D
50

Solution

The correct option is C $$8$$
Let $$x$$ be the total scouts in the camp.
Scouts from Gujarat,
$$\Rightarrow \dfrac{40}{100}x = \dfrac{4x}{10}$$
Scouts Ahmadabad,
$$\dfrac{20}{100} \times \left( \dfrac{4x}{10} \right )$$
$$= \dfrac{8x}{100}$$
$$= \dfrac{8}{100} \times x$$
$$= 8\%$$ of $$x$$
