Solution

The correct option is **B**

60%

Assume 100 students in the class.

No of students who don’t speak Hindi or English : 25% of 100 =25

Thus all remaining 75% students i.e. 75 students speak Hindi whereas 60 % speak English.

Let percentage of students who speak both languages be 'X'.

75 = 75 + 60 - X

X = 60

Therefore, 60 percent students speak both languages.
