**1)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Sudha’s age is 38, which is between 30 and 40, and is hence eligible for the job. She has an experience of 12 years in advances section, hence clearing the cutoff. She has scored only 40% in Interview, which is less than the cutoff. Hence Sudha must not be selected.

Amit’s age is between 30 and 40. He has scored 65% in B.Sc, 55% in group discussion and 50% in the interview and also has 11 years of experience, thereby clearing all the cutoffs. Hence he has to be selected.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The number of students from State B who cleared the exam in 2004 is 51%*1.04*100000 = 53040

The number of students from State CÂ who cleared the exam in 2004 is 32%*1.11*100000 = 35520

Hence, the ratio is 221:148

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

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

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

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

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

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

**7)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Total number of employees promoted = 1200

Total number of employees working = 3600

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

**8)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

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%

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

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

**10)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

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

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

**13)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

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
