Because after seating nepalese, 4 seats were left for 4 indians.

How can the denominator be 96 when the total employees are divided 3:2 between full and part time?

Both comes out to be 0.3. Just a slight change in the way of calculation.

Also, I think it’s easier to say that for every 10 employees 3 are eligible for bonus, actually 3/10 should be the proper answer.

Yes. The ratio is 3:5. So instead of solving directly using this ratio, I assumed there are 300 permanent employee and 500 non permanent, 800 total employee. Now if you calculate you’ll get 3/10.

Re: Quant Question of the Day Chat [#permalink]
300 - 1/4 = 75
500 - 1/3 = 166.67 (not possible since people)

In such cases, always try to take the product of denominators (or LCM in some cases where possible) for easier calculations

Approximation? 165.

Re: Quant Question of the Day Chat [#permalink]
A school administrator will assign each student in a group of N students to one of M classrooms. If 3<M<13<N, is it possible to assign each of the N students to one of the M classrooms so that each classroom has the same number of students assigned to it?

(1) It is possible to assign each of 3N students to one of M classrooms so that each classroom has the same number of students assigned to it.

(2) It is possible to assign each of 13N students to one of M classrooms so that each classroom has the same number of students assigned to it.

Can someone give an explained solution for this question ?

What is the answer? I think it’ll be E.
