Answer = D = 25%

Say total computers = 1200

\(\frac{1}{3}\) rd are pre-1995 \(= \frac{1200}{3} = 400\)

\(\frac{1}{4}\) th of 400 = 100 (Replaced by new computers)

So total old = 400 - 100 = 300

Percentage \(= \frac{300}{1200} * 100 = 25%\)

As 1/4th of the 1/3rd were replaced with new ones that means they're asking 3/4th of 1/3rd that are still manufactured before 1995=1/4=25%.
