sum of expenses on infrastructure and salary = 40%

Sum of expanses on transport and interest on loan = 12.5 + 17.5 = 30%

% greater = (40 - 30)/30*100
= 10/30*100
= 100/3
= 33.3%

IMO Option D

let total expense = 100
so for expenses on infrastructure and salary; 40 and t+ interest= 30
so 40-30/30 ; IMO D 33.3%

Used this,

Infra + Salary = 40
Interest + Investment = 30

What % Greater , Tried to find the % change

40-30/30*100 = 33.3%
