ExplanationSet up a group grid and, because you are dealing with percents and fractions, plug in 100 for the total number of employees at the company. There will be 60 men, of whom 6 are still employed after the restructuring.

Subtracting 60 from 100 gives you 40, the total number of women. Five times the 6 men who are still employed gives you 30, the number of women still employed. After filling in this information, the group grid looks like the figure below.

There are 30 women, but the question asks you what percent this represents of the total number of women. 30 out of 40 is 75 percent, so the answer is choice (E).
