Detailed Solution for Test: Arun Sharma Based Level 3: Percentages - Question 10

The pollution in normal atmosphere is less than 0.01%. Due to leakage of methyl isocyanide (MIC) from a factory the pollution is increased to 20%. If every day 80% of the pollution in the atmosphere is neutralized, in how many days will the atmosphere become normal?

Detailed Solution for Test: Arun Sharma Based Level 3: Percentages - Question 15

The pollution has been increased to 20%.

Every day, 80% pollution is being neutralized, so only 20% of the total pollution remains the next day.
Let x days be needed to bring back the pollution to normal.
Thus, (0.2)x×0.2<0.0001
⇒(0.2)x<0.0005
We have (0.2)4=0.0016 and (0.2)= 0.00032 (can guess the value x on the basis of number of digits after decimal point too)
Hence,minimum of 6 days will be required to bring the pollution back to normal.
