Got B. I quite like drawing trees for these type of questions. Allows me to visualize things much easier.

We know 10 toys are red and size a out of 100. Moving up the tree, we can find out that overall 25 toys are red, because 25% of toys are red, and 25% of 100 is 25. That leaves 15 red and size B

Moving to the blue side, overall we must have 25 blue. Since 50% of toys are size b, and we already have 15 size b of red, we need size b red + size b blue = 50, and 50-15=35

(A) 15

(E) 40


We are given that we have 100 toys, and we see that 50 are size A and 50 are size B.

We also see that 75 toys are blue and 25 are red.

Since 10 toys are red and size A, 50 - 10 = 40 are blue and size A.

Since 40 toys are blue and size A, 75 - 40 = 35 are blue and size B.

Answer: D
