**‘a’ as percentage of (a+b) is same as b as percentage of (a-b). Then ‘a’ is what percentage of ‘b’. **

**200%****241%****41%****50%**

**Answer: (2) 241%**

**Solution**

**a/(a+b) = b/(a-b)**

**Let’s divide the entire equation by ‘b’ (let’s say a/b = k)**

**so k/(k+1) = 1/(k-1)**

**k(k-1) = (k+1)**

**k-1 = (2)^0.5**

**k =1.41+1 = 2.41**

**hence a/b = 2.41 , so ‘a’ is 241% of ‘b’**
