    Exclamation how much of the global wealth is owned by the richest 1%

    "How much of the global wealth is owned by the richest 1% of the world's population?"
    what does 'by the richest 1% " mean?!
    I think it was : "How much of the global wealth is owned by the richest who are 1% of the world's population?"!
    Am I right?!
    We should always put our percent in front of our word to show the percent?!
    Why is it used in that way?!

    Thanks.

    No.

    'How many C grades and above are achieved by 50% of the school's students?'

    Or, reflecting the OP:

    'How many C grades and above are achieved by the brightest 50% of the school's students?'
