 A) Only C B) Only A & B C) All are required D) None of the statements is required

Answer:   D) None of the statements is required

Explanation:

From the given data,
(60 - 45)% = 12.5 + 4
15% = 16.5
=> 100% = ?
100% = 16.5 x 100/15 = 110

Hence, P = 45% of 110 = 45x110/100 = 49.5
Q = 50% of 110 = 55
R = 60% of 110 = 60 x 110/100 = 66
M = 12.5 + 49.5 = 62 or 66 - 4 = 62

Hence, no statement is required to answer.
