Boys : Girls = 7 : 5
No. of boys = 7/12 * 1560 = 910
No. of girls = 650
No. of boys enrolled in only Dancing = 910/5 = 182
No. of girls in only Painting = 650/5 = 130
No. of boys in only singing = 91
No. of girls in both singing and dancing = 24/100 * 650 = 156
No. of girls in only Singing = 91*2 = 182
No. of boys in all three = 1/13 * 910 = 70
No. of girls in both dancing and painting = 8/100 * 650 = 52
No. of girls in only dancing = 650/10 = 65
So, no. of boys in both dancing and painting = 2*52 = 104
No. of girls in all three = 65

No. of boys in both singing and dancing = 156/2 = 78
No. of boys in only painting = 385

Total number of girls in Singing = 403
Required ratio = 403/1560 = 26% approximately

Boys : Girls = 7 : 5
No. of boys = 7/12 * 1560 = 910
No. of girls = 650
No. of boys enrolled in only Dancing = 910/5 = 182
No. of girls in only Painting = 650/5 = 130
No. of boys in only singing = 91
No. of girls in both singing and dancing = 24/100 * 650 = 156
No. of girls in only Singing = 91*2 = 182
No. of boys in all three = 1/13 * 910 = 70
No. of girls in both dancing and painting = 8/100 * 650 = 52
No. of girls in only dancing = 650/10 = 65
So, no. of boys in both dancing and painting = 2*52 = 104
No. of girls in all three = 65

No. of boys in both singing and dancing = 156/2 = 78
No. of boys in only painting = 385

â€‹Total number of boys enrolled in Dancing = 434

Percent rise in profit of company M in 2008 = 20%

Percent rise in profit of company M in 2009 = 30%

Percentage increase = (30-20)/20 * 100 = 50%

The graphs show the percentage rise in profits. So, the profits for the two companies are increasing from 2004 to 2009. So, the highest profit by both the companies is made in 2009 and the least profit in 2004.

Consider statement A: M made the highest profit in 2009. This statement is true.

Consider statement B: L made the least profit in 2005. This statement is false.

So, the answer is option a) (Since option e) is not true anymore).

The average percentage rise in profits over all the years for company L is average of the 6 years values ie. sum of each years value divided by 6 = 150/6 = 25%.

Let the profit in 2006 be x.

Profit in 2007 = 5x/4

Profit in 2008 = 6/5 * 5x/4 = 3x/2 = 3.63 lakh

=> x = 1.21*2 = 2.42 lakh

Profit in 2006 = 1.84 * 125/100 = 1.84*5/4 = 0.46*5 = 2.3 lakh

The number of employees promoted in HR = 11% of 1200 = 132

Total number of employees in HR = 12% of 3600 = 432

=> percentage of employees promoted in HR = $\frac{132}{432}*100$ = 30.56%

Total number of employees promoted = 1200

Total number of employees working = 3600

Percentage of employees promoted = $\frac{1200}{3600}*100$ = 33 (approx)

Number of employees in accounts department = 20% of 3600 = 720
Number of male employees in accounts department = 5% of 2040 = 102
Number of female employees in accounts department = 720 – 102 = 618

Total number of employees in production and marketing = 53% of 3600 = 1908

Total number of male employees in production and marketing = 65% of 2040 = 1326

Total number of female employees in production and marketing = 1908 – 1326 =582

Number of IT employees = 20% of 2040 = 408

Number of IT employees promoted = 26% of 1200 = 312

Half of these are males => number of male IT employees promoted = 156

=> Percentage of male IT employees promoted = $\frac{156}{408}*100$ = 38%

The number of students who appeared for the exam from State D in 2007 is 1.88*100000 = 188000

The number of students who appeared for the exam from State D in 2008Â is 1.83*100000 = 183000

The number of students who appeared forÂ the exam from State D in 2009Â is 2.01*100000 = 201000

Hence, the required average is 190,666.66

The number of students who passed the exam from State E in 2006 is 49%*1.42*100000 = 69,580

The number of students who passed the exam from State FÂ in 2006 is 26%*1.58*100000 = 41,080

Hence, the total is 110,660

The percentage of students from State A who passed the exam in 2007 is 41%

So, the percentage of students from State A who failed the exam in 2007 is 59%

Hence, the number of students who failed the exam in 2007 is 59%*1.98*100000= 116820

The number of students who cleared the exam in 2004 was 24%*1.32*100000 = 31680

The number of students who cleared the exam in 2005 was 49%*1.15*100000 = 56350

The number of students who cleared the exam in 2006 was 24%*1.32*100000 = 68600

The number of students who cleared the exam in 2007 was 46%*1.88*100000 = 86480

The number of students who cleared the exam in 2008 was 60%*1.83*100000 = 109800

The number of students who cleared the exam in 2009 was 56%*2.01*100000 = 112560

Hence, the year with the highest number of successful candidates from Section D is 2009
