**Instructions**

Study the information given below and answer the given questions.

**Note:
**i) Total number of employees in the company = Number of developers in the company + Number of non developers in the company.

ii) Number of developers in the company = Number of male developers in the company + Number of female developers in the company.

iii) Number of non developers in the company = Number of male non developers in the company + Number of female non developers in the company.

iv) Number of male developers in the company = Number of male developers who participated in the event + Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event.

v) Number of female non developers in the company = Number of female non developers who participated in the event + Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event.

vi) Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event is 28.57% less than the number of female non developers who participated in the event.

vii) Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

viii) The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

**Question 4:Â **Out of the female non developers who participated in the event $\frac{2}{7}$th participated in singing, $\frac{1}{7}$th participated in dancing and the remaining participated in games then what is the number of female non developers who participated in games?

a)Â 400

b)Â 1600

c)Â 800

d)Â 1200

e)Â None of the above

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Number of male developers in the company = 8250

Number of male developers who participated in the event = 5250

Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 8250 – 5250

= 3000

The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

Number of female non developers who participated in the event = $\frac{14}{15}\times$3000

= 2800

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event is 28.57% less than the number of female non developers who participated in the event.

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 2800 – $\frac{2}{7}\times$2800

= 2800 – 800

= 2000

Number of female non developers in the company(B) = 2800 + 2000 = 4800

Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

Number of female developers in the company = 4800 + 1950

= 6750

Number of developers in the company = Number of male developers + Number of female developers

= 8250 + 6750

= 15000

60% of A = 15000

A = 25000

Total number of employees in the company(A) = 25000

Number of non developers in the company = 40% of A

= 40% of 25000

= 10000

Number of male non developers in the company = Number of non developers in the company – Number of female non developers in the company

= 10000 – 4800

= 5200

Out of the female non developers who participated in the event $\frac{2}{7}$th participated in singing, $\frac{1}{7}$th participated in dancing and the remaining participated in games.

Number of female non developers who participated in games = (1-$\frac{2}{7}$-$\frac{1}{7}$) x 2800

= $\frac{4}{7}$ x 2800

= 1600

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Question 5:Â **If the number of female developers who participated in the event is 1350 more than the number of female developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event then what is the ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event respectively?

a)Â 10 : 9

b)Â 9 : 8

c)Â 8 : 9

d)Â 9 : 10

e)Â None of the above

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

Number of male developers in the company = 8250

Number of male developers who participated in the event = 5250

Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 8250 – 5250

= 3000

The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

Number of female non developers who participated in the event = $\frac{14}{15}\times$3000

= 2800

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event is 28.57% less than the number of female non developers who participated in the event.

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 2800 – $\frac{2}{7}\times$2800

= 2800 – 800

= 2000

Number of female non developers in the company(B) = 2800 + 2000 = 4800

Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

Number of female developers in the company = 4800 + 1950

= 6750

Number of developers in the company = Number of male developers + Number of female developers

= 8250 + 6750

= 15000

60% of A = 15000

A = 25000

Total number of employees in the company(A) = 25000

Number of non developers in the company = 40% of A

= 40% of 25000

= 10000

Number of male non developers in the company = Number of non developers in the company – Number of female non developers in the company

= 10000 – 4800

= 5200

The number of female developers who participated in the event is 1350 more than the number of female developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event.

Let the number of female developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = p

Number of female developers who participated in the event = p + 1350

Number of female developers = 6750

p + 1350 + p = 6750

2p = 5400

p = 2700

Number of female developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = p = 2700

Required ratio = 3000 : 2700

= 10 : 9

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

**Question 6:Â **If 54.54% of the number of male developers are graduates then what is the number of male developers who are not graduates?

a)Â 4500

b)Â 3950

c)Â 3600

d)Â 3750

e)Â None of the above

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

Number of male developers in the company = 8250

Number of male developers who participated in the event = 5250

Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 8250 – 5250

= 3000

The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

Number of female non developers who participated in the event = $\frac{14}{15}\times$3000

= 2800

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event is 28.57% less than the number of female non developers who participated in the event.

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 2800 – $\frac{2}{7}\times$2800

= 2800 – 800

= 2000

Number of female non developers in the company(B) = 2800 + 2000 = 4800

Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

Number of female developers in the company = 4800 + 1950

= 6750

Number of developers in the company = Number of male developers + Number of female developers

= 8250 + 6750

= 15000

60% of A = 15000

A = 25000

Total number of employees in the company(A) = 25000

Number of non developers in the company = 40% of A

= 40% of 25000

= 10000

Number of male non developers in the company = Number of non developers in the company – Number of female non developers in the company

= 10000 – 4800

= 5200

54.54% of the number of male developers are graduates.

Number of male developers who are graduates = $\frac{6}{11}\times$8250

= 4500

Number of male developers who are not graduates = 8250 – 4500

= 3750

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 7:Â **The number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event is what percent of the number of non developers in the company?

a)Â 22%

b)Â 12%

c)Â 16%

d)Â 24%

e)Â None of the above

**7)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

Number of male developers who participated in the event = 5250

Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 8250 – 5250

= 3000

The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

Number of female non developers who participated in the event = $\frac{14}{15}\times$3000

= 2800

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 2800 – $\frac{2}{7}\times$2800

= 2800 – 800

= 2000

Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

Number of female developers in the company = 4800 + 1950

= 6750

= 8250 + 6750

= 15000

60% of A = 15000

A = 25000

Number of non developers in the company = 40% of A

= 40% of 25000

= 10000

Number of male non developers in the company = Number of non developers in the company – Number of female non developers in the company

= 10000 – 4800

= 5200

Required percentage = $\frac{2000}{10000}\times$100

= 20%

Hence, the correct answer is Option E

c)Â 30000

d)Â 25000

e)Â None of the above

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

Number of male developers who participated in the event = 5250

Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 8250 – 5250

= 3000

The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

Number of female non developers who participated in the event = $\frac{14}{15}\times$3000

= 2800

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 2800 – $\frac{2}{7}\times$2800

= 2800 – 800

= 2000

Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

Number of female developers in the company = 4800 + 1950

= 6750

= 8250 + 6750

= 15000

60% of A = 15000

A = 25000

Number of non developers in the company = 40% of A

= 40% of 25000

= 10000

Number of male non developers in the company = Number of non developers in the company – Number of female non developers in the company

= 10000 – 4800

= 5200

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 9:Â **What is the difference between the number of female developers and the number of male non developers?

a)Â 1650

b)Â 1550

c)Â 1750

d)Â 1950

e)Â None of the above

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Number of male developers who participated in the event = 5250

Number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 8250 – 5250

= 3000

The ratio of the number of male developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event and the number of female non developers who participated in the event is 15:14 respectively.

Number of female non developers who participated in the event = $\frac{14}{15}\times$3000

= 2800

Number of female non developers who didnâ€™t participate in the event = 2800 – $\frac{2}{7}\times$2800

= 2800 – 800

= 2000

Number of female developers in the company is 1950 more than the number of female non developers in the company.

Number of female developers in the company = 4800 + 1950

= 6750

= 8250 + 6750

= 15000

60% of A = 15000

A = 25000

Number of non developers in the company = 40% of A

= 40% of 25000

= 10000

Number of male non developers in the company = Number of non developers in the company – Number of female non developers in the company

= 10000 – 4800

= 5200

The difference between the number of female developers and the number of male non developers = 6750 – 5200

= 1550

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

**Instructions**

Six people A, B, C, D, E and F are working on six different posts namely CEO (Chief Executive Officer), GM (General Manager), DGM (Deputy General Manager), AGM (Assistant General Manager), CM (Chief Manager) and SM (Senior Manager) of an organization. Each of them likes different sweets namely Jalebi, Laddu, Ghewar, Peda, Barfi and Kheer. Each of them has a different lucky number from 1 to 9. CEO is the senior most position and SM is the junior most position in the organization. Lucky number of the one who likes Ghewar is one more than the lucky number of the one who likes Barfi. The one who likes Jalebi is senior to B. The difference between the lucky number of the one who likes Peda and the one who likes Kheer is three. The sum of the lucky numbers of C and D is the multiple of seven. The one who is on the post of CM does not like Laddu. More than two people are senior to E who does not like Kheer. D is not in the post of CEO. The lucky number of A is not three. The number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar is the same as the number of people senior to the one who likes Jalebi. Neither C nor B like Barfi. Lucky number of the one who is on the post of CEO is a square number. D is not junior to A. The number of people senior to E is one more than the number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar. The one who likes Laddu is junior to the one who likes Peda but senior to C who is not on the post of DGM. The sum of the lucky numbers of D and B is the multiple of five. Lucky number of the one who likes Jalebi is not an odd number.

c)Â Only (ii) and (iii)

d)Â Only (iii)

e)Â Only (ii)

**10)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

More than two people are senior to E who does not like Kheer. The number of people senior to E is one more than the number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar. The number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar is the same as the number of people senior to the one who likes Jalebi.

As per the above given conditions, there are three possible cases which are given below in Case(i), Case(ii) and Case(iii).

The one who likes Jalebi is senior to B.

In Case(iii), B is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

In Case(i), B is possible in two places which are given below in Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b).

The one who likes Laddu is junior to the one who likes Peda but senior to C who is not on the post of DGM. The one who is on the post of CM does not like Laddu.

In Case(i)(b), C is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

Neither C nor B like Barfi. D is not in the post of CEO. D is not junior to A.

In Case(i)(a), Barfi is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

Lucky number of the one who is on the post of CEO is a square number. The difference between the lucky number of the one who likes Peda and the one who likes Kheer is three.

So the lucky number of F can be 1, 4 and 9 which are given below in Case(ii)(a), Case(ii)(b) and Case(ii)(c).

The sum of the lucky numbers of D and B is the multiple of five.

In Case(ii)(a), B = 4, then D = 6.

In Case(ii)(b), when B = 1, then D = 9 and when B = 7, then D = 8.

In Case(ii)(c), B = 6, then D = 4.

In each case other values are not possible as per the given condition.

The sum of the lucky numbers of C and D is the multiple of seven.

In Case(ii)(a), D = 6, then C = 8.

In Case(ii)(b), when D = 9, then C = 5 and when D = 8, then C = 6.

In Case(ii)(c), D = 4, then C = 3.

In each case other values are not possible as per the given condition.

Lucky number of the one who likes Jalebi is not an odd number.

In Case(ii)(c), the above given condition is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

The lucky number of A is not three. Lucky number of the one who likes Ghewar is one more than the lucky number of the one who likes Barfi.

In Case(ii)(a), the above given condition is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

Therefore, we got the final arrangement which is given above.

Hence, option b is the correct answer.

**11)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

More than two people are senior to E who does not like Kheer. The number of people senior to E is one more than the number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar. The number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar is the same as the number of people senior to the one who likes Jalebi.

As per the above given conditions, there are three possible cases which are given below in Case(i), Case(ii) and Case(iii).

The one who likes Jalebi is senior to B.

In Case(iii), B is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

Neither C nor B like Barfi. D is not in the post of CEO. D is not junior to A.

In Case(i)(a), Barfi is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

Lucky number of the one who is on the post of CEO is a square number. The difference between the lucky number of the one who likes Peda and the one who likes Kheer is three.

So the lucky number of F can be 1, 4 and 9 which are given below in Case(ii)(a), Case(ii)(b) and Case(ii)(c).

The sum of the lucky numbers of D and B is the multiple of five.

In Case(ii)(a), B = 4, then D = 6.

In Case(ii)(b), when B = 1, then D = 9 and when B = 7, then D = 8.

In Case(ii)(c), B = 6, then D = 4.

In each case other values are not possible as per the given condition.

The sum of the lucky numbers of C and D is the multiple of seven.

In Case(ii)(a), D = 6, then C = 8.

In Case(ii)(b), when D = 9, then C = 5 and when D = 8, then C = 6.

In Case(ii)(c), D = 4, then C = 3.

In each case other values are not possible as per the given condition.

Lucky number of the one who likes Jalebi is not an odd number.

In Case(ii)(c), the above given condition is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

The lucky number of A is not three. Lucky number of the one who likes Ghewar is one more than the lucky number of the one who likes Barfi.

In Case(ii)(a), the above given condition is not possible. So this case is eliminated.

Therefore, we got the final arrangement which is given above.

According to the above arrangement, the number of people junior to the one who likes Kheer is one less than the number of people senior to the one whose lucky number is 8.

Hence, option b is the correct answer.

**Question 12:Â **The one whose lucky number is 3 is on which of the following posts?

a)Â GM

b)Â CM

c)Â SM

d)Â AGM

e)Â None

**12)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

**Solution:**

More than two people are senior to E who does not like Kheer. The number of people senior to E is one more than the number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar. The number of people junior to the one who likes Ghewar is the same as the number of people senior to the one who likes Jalebi.

As per the above given conditions, there are three possible cases which are given below in Case(i), Case(ii) and Case(iii).

The one who likes Jalebi is senior to B.

In Case(iii), B is not possible as per the above given condition. So this case is eliminated.

In Case(i), B is possible in two places which are given below in Case(i)(a) and Case(i)(b).

The one who likes Laddu is junior to the one who likes Peda but senior to C who is not on the post of DGM. The one who is on the post of CM does not like Laddu.
