% of literate people of any city = (Literate people of the city / Total population of the city) x 100 

Question 100

The population of the 6 cities are 250000, 200000, 220000, 300000, 150000 and 400000 respectively. Which is the correct order of the number of literate people in these cities?

Solution

Number of literate people in the cities :

City 1 : $$\frac{80}{100}\times250,000$$ = 200,000

City 2 : $$\frac{85}{100}\times200,000$$ = 170,000

City 3 : $$\frac{78}{100}\times220,000$$ = 171,600

City 4 : $$\frac{63}{100}\times300,000$$ = 189,000

City 5 : $$\frac{92}{100}\times150,000$$ = 138,000

City 6 : $$\frac{58}{100}\times400,000$$ = 232,000

=> City 6 > City 1 > City 4 > City 3 > City 2 > City 5

=> Ans - (D)
