#### Solution

Let B's income = Rs.100

then A's income = 100 + 25

= Rs.125

Now, difference of income of A and B

= Rs.(125 - 100)

= Rs.25

If A's income is Rs.125, then B's income less than A = Rs.25

If A's income is Rs1, the B's income less than A

= Rs.`(25)/(125)`

If A's income is rs.100, then B's income less than A

= Rs. `(25/125 xx 100)`

= `(1)/(5) xx 100`

= Rs.20

∴ B's income is less than A's income = 20%
