Solution

## The correct option is C $$40$$Let total number of men and women in the group be $$100$$. Out of which $$n_1$$ are women and $$100-n_1$$ are men. Given average age of group is $$30$$.$$\Rightarrow \cfrac{32(100-n_1)+27n_1}{100}=30\therefore n_1 = 40$$Hence percentage of women in the group is $$40$$.Mathematics
