Answer should be B - Let say total products = 1000
Defective products = 5 % of 1000 = 50
Defective products shipped for sale 4% of 50 = 2
Percent of the units produced are defective units that are shipped for sale = \(\frac{2}{1000} * 100\) = 0.2

Percent of defective produced = 5%
Percent of the defective units that are shipped for sale = 4%
Percent of units produced are defective units that are shipped for sale = (4/100)*(5/100)*100%
= (20/10000)*100%
= (20/100)%
= .2 %

Answer B

Alternatively , let total number of units produced = 1000
Number of defective units produced = (5/100)*1000 = 50
Number of defective units shipped for sale =(4/100)* 50 = 2

Percent of units produced are defective units that are shipped for sale= (2/1000)*100% = = .2 %

Let 100 units are produced
5 products are defective

4 percent of the defective units are shipped for sale.What percent of the units produced are defective units that are shipped for sale?


Number of defective items shipped for sale is 5*4% = 0.2

Hence answer must be 0.2%

.05T(total units) = D(defective)
.04D= S(shipped)

D=S/.04
.05T=S/.04

.002T=S

.002 *100 = .2%

Ans B
