Q4. The total number of candidates qualified in 2008 and 2009 together was 6600 and the number of candidates appeared in 2008 was 5100. What was the number of candidates appeared in 2009?
(1) 4000 (2) 4850 (3) 4200
(4) 4150 (5) None of these
Answer & Explanation
- (4)
Required ratio = 50% of 2 : 60% of 3 = 5 : 9.
- (2)
Required number = 5800/0.8 = 7250
- (5)
Since we don’t know the number of candidates appeared in 2005 and 2006 individually, we cannot find the number of qualified candidates.
- (3)
Let the number of candidates appeared in 2009 was x. Then
80% of 5100 + 60% of x = 6600
x = 4200
