A. 9:11             B. 14:17           C. 6:11             D. 9:17

Explanation - Required percentage= % =  $9×57008×8550×100$ % = 75%

Explanation - The percentage of candidates passed to candidates enrolled can be determined for each institute as under:

P =   %  = 54.55%

Q =  % = 75.56%

R =  % = 86.67%

S = % = 62.75%

T = % = 75%

V=  % = 83.33%

X= % = 50%

Highest of these is 86.67% corresponding to institute R.

Explanation - Required difference = [(16% + 18%) of 5700] - [(8% + 10%) of 8550]

= [(34% of 5700) - (18% of 8550)]

= (1938 - 1539)

= 399

Explanation - Candidates passed from institutes Q and R together    =  [(13% + 17%) of 5700] = 30% of 57000.

Candidates enrolled from institutes Q and R together   = [(15% + 10%) of 8550] = 25% of 8550.

1. 20%           2. 220%         3. 120%         4. 80%            5. 180%

4. If the price of Mango is Rs.30 per kg, Apple Rs. 40 per kg, orange Rs.20 per kg, Other fruits Rs.15 per kg and Guava Rs. 18 per kg for both Shop A and B, then what is the difference between the cost of all fruits at Shop A and that at Shop B ?

1. Rs.7200     2. Rs.3500     3. Rs. 6400     4. Rs.5100     5. Rs.4600

5. The quantity of Orange at Shop A is what percent more than that of Apple at Shop B ?

1. 161.52%     2. 195.5%     3. 182%         4. 190%         5. 171.42%

Explanation :  Quantity of Guava at Shop A = $1200×10100$ = 120 kg

Quantity of Guava at Shop B = $1000×16100$= 160 kg

Therefore, Required difference = 160 - 120 = 40 kg

Explanation : Cost of Mango at Shop A = $30×1200×24100$= Rs. 8640

Cost of Apple = $40×1200×16100$ = Rs. 7680

Cost of Orange = $20×1200×20100$ = Rs.4800

Therefore, Required Ratio = 8640 : 6780 : 4800  = 9 : 8 : 5

Explanation : Quantity of Mango at Shop B = $1000×24100$ = 240 kg

Quantity of Mango at Shop A =$1200×24100$ = 288 kg

Therefore, Req % = $288×100240$ = 120% of the quantity of Mango at Shop A

Explanation : Cost of total fruits at Shop A = Cost of Mango + Cost of Apple + Cost of Guava + Cost of orange + Cost of other fruits

=

= Rs. 28680

Cost of Total Fruits at Shop B

=

= 7200 + 5600 + 2880 + 4000 + 3900

= Rs. 23580

Therefore, Req.difference = 28680 - 23580 = Rs.5100

Explanation: Quantity of Orange at Shop A = $1200×20100$ = 240 kg

Quantity of Apple at Shop B =$1000×14100$ = 140 kg

Therefore, Req % = $240×100140$ = 171.42% more than the quantity of Apple at Shop B.

1. 67%             2. 84%             3. 75%             4. 77%             5. 80%

Explanation : Expenditure of Company B = 60 lakh

Income of Company B = $60×180100$= 108 lakh = 1 crore 8 lakh

Income of Company A  = $10800000×45$ = Rs. 8640000

Therefore, Required differeence = 10800000 - 8640000 = Rs.2160000

Explanation :  Total expenditure on the employees of company A = $5000000×28100$ = Rs.1400000

Average Salary of the employees  = $1400000100$ = Rs.14000

= $5000000×14100$$6000000×6100$

= 700000 : 3600000  = 35 : 18

Explanation : Difference = $6000000×34100-5000000×28100$

= 2040000 - 1400000 = Rs.640000

Explanation :  Expenditure on Machine and Electricity of Company B = $6000000×18100$ = Rs.1080000 = 10.8 lakh

Expenditure on Machine and Electricity of Company A = $5000000×12100$ = Rs.600000 = 6 lakh

Therefore, Required % = $1080000-600000600000×100$  % = $4860×100$% = 80%

Hence expenditure of Company B is 80% more than Company A.
