Show Answer

Correct Answer: 20

Let number of girls and boys be 3x and 2x respectively.

Given,

3x-2x=30

Or x = 30. So the number of students = 3x+2x=5x =150.

Also, number of girls (3x) and boys (2x) = 90 and 60 respectively.

Number of students pass the exam = 68% of 150=102.
Number of girls pass the exam = 102-30 = 72 .

Therefore, number of girls who fail in the exam = 90-72=18

Hence, percentage of girls fail the exam = $\frac{18}{90}\times 100=20%$
