1.
Answer (B): The differences between the
percentages of candidates qualified to appeared for the give pairs of years
are:
For 1994 and 1995 = 50 – 30 = 20.
For 1998 and 1999 = 80 – 80 = 0.
For 1994 and 1997 = 50 – 30 = 20.
For 1997 and 1998 = 80 – 50 = 30.
For 1999 and 2000 = 80 – 60 = 20.
Thus, the maximum difference is
between the years 1997 and 1998.
2.
The graph gives the data for the
percentage of candidates qualified to appeared and unless the absolute values
of number of candidates qualified or candidates appeared is know we cannot
compare the absolute values for any two years. Hence, the data is inadequate to
solve this question.
3.
The number of candidates appeared in
1998 be x.
Then, 80% of x = 21200
è x = (21200 *100)/(80) = 26500( Required number)
4.
The total number of candidates
qualified in 1996 and 1997 together, cannot be determined until we know at
least, the number of candidates appeared in any one of the two years 1996 or
1997 or the percentage of candidates qualified to appeared in 1996 and 1997
together. Hence, the data is inadequate.
5.
(C)
The number of candidates qualified in
1999 = (80% of 26500) = 21200.
Number of candidates qualified in 2000
= ( 33500 – 21200 ) = 12300.
Let the number of candidates appeared
in 2000 be x.
Then, 60% of x = 12300
x = ( 12300 x 100)/(60) =
20500.
Required number = (17% of
27300) + (14% of 24700)
= 4641 + 3458
= 8099
Required ratio =(21% of
24700)/ (14% of 27300)
=(21 x 24700)/(14 x 27300)
= 19/14
Students of institute M at
graduate level= 17% of 27300 = 4641.
Students of institute S at
graduate level = 14% of 27300 = 3822.
Total number of students
at graduate in institutes M and S = (4641 + 3822)
= 8463.
