Key word : p is 6 times as large as q

q = 10 p =60

% that q is less than p = $$\frac{{60 - 10}}{60}$$ * 100

= 83$$\frac{1}{3}$$

$$p = 6$$ & $$q = 1$$

So, $$q$$ is $$5$$ less than $$p$$

The % that q is less than p , is: $$\frac{5}{6}*100$$ = $$83\frac{1}{3}$$, Answer must be (A)

p = 6q => q = p/6

->(p-q)/p *100
->5p/6p *100
-> 83.333
so option A
