"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
Option C

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.

A. \$300
B. \$600
C. \$900
D. \$1200
E. \$1500

The phrase “200% more than” means “3 times the amount.” Since the salary increment of Harry was 100, Sally’s was 3 x 100 = 300.

The phrase “300% of” means “3 times,” and since Ron’s was 300% of Sally’s, we have 3 x 300 = 900.
