Detailed Solutions:
1). c) Required average = (7·0 + 2·0 + 4·5 + 6·2)/4 = 19.7/4 = 4·92 per lac population
Therefore, Per-hundred population = (4.92 x 100)/100000 = 0.00492
2). c) The required difference = 9200 – 138 = 9062
3). b) Number of the incidence of crimes in UP= 8800 + 9200 + 7800= 25800
Number of the incidence of crimes in MP= 2650 + 892 + 582= 4124
Number of the incidence of crimes in Delhi= 500 + 480 + 138= 1118
Number of the incidence of crimes in Bihar= 7800 + 8200 + 2850= 18850
Clearly the maximum number of incidence of the crimes has occurred in UP, i.e., 25800.
4). c) The required % difference = (8800 – 7800)/7800 x 100 = 13% app.
