as w = vi,  25 = 220*current
current = 25/220 for p1
for p2
current = 100/220
r = v/i
resistance for p1 = 2202 / 25 and for p2 = 2202 / 100

now claculate the net resistance in the circuit and then calculate the current required
calculate the voltage drop on each of the bulbs p1 and p2 and then multiply it with the current
You will get the answer – power for p1 = 16w and power for p2 = 4w

Gaurav while calculating the current you have approximated it 
You should have kept it as a fraction (1/11) and moved on 
In this case way your answer has also got approximated from 4watts to 3.98watts and from 16 watts to 15.68 watts
