In Town X, 64 percent of the population are employed, and 48 percent of the population are employed males. What percent of the employed people in Town X are females?

(A) 16%
(B) 25%
(C) 32%
(D) 40%
(E) 52%

This is a tricky question not because of its difficulty level but because of its wording .
We have to find out the percentage of females in employed people .

Let the population of town be 100
Total educated people =64
Total educated males =48
Educated females =Total educated people -Educated males
=64-4=16
Percentage of females in educated people =16/64=0.25 or 25%
