20 percent of 60=12

1/3rd of 20 percent of 60=4

Atq, 20% of 60 is 1/3rd more than what no means
12+4=no
No=16

20/100 * 60 = x/3
x= 36
IMO D

20% off 60. Does this mean 80% of 60? I might be over analyzing the 'off'.

80*60/100 = x*4/3 ( one third more than)

x = 48*3/4 = 36. (D)

Waiting for OA and expert's thoughts.
