Solution


Given:
    • In a club, there were two types of members, permanent and temporary.
    • 30% of the members were temporary members and were not getting top class benefits.
    • 12% of the members were permanent members who were getting top class benefits.

To find:
    • The maximum percentage of members who were temporary members and were getting top class benefits

Approach and Working:
Let us assume that the total number of members in the club is 100.
    • Temporary members without benefits = 30% of 100 = 30
    • Permanent members with benefits = 12% of 100 = 12
    • Therefore, remaining members = 100 – (30 + 12) = 100 – 42 = 58

Now, to maximise the number of temporary members with benefits, we need to minimise the number of permanent members without benefits
    • Minimum number of permanent members without benefits = 0
    • Therefore, maximum number of temporary members with benefits = 58
    • And, percentage of temporary members with benefits = 58%

Hence, the correct answer is option C.

Answer: C

A. 70%
B. 65%
C. 58%
D. 55%
E. 40%


Say there are 100 members.

30 are temporary and not getting benefits
12 are permanent and getting benefits

So maximum 58 (= 100 - 30 -12) could belong to the group of temporary members getting benefits.

Answer (C)
