## CAT 2018 - Slot-1 - Percentage - Question-3 - In an examination, the maximum possible

Q. 3: In an examination, the maximum possible score is N while the pass mark is 45% of N. A candidate obtains 36 marks, but falls short of the pass mark by 68%. Which one of the following is then correct?

1. N ≤ 200

2. 243 ≤ N ≤ 252

3. N ≥ 253

4. 201 ≤ N ≤ 242

From the question we can say ( 100% – 68%) of ( 45% of N ) = 36

Or 32/100×45/100 N=36

N=360000/(32×45 )=250
