Percentages

Raju has Rs. 9000 with him and he wants to buy a mobile handset; but he finds that he has only 75% of the amount required to buy the handset. Therefore, he borrows Rs. 2000 from a friend. Then

  1. Raju still does not have enough amount to buy the handset.
  2. Raju has exactly the same amount as required to buy the handset.
  3. Raju has enough amount to buy the handset and he will have Rs. 500 with him after buying the handset.
  4. Raju has enough amount to buy the handset and he will have Rs. 1000 with him after buying the handset.

Answer

Let the price of handset be Rs. x

75% of x = 9000

x = Rs. 12000

After borrowing Rs.2000 from a friend,

Raju has Rs.9000 + Rs.2000 = Rs.11000

But, he needs Rs. 12000 to buy mobile handset.

The correct option is A.
