In a certain company, 30 percent of the men and 20 percent of the women attend night school. If 40 percent of all employees are men, what percent of all the employees attend night school?

6 Answers

Wouldn't it Still be 50% of the employees

This question is misleading and designed for you not to get the answer because it's leading you to believe that the answer should be a percentage. when it should ask for the total of employees that attend night school. Less

Why do I see this answer and 25%?!? Its not a total number but a % of all employees. Tell me if Im wrong so I dont bother taking the test. Thanks. Less

The interviewer was probably trying to ask about readability, but could only go so far as to ask about word count. I'd bring some info about Flesch-Kincaid to the interview table. Less

What a stupid question. It all depends on your audience and the type of material you are writing. Stating 12 words as an absolute is laughable. There are other more important things to ask a tech writer. I should know, 25 years in the business. Less

As many as it takes for the client/customer to understand the application.
