Answer & Explanation

1.1

Population of Shimla in 2001 = 1.5 * 100/110 = 1.36 Lakhs

2.3

Population of Nainital in 2001 = 1.36 * 100/92 = 1.48

Average = (1.36+1.50+3+4+1.48+1.36)/6=12.7/6=2.11 Lakhs

3.3

4.5

Population of Shimla in 2005 = 1.5* (110/100)*(110/100)*(110/100)=1.99=2 Lakhs

5.4

Required % = (4-1.36)/4*100=(2.64/4)*100=66%
