Question 1

Statement A: The success rate of moving from written test to interview stage for males was worse than for females in 2003.

Statement B: The success rate of moving from written test to interview stage for females was better in 2002 than in 2003.

Solution

The success rate of moving from written test to interview stage for males in 2003 can be given by 637/60133 and for females in the same year can be given by 399/40763 . We can see that the rate of males is clearly more that that of females. hence statement A is false. 

Now the success rate of moving from written test to interview stage for females in 2002 was 138/15389 and for females in the year 2003 was 399/40763.So the  rate in 2002 is less than that in 2003. . Hence both statements are false.
