Ans is b ) 50 percent ?

Given in system there are on an average 5 new processes arrive per minute.

So,Arrival rate = 5 process / min

In every 12 second a ( $\frac{60 }{5}$ )new process arrives in system or we can say every process stays 12 second with the CPU.

Given service time = 6 seconds

CPU Utilization =$\frac{Service \;Time}{Staying\;Time}*100$

=$\frac{6}{12}*100$=50%

Hence,Option(B)50% is the correct choice.
