1.  Two tailors X and Y are paid a total of Rs. 550 per week by their employer. If X is paid 120 percent of the sum paid to Y, how much is Y paid per week?
2.  A. Rs. 200 B. Rs. 250 C. Rs. 300 D. None of these

Explanation :

Let the sum paid to Y per week be Rs. z.

Then, z + 120% of z = 550.

z + $$\frac { 120 } { 100 }$$ z = 550

$$\frac { 11 } { 5 }$$ z = 550

z = [ $$\frac { 550 \times5 } { 11 }$$ ] = 250
