In the beginning of 2005 population of Rajgarh is 1.2 lakh. In 2005 lot people move to Rajgarh from nearby villages, so the population of Rajgarh increases by x% in 2005. But in 2006 lot of people go to work in abroad, so the population of Rajgarh is decreases by y% in 2006. At the beginning of 2007 population of Rajgarh is still 1.2 Lakh, then which of the following is correct

  1. x>y
  2. y<x
  3. x=y
  4. can’t be determined

      No, x will have to be more than y

      take an example of 100rs
      20% increase will not be nullified by 20% decrease, rather it would take 16% to get back to 100rs

      so clearly x>y
