  • A. Quantity A is greater. 
  • B. Quantity B is greater. 
  • C. The two quantities are equal. 
  • D. The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.

Answer: C

Explanation:

Let the total number of people = 100.

No. of people who like reading books = 40% of 100 = 40. So, 60 people didn’t like to read the books.

No. of women = 40% of 100 = 40

So, no. of men = 60

For 2 sets question, use table method,

Given,

Like books Don’t like books Total
Men ? 60
Women 80% of 40 = 32 40
Total 40 60 100

 

From the table, we can find

Like books Don’t like books Total
Men 8 52 60
Women 80% of 40 = 32 8 40
Total 40 60 100

 

From the table, No. of women who don’t like to read = 8 and Number of men who like to read = 8

Both the Quantities are equal.

Hence the answer is C.
