Answer & Explanation

**1. (c)**

**The number of students decreased from 2450 to 2000 in Agriculture.**

**2. (d)**

**Number of students studying Pharmacy in 2001 = 2100**

**Number of students studying Pharmacy in 2002 = 3600**

**Required ratio = 2100 : 3600 = 7 : 12**

**3. (d)**

**Difference = 7600 – 6300 = 1300**

**Required percentage increase =1300/6300*100= 20.63 = 20%**

**4. (b)**

**Total number of students in Arts and Commerce faculties in 2001**

**= 4200 + 7700 = 11900**

**Total number of students in Arts and Commerce faculties in 2002 = 4400 + 9600 = 14000**

**Required percentage =11900/14000*100= 85%**
