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 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%
