Answer & Explanation

1. 2;

Female population below poverty line = 18 million

5 : 6 = x : 18

x = 15

Total population (below poverty line) = 15+18 = 33mn

Since 20% population in up is below poverty line

Therefore 80% population will be above poverty line

20 : 40 = 33 : y (Male population above poverty line)

1 : 4 = 33 : y y = 132

Male population above poverty line

= (132 * 3)/10 = 39.6 million

2. 3;

Total population (below poverty line)

= 20 × 35% = 7 million

Female below poverty line = 7/7 * 3 = 3 million

3. 3;

Since 7 ratio = 21

1 ratio = 3

Total ( 7 + 8) × 3 = 45 million

60 % = 45

1 = 45/60 * 10 million

4. 3;

50 : 27
