Answer & Explanation

1. (5) Let the numerator and denominator be 2x and 5x. Now
(2x + 4)/10 = 1/3
X = 3.
Required sum = 2x + 5x = 7x = 21
2. (1) Required percentage = (750000 – 700000)/700000 * 100 = 7.14%
3. (3)  Number of books to be removed = 19 5 +1  = 96
4. (2) Number of arrangements = 3! *  6! = 4320
5. (3) Total score of students = 3 * 90 + 9 * 80 + 4 * 70 + 4 * 60 = 1510
Required average = 1510/20  =  75.5
Solutions (6-10)
Profession Male Female Total
Lawyers 2394 1596 3990
Teachers 630 2520 3150
Architects 1386 924 2310
Engineers 1512 2268 3780
Designers 2184 1176 3360
Doctors 3528 882 4410
Total 11634 9366 21000
6. (1) Required ratio = (60% of 11) : (20% of 15) = 11 : 5
7. (1)  Required percentage = 20% of 21 = 4.2
8. (2) Required difference = 11634 – 9366 = 2268
9. (3) Required percentage =  19/21 * 100 = 90.4%
10. (5) Required ratio = (1512 + 2184) : 9366 = 88 : 223

Answer & Explanation

1. (5): Victims should be shifted to the safer places. Secondly, affected State should ask for more financial help from Central Government to accelerate the relief operation.

2. (2): Valuable suggestions from the retired professors will be helpful for restructuring of an organisation. Hence, management should involve such experienced people. Seeking permission from the employees is not the right course of action.
