For example, 25% means 25 per 100, 25/100 and 350% means 350 per 100, 350/100. Here we are given mixed fraction percentage value 1(1/5)% = 6/5% => 6/5% = 1.2% => 1.2/100. Option C is correct answer.

Thought question to be 1 * $$(\frac{1}{5})$$ instead of a mixed fraction of the form $$1\frac{1}{5}$$.
1 * $$(\frac{1}{5})$$ = $$(\frac{1}{5})$$ itself , hence was confused !

Should have been able to deduce that question meant $$1\frac{1}{5}$$.
