E/I = 2/1
E/2 = 2/I
E = 4 Crore

Exp of Company B in the year 1991
E/I = 3/1
E/3 = 3/1
E = 9 Crore
Req Ratio 4 : 9

4. (4) Req. Percentage = (3 – 2.5)/2.5 * 100 = 20%

5. (5) Data Inadequate

Solutions (6-10)

Total Number of Employees in company A = x * 20/100 = 880 = 4400
Total Number of Employees in company B = x * 24/100 = 864 = 3600

6. (3)
Total number of Employees of Software Developers in company A = 26/100 * 4400 = 1144
Total number of Employees of Software Developers in company B = 28/100 * 3600 = 1008
Required Difference = 1144 – 1008 = 136

7. (2)

8. (2) Ratio of the number of Accountants of company A to B =  528 : 396 = 4:3

9. (3) Required Percentage = (864 – 324)/324 * 100 = 166%

Solutions (11-15)

11. (3)
Total number of Girls who appeared in 2007 = 1000/100 * 36 = 360
Total number of Girls who passed in 2007 = 500/100 * 55 = 275
Total number of Girls who failed = 360 – 275 = 85

12. (1)
Total number of girls passed in 2009 = 288
Total number of boys failed in 2009 = 770 – 512 = 258
Total sum = 288 + 258 = 546

13. (5)
Total number of boys who appeared in all 5 years = 2925
Total number of boys who passed in all 5 years = 1739
Total difference = 2925 – 1739 = 1186

14. (3)
Required Ratio = 770 : 330 = 7:3

15. (2)
Number of boys passed in 2005 = 480
Number of girls appeared in 2006 = 400
Req % = (480 – 400)/400 * 100 = 20%
