Let's assume 100 people took the Survey.

Exactly (60)60% answered YES for the first question -> 40 answered NO for the first question
Since (35)35% answered YES for the 2nd question -> 65 answered NO for the second question.

As a total of 15 answered NO for both the questions, 40 + 65 - 15 = 90 answered NO for both
the questions. This also means that 100 - 90 or 10 people answered YES to both the questions.

Therefore, the percentage of respondents who answered YES for both questions is \(\frac{10}{100} =\)10%(Option A)
