Solution:

1). Compare only percentage; don’t find the numbers.
Required ratio = (21 + 3) : (32 + 11) = 34 : 43

2). Here, no need to go in detail. As we have to find the ratio of two percentages just compare directly for the respective sports.
Answer is Volleyball, as 11 / 22 is minimum ratio.

3). Total no. females = [ (3 × 48) / (5 + 3 = 8)] = 18 lakh
Required diff = (22% - 12%) of 18 lakh = 1.8 lakh

4). The population interested in cricket = [ 4800000 × (32 / 100) = 1536000
Similarly, the population interested in football, badminton, tennis, volleyball and hockey are 720000, 384000, 624000, 528000 and 1008000 respectively.   …(i)
Now, the no. of females interested n cricket = [ 18000000 × (19 / 100)] = 342000
Similarly, the no. of females interested in football, badminton, tennis, volleyball and hockey are 144000, 216000, 414000, 396000, and 288000 respectively… (ii)
Now, the difference of respective nos. of (i) and (ii) will give the no. of males interested in respective sports. We can see that for Badminton, Tennis and volleyball the no.of males interested is less than that of females. [Note: it is mere chance that in these three sports the percentage given in pie charts II is more than that of pie charts I. It means that you need to do actual calculation. You can check for volleyball = 12% in pie chart II]

5). No.of males interested in Badminton and Football together
= (384000 – 216000) + (720000 – 144000)
= (168000 + 576000) = 744000
No.of females interested in Hockey and Tennis = 414000 + 288000 = 702000
Required ratio = (744000 : 702000) = 124 : 117

6). Expenditure of the company = 120 – 70 = 50cr
% profit = (70 / 50) × 100 = 140%

7). Reqd ratio = (85 + 30) : 85 = 115 : 85 = 23 : 17

8). Required average = (40 + 55 + 50 + 70 + 30 + 75) / 6 = 320 / 6 = 53 cr

9). Reqd exp = 95 cr – 40 cr = 55 cr = 55 × 107
