a/ 2 is 1/4 b
a is 1/2 b

hence b is 2a. Option A fits best.

Hi Madhavi..
Solve the Q for answer or substitute..
Solution..
\(a=\frac{2p}{100}*b.........b=\frac{50a}{p}\)
Now, in terms of % of a...\(b=\frac{50a}{ap}*100=5000/p\)

Substitute..
Take a as 50 and b as 100, so 2p=50% or p=25
So b in % of a = 100*100/50=200%
Substitute in Choices
Only E gives 200%

a= 2p% of b --> 2pb/100
Now b is what percentage of a
2pb/100 -->100%
then b --> (100*b) / (2pb/100)

After cancelling b and dividing 100 by 2 -- > (50*100)/p ==> 5000/p

Ans: E
