The value of history books = Rs 14.6 lakh

The value of film magazines = Rs 3.92 lakh

Hence the required percentage = {(14.6 – 3.92)/3.92}x100 = 272.4%

The Value of the literature books = Rs29.2 lakh and the total investment in books and magazine section = 146 + 28 = Rs174 lakh

So the required percentage = (29.2/174) x 100 = 16.78%

The correct option is (a)
