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
