"salary increment of Sally was 200% more than that of Harry " = 100 + 200% of 100 = 300.
"salary increment of Ron was 300% of the salary increment of Sally" = 300% of 300 = 900

Solution


Given:
    • In the last appraisal cycle, the salary increment of Sally was 200% more than that of Harry
    • Salary increment of Ron was 300% of the salary increment of Sally
    • Salary increment of Harry was $100

To find:
    • The salary increment of Ron

Approach and Working:
Salary increment of Harry was $100 and salary increment of Sally was 200% more than(or 3 times) that of Harry.
    • Therefore, salary increment of Sally = $(100 x 3) = $300

Also, salary increment of Ron was 300% of the salary increment of Sally.
    • Hence, salary increment of Ron = 300% of $300 = $900

Hence, the correct answer is option C.

Answer: C
