C) 15% |

D) 50% |

Correct Answer:

D) 50% |

Description for Correct answer:

Let 1st person be x and 2nd person be y.

Then, x's 1 day's work = \( \Large \frac{1}{26} \)

Y's 1 days work = \( \Large \frac{1}{39} \)

x's share : y's share = \( \Large \frac{1}{26} \) : \( \Large \frac{1}{39} \)

= \( \Large \frac{3}{78} \) : \( \Large \frac{2}{78} \) = 3 : 2

Difference of ratio = 3 - 2 = 1

Therefore, Required percentage = \( \Large \frac{1}{2} \times 100\% \) = 50%

1st person's wages is 50% more than the 2nd person's wages.
