**1. ANSWER : D**

**Explanation - **Required difference

= (272 + 240 + 236 + 256 + 288) - (200 + 224 + 248 + 272 + 260)

= 88.

**2. ANSWER : B**

**Explanation - **Total number of Peons working in the Company in 1999

= (820 + 184 + 152 + 196 + 224) - (96 + 88 + 80 + 120)

= 1192.

**3. ANSWER : A**

**Explanation -** Number of Managers working in the Company:

In 1995 = 760.

In 2000 = (760 + 280 + 179 + 148 + 160 + 193) - (120 + 92 + 88 + 72 + 96)= 1252.

Therefore, Percentage increase in the number of Managers

=$\frac{\left(1252-760\right)}{760}\times 100$ %= 64.74%

Number of Technicians working in the Company:

In 1995 = 1200.

In 2000 = (1200 + 272 + 240 + 236 + 256 + 288) - (120 + 128 + 96 + 100 +112) = 1936.

Therefore, Percentage increase in the number of Technicians

= $\frac{\left(1936-1200\right)}{1200}\times 100$ % = 61.33%

Number of Operators working in the Company:

In 1995 = 880.

In 2000 = (880 + 256 + 240 + 208 + 192 + 248) - (104 + 120 + 100 + 112 + 144) = 1444.

Therefore, Percentage increase in the number of Operators

=$\frac{\left(1444-880\right)}{880}\times 100$ % = 64.09%

Number of Accountants working in the Company:

In 1995 = 1160.

In 2000 = (1160 + 200 + 224 + 248 + 272 + 260) - (100 + 104 + 96 + 88 + 92) = 1884.

Therefore, Percentage increase in the number of Accountants

=$\frac{\left(1884-1160\right)}{1160}\times 100$ % = 62.14%

Number of Peons working in the Company:

In 1995 = 820.

In 2000 = (820 + 184 + 152 + 196 + 224 + 200) - (96 + 88 + 80 + 120 + 104) = 1288.

Therefore, Percentage increase in the number of Peons

=$\frac{\left(1288-820\right)}{820}\times 100$ % = 57.07%

Clearly, the percentage increase is maximum in case of Managers.

**4. ANSWER : B**

**Explanation - ** Total number of employees of various categories working in the Company in 1997 are:

Managers = (760 + 280 + 179) - (120 + 92) = 1007.

Technicians = (1200 + 272 + 240) - (120 + 128) = 1464.

Operators = (880 + 256 + 240) - (104 + 120) = 1152.

Accountants = (1160 + 200 + 224) - (100 + 104) = 1380.

Peons = (820 + 184 + 152) - (96 + 88) = 972.

Therefore, Pooled average of all the five categories of employees working in the Company in 1997 = 1/5 x (1007 + 1464 + 1152 + 1380 + 972)

= 1/5 x (5975)

= 1195.

**5. ANSWER : D**

**Explanation - ** Total number of Operators who left the Company during 1995 - 2000

= (104 + 120 + 100 + 112 + 144)

= 580.

Total number of Operators who joined the Company during 1995 - 2000

= (880 + 256 + 240 + 208 + 192 + 248

= 2024.

Therefore, Required Percentage

= (580/2024)x100% = 28.66% ~= 29%.
