**Hint:**In this we apply the probability of happening an event and not happening of that particular event. So, the probability of A speaking truth is P (A) = $75\% $or \[\dfrac{3}{4}\]and not speaking truth or lie $P(\overline A )$ = $25\% $ or$\dfrac{1}{4}$. Similarly the probability of B speaking truth is P (B) = $80\% $ or $\dfrac{4}{5}$and not speaking truth is $P(\overline {B)} $= $20\% $ or$\dfrac{1}{5}$. In case of contradiction with each other is when A speaks truth and B speaks lie or A speaks lie and B speaks truth. For finding the probability we add both the situation and find the percentage.

**Complete step-by-step answer:**

Let A be Event that speaks the truth and B be Event that speaks the truth

So, the probability of A speaking truth P(A)= $75\% $

=$\dfrac{{75}}{{100}} = \dfrac{3}{4}$

The probability of B speaking truth P(B)= $80\% $

=$\dfrac{{80}}{{100}} = \dfrac{4}{5}$

We know $P(A)+P(\overline A )=1$ Hence,

Probability of A not speaking truth $P(\overline A )$= $1 - \dfrac{3}{4} = \dfrac{1}{4}$

Probability of B not speaking truth $P(\overline {B)} $ = $1 - \dfrac{4}{5}=\dfrac{1}{5}$

Now, A and B contradict each other=[A speaks truth and B speaks lie] or [A speaks lie and B speaks truth]

We will add both situation

= $P(A) \times P(\overline B ) + P(\overline A ) \times P(B)$

=\[(\dfrac{3}{4} \times \dfrac{1}{5}) + (\dfrac{1}{4} \times \dfrac{4}{5})\]

=$\dfrac{3}{{20}} + \dfrac{4}{{20}}$

=$\dfrac{7}{{20}}$

For percentage we multiply $\dfrac{7}{{20}}$ by $100\% $

=$(\dfrac{7}{{20}} \times 100)\% $

=$35\% $

So, the case when A and B contradicts is $35\% $.

The correct answer is C=$35\% $.

**So, the correct answer is “Option C”.**

**Note:**When there is a case of contradiction we must consider both the cases i.e. probability of happening of the event and probability not happening of the event. The probability of the event lies between 0 and 1, where 0 and 1 are included.
