Percentages
5/9 ^{th} part of the population in a village are males. If 30% of the males are married, the percentage of unmarried females in the total population is

- 20
^{2}/_{9}
- 27
^{2}/_{9}
- 27
^{7}/_{9}
- 29
^{2}/_{9}

### Answer

Let the population of the village be 90.

Then, total number of males = 5/9 × 90 = 50

Total number of females = 90 - 50 = 40

Married males = 30% of 50 = 15

Married females = 15

Unmarried females = 40 - 15 = 25

Percentage of unmarried females = 25/90 × 100

= 250/9 = 27 ^{7}/_{9}

**The correct option is C.**
