Solution:
1). Total number of female readers of newspaper Economic Times in the year 2004
= 44000 × 54 / 100 = 23760

2). Difference = 56000 × (57 – 43) / 100
= 560 × 14 = 7840

3). Required ratio = 48000 × 55 / 100 ÷ 45000 × 56 / 100
= 48 × 55 / 45 × 56 = 66 : 63 = 22 : 21

4). Average number of male readers of newspaper Economic times
= 1000 / 5 × 100    × (42 × 49 + 64 × 55 + 54 × 52 + 44 × 46 + 45 × 44)
= 2 × (2058 + 3520 + 2808 + 2024 + 1980)
= 2 × 12390 = 24780

5). Total number f male readers of newspaper The Hindu in the year 2002
= 60000 × 37 / 100 = 22200
Total number f male readers of newspaper Economic Times in the year 2002
= 64000 × 55 / 100 = 35200
Required % = 22200 / 35200 × 100 = 63.068 = 63%

6). Productivity = Total Production / Area of agricultural land
Productivity of Tamil Nadu = (35 + 30 + 25) × 1000 / 200000 × 30 / 100
= 90000 / 60000 = 1.5 tonnes per km sq
Productivity of Kerala = (30 + 32.5 + 27.5) × 1000 / 200000 × 25 / 100
= 90000 / 50000 = 1.8 tonnes per km sq
Productivity of Karnataka = (22.5 + 25 + 27.5) × 1000 / 200000 × 20 / 100
= 75000 / 40000 = 1.875 tonnes per km sq
Productivity of Andra Pradesh = (22.5 + 15 + 10) × 1000 / 200000 × 5 / 100
= 47.5 × 1000 / 10000 = 4.75 tonnes per sq km
Productivity of Telangana = (25 + 35 + 30) × 1000 / 200000 × 8 / 100
= 90000 / 16000 = 5.625 tonnes per km sq
Productivity of West Bengal = (40 + 30 + 35) × 1000 / 200000 × 12 / 100
= 1050000 / 24000 = 4.375 tonnes per km sq
Productivity of Telangana is the maximum

7). Production of West Bengal is maximum = 105000 tonnes

8). Production of Potato in West Bengal = 40000 tonnes
Production of Onion in Andra Pradesh = 10000 tonnes
Required% = 40000 – 10000 / 10000 × 100% = 300%

9). The ratio of production of Tomato in Karnataka to the production of Potato in Telangana
= 25000 tonnes : 25000 tonnes  = 1 : 1

10). Income of Kerala from export of 40% of Tomato at the rate of 30 per kg
= 32500 × 40 / 100 × 1000 × 30 = 39 crore
Income of Tamil Nadu from export of 30% of Tomato at the rate of 32 per kg
= 30000 × 30 / 100 × 1000 × 32 = 28.8 crore
Required ratio = 39 : 28.8 = 390 : 288
= 65 : 48.
