Solution

## The correct option is B 31,800⇒ Total population is 296000.⇒ Number of males is 166000.⇒ Number of females =296000−166000=130000⇒ It is given that 50% of population are literate then,⇒ Number of literate people = 50100×296000=148000⇒ Also given that 70% males are literate. Then,⇒ Number of literate males = 70100×166000=116200⇒ Now,⇒ Number of literate females = Literate people - Literate males⇒ Number of literate females = 148000−116200∴ Number of literate females are 31,800.
