Of the 3,600 employees of Company X, 1/3 are clerical. If the clerical staff were to be reduced by 1/3, what percent of the total number of the remaining employees would then be clerical?

Option A:

25%

Option B:

22.2%

Option C:

20%

Option D:

12.5%

Option E:

11.1%

Option A is the correct answer.

1/3 of 36000=12000

1/3 of 12000=4000

Total number of employees=36000-4000

Total number of clerical staff=8000

Hence current percentage=8000/32000*100=25%
