Answer & Explanation

**S1. Ans (d)**

**From the graph it can be seen that,**

**I/E > 1 is in 2 cases.**

**S2. Ans (d)**

**I/E = 0.7**

**E = 51.688/0.7 = 73.84**

**S3. Ans (b)**

**Required answer = 84 * 0.9 – 84 * 0.8 = 8.4**

**S4. Ans (b)**

**I(A)/E(A) = 1.2**

**I(B)/E(B) = 0.9**

**I(B)/I(A) = ¾ (as E(a) = E(B))**

**Required % = ¾ * 100 = 75%**

**S5. Ans (c)**

**I/E = 0.8**

**New ratio,**

**(I*200)/(E*300)=8/10**

**I/E=(8*3)/(10*2)=1.2**
