E) 2,000


1% = 100 basis points
1/100 = 0.01 = 100 basis points

82.5% = 0.825
Basis points = \(\frac{0.825 * 100}{0.01}\) = 8250

62.5% = 0.625
Basis points = \(\frac{0.625 * 100}{0.01}\) = 6250

Difference between 82.5% and 62.5% = 8250 - 6250 = 2000
Answer E...

Difference = 82.5 percent - 62.5 percent = 20 percent

1 percent = 100 basis point
Thus, 20 percent = 20*100 = 2000 basis points

Hence E

Since 82.5 percent is 20 percent more than 62.5 percent, and 1 percent = 100 basis points, 20 percent = 20 x 100 = 2,000 basis points.

Answer: E

Like unitary system

x% means n
1% means n/x
y% means ( n/x )* y

Do the above mentally and in exam just do the following calculations

Now difference = ( 100/1 ) * 82.5 - ( 100/1 ) * 62.5
=8250 - 6250
=2000
