The graph below shows the number of graduates (in '000) of different streams, in six different states of country.



Question 112

In which two states is the number of IT graduates, as a percentage of the total number of graduates in that state, most nearly the same?

Solution

Percentage of IT graduates in state A,

= $$\frac{31}{46 + 31 + 23 + 22} \times 100 = \frac{3100}{122} = 25.4$$%

Percentage of IT graduates in state B,

= $$\frac{38}{41 + 38 + 28 + 28} \times 100 = \frac{38}{135} = 28.14$$%

Percentage of IT graduates in state C,

= $$\frac{22}{62 + 34 + 26 + 23} \times 100 = \frac{22}{145} = 15.17$$%

Percentage of IT graduates in state D,

= $$\frac{18}{59 + 45 + 31 + 18} \times 100 = \frac{18}{153} = 11.76$$%

Percentage of IT graduates in state E,

= $$\frac{27}{38 + 28 + 24 + 12} \times 100 = \frac{27}{102} = 26.47$$%

Percentage of IT graduates in state F,

= $$\frac{16}{54 + 25 + 16 + 11} \times 100 = \frac{16}{106} = 15.09$$%

$$\therefore$$ Percentage of IT graduates in C and F is mostly same.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.
