You get percent increase = (after−before)/before(100). If you assume the total number of coins collected this year as 100c, the number of coins collected from last year becomes 100c(80%)=80c. In other words, if 80c -> 100c,
Percent increase = (100c−80c)/80c(100) = 20c/80c(100)=25, so you get 25%.

Therefore, the answer is D.
Answer: D

last year coins collected=80%
let this year coins collection be 100%

percent change= This year-Last year coin collections/Last year coin collection*100.
20/80*100=25% Ans (D)
