Answer: (3) 25 %

Explanation:-
Let the Raghav’s  wages be 100.

Raghava’s wages were reduced by 50 %.
Then, Raghav’a  wages = 100 – 100 x 50/100
= 100 – 50
= 50

Again he increased by 50  %,
Then, Raghav’s wages = 50 + 50 x 50 /100
= 50 + 25
= 75

Loss = 100 – 75
= 25

Percentage of loss = 25 x 100/100
= 25 %.

Hence, the answer is (3) 25 %.
