is also D
