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%.
