    The right answer is Option C.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Hardcover books = 15

    This represent 12% of total books.

    Let,

    x be the total number of books, therefore,

    12% of x = 15

    \frac{12}{100}*x=15\\0.12x=15

    Dividing both sides by 0.12

    \frac{0.12x}{0.12}=\frac{15}{0.12}\\x=125

    As, 15 of them are hardcover books, the remaining will not be hardcovers;

    Remaining books = Total books – hardcover books

    Remaining books = 125 – 15 = 110

    115 books are not hardcover.

    The right answer is Option C.
