I got this wrong in my CAT...

1) x =135

Since we know a circle is 360 degrees, and K and L contribute 50%, we have 180 degrees left. Since we are given the angle measure of X, we can solve for N

2) N = L/2

If K and L = 50%, then L must equal 90 degrees. If L is equal to 90 degrees, this would equal 25%. If N is half of L, then N = 12.5%

Am I missing something?...

It has been stated that "Division K and L together contribute 50% of the company's total profit", that means K + L = 180 degrees
It doesn't explicitly say K = L.

­Hey assuming that the figure is drawn to scale is what you seemed to miss. I had solved a similar question where it was mentioned that figure is drawn to scale. So yaa
