(A) 0.0006% of a
(B) 0.006% of a
(C) 0.06% of a
(D) 0.6% of a
(E) 6% of a


let a = 100
b= 10
c= 2
so 30% of c = 0.6
and 0.6% of a = 30 % of c
IMO D

(C) 0.06% of a

b = 0.1a

and

c = 0.2b

c/0.2 = b

c/(1/5) = b

5c = b

Thus:

5c = 0.1a

50c = a

c = a/50 = 2a/100

So c is 2% of a, and therefore, 30% of c is 0.3 x 2% = 0.6% of a.

Answer: D
