Two fifth of the total number of passengers is from South Africa. 6% of the total number of passengers is from Madagascar. Remaining number of passengers is from India. 25% of the number of passengers from Britain are females. Half the number of passengers from South Africa are males. There is no female passengers from Madagascar. Two third of the number of passengers from India are females.

Answers:

Total number of passengers = 1200

Passengers from Britain = 1200 * 18/100 = 216
Females = 216 * 25/100 = 54
Males = 216 – 54 = 162

Passengers from South Africa = 1200 * 2/5 = 480
Males = 1/2 * 480
Females = 240
Passengers from Madagascar = 1200 * 6/100 = 72
Males = 72
Females = 0

Passengers from India = (1200 – 216 – 480 – 72) = 432
Females = 2/3 * 432 = 288
Males = 432 – 288 = 144

1. 2
Required ratio = 72 : 240 : 432 = 3 : 10 : 18

2. 1; Required percentage = 240/216 * 100 = 111.11% = 111%

3. 1;
Required average = (162 + 240 + 72 + 144)/4 = 618/4 = 154.5

4. 4
Required difference = India – Madagascar = 144 – 72 = 72

5. 5
Required total number = 162 + 288 = 450

6. 2
Req. Probability = 4C3/9C3 = 4/84 = 1/21

7. 2
Req. Probability = (3C2 * 6C2)/9C4 = 5/14

8. 4
Req. Probability = 1 - 5C2/9C2 = 1 - 10/36 = 13/18

9. 3
Req. Probability = 1 - 3C3/9C3 = 1 - 1/84 = 83/84

10. 4
Req. Probability = 5C3/9C3 = 10/84 = 5/42
