MCQ

Direction:  Answer the question on the basis of the information given below.

The pie chart given below shows the percentage of print space allocation of articles printed on different sections of a newspaper.

If the entire space allocated to 'Entertainment' is split equally between 'Sports' and 'Nation' and the total number of words in the Nation section is now 256000, then what would be the total number of words in the 'Sports' section?

Options

  • 176000

  • 87000

  • 212000

  • 150000

Solution

176000

Explanation:

The correct answer is 175000.
The space allocation for 'Entertainment' is 20%, which when split equally into 2 halves will amount to 2 portions of 10%. If 10% is added to the pre-existing space allocated to 'Sports' of 1%, it becomes 11% and if 10% is added to the pre-existing space allocated to 'Nation' of 6%, it becomes 16%. It is given that 16% is equal to 256000, so 11 % will be equal to : `256000/16 xx 11 = 176000`
