The correct answer is The unemployment rate is 10%, and the labor force participation rate is 50%

Explanation:

According to the scenario, the given data are as follows:

Unemployed = 10 Million

Population = 200 million

Employed = 90 million

So, we can calculate the Unemployment rate and labor force participation rate by using following formula:

Unemployment rate = Unemployed : (total employed + unemployed)

Unemployment rate: 10 : (90+10)

= 10%

And labor force participation rate = (total employed + unemployed) : Population

Labor force participation rate = (90+10) : 200

= 50%
