**1) Answer (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 C who cleared the exam in 2004 is 32%*1.11*100000 = 35520

Hence, the ratio is 221:148

**2) Answer (C)**

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.

**3) Answer (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

**4) Answer (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 F in 2006 is 26%*1.58*100000 = 41,080

Hence, the total is 110,660

**5) Answer (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 2008 is 1.83*100000 = 183000

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

Hence, the required average is 190,666.66

**6) Answer (B)**

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

**7) Answer (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

**8) Answer (E)**

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%.

**9) Answer (A)**

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).

**10) Answer (C)**

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%
