6. 5
Explanation:
Let Jayant’s weight be 100 kg.
So, Maria’s weight = 50 kg.
Maria’s weight = 50 kgs = 60% of Bobby’s weight
Or 60/100 of Bobby’s weight = 50 or Bobby’s weight =5000/60=250/3=83.33
Leena’s weight = 190% of Jayant’s weight = 190% of 100 = 190 kg.
Divya’s weight = 50% of Leena’s weight = 50% of 190 = 95 kg.
The smallest of these values is 50 kg. The weight of Maria.
