In 2002, the number of females selected for the course as a proportion of the number of females who bought application forms was 48/19236 and for males was 171/61205. So rate for males was higher than that of female. Hence option A is false.

In 2002, among those called for interview, the success rate for females was 48/138 and for males 171/684. So the rate was higher for females .Both are false. Â Hence option D.

Since tara received the same grade in exactly 3 subjects , only one possibility is getting B in 3 subjects and F in other 2. So in operation her grade would be either B or F.Among options only manab has B in operations . hence option D.

We have ,

There is a difference of 5 million between Firm A and Firm D and also between Firm C and Firm B .
Now if Profitable Ltd. has the lowest share in MP market then Firm B is profitable ltd. Honest ltd. would be any firm out of A and D. So now if statement 1 is true then statement 2 is false as honest will have more revenue than profitable. hence option c.

If the costs per tonne of transport by ship, air and road are represented by P, Q and R respectively.

P = 10/9

Q = 7/11

R = 6/22

We can see that P>Q and Q>R Â and P>R. Hence option C.

Production rate in 1990 = 15.6 ;Â Production rate in 1991Â = 15.7 ;Â Production rate in 1992Â = 15.85 ;Â Production rate in 1993Â = 15.46. So clearly we can see that production rate would be lowest in the year 1993. Hence option B.

Profitability = $\frac{Net_Income_After_Taxes}{Expenses}$

In 2000, SpainÂ had the best profitability of 225/43.

Hence option B.

High quality crop 2 is produced by R5, R8 and R12.

None of these regions produce crop 3.

Hence, option D is true.

None of the other options are true.
