2. d;Reqd % = (102 / 1500) ×100 = 6.8% » 7%

3. e;

4.d;Total number of females working a level I and V together = 182 + 102 = 284

5. c;Reqd ratio = 170 / 147 = 170: 147

Ina team there are 240 members (males and females). Two-thirds of them are males .Fifteen per cent of males are graduates. Remaining males are non-graduates.Three-fourths of the females are graduates. Remaining females arenon-graduates.

(b) 8:1

(c) 8:3

(d) 5:2

(e) 7:2

Total number of members (males + females) = 240

Number of males = 240 × (2 / 3) = 160

Number of males who are graduates = 160 × (15 / 100) = 240

Number of males who are non graduates= 160 – 24 = 136

Number of females = 240 – 160 = 80

Now the number of females who are graduates = 80 ×(3 / 4)= 60

Number of females who are non graduates= 80 – 60 = 20

6.c; Difference = 24 – 20 = 4

7. e; Required sum = 60 + 136 = 196
