Solution

33.333%

Explanation:

Let Divya purchased 6 mangoes, 10 oranges, and 5 apples
For ₹ 100
Then the cost of 3 mangoes, 5 oranges, and 2.5 apples will be ₹ 50,

But Anu buys 3 M, 5 O, and  4 A.

i.e. 1.5 Apples more and spend ₹ 60

i.e. 1.5 Apples cost ₹ 10

Cost of 15 apples = ₹ 100

Coast of 5 apples `=100/3=33.333%`
