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

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.

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%

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
