1.    Answer  (4) In Kolkata No. of officers =14900
No. of Specialist officer
= 1200
Req. aaprox. Percentage: =
1200×100/15000 = 8 (approx)

2.    Answer (3) Total No. of officers = 72,760
Total No. of Clerks =
105,450
Req. difference = 32,690
3.    Answer (2) In Chennai No. of Clerks = 11000
No. of officers = 9000
Req Percentage = 11000 –
9000/9000 x 100 = 22.2 = 22

4.    Answer (3) 5000 + 300% of 5000 = 20,000

Required difference =
(128000 – 107000) = 21000.

7.    Answer  (3) : From the line-graph it is clear that the
productions of Company X in the years 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 are
119000, 99000, 141000, 78000, 120000 and 159000 and those of Company Y are
139000, 120000,100000, 128000, 107000 and 148000 respectively.
Total production of
Company X from 1997 to 2002
= 119000 + 99000 + 141000
+ 78000 + 120000 + 159000 = 716000.
and total production of
Company Y from 1997 to 2002
= 139000 + 120000 + 100000
+ 128000 + 107000 + 148000
= 742000.
Difference = (742000 –
716000) = 26000.

Average number of vehicles
manufactured by Company X =1/6 *(119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000
=119333.

The difference between the
productions of Companies X and Y in various years is:
For 1997 (139000 – 119000)
= 20000.
For 1998 (120000 – 99000)
= 21000.
For 1999 (141000 – 100000)
= 41000.
For 2000 (128000 – 78000)
= 50000.
For 2001 (120000 – 107000)
= 13000.
For 2002 (159000 – 148000)
= 11000.
Clearly, maximum
difference was in 2000
