Solutions:
1). Only for project A, the value of cost per room is less than half crore, whereas in other projects it is either more than or equal to half crore.
2). Total investments for all the projects
= 275 + 210 + 250 + 430 + 310 + 400 + 250 = `2125 cr
Investments on those projects which are completed in 1998
= 275 + 430 + 400 = `1105 cr
Required% = 1105 / 2125 × 100 = 52%
3). Total no. of rooms over the three-year period
= 600 + 320 + 250 + 400 + 520 + 450 + 500 = 3040
Required average no. of rooms per crore of rupees = 3040 / 2125 = 1.4
4). When the interest rate is 10% p.a. at SI, then the total cost in 2000
= 330 + 231 + 275 + 516 +310 + 480 + 250 = `2392 cr
Avg. cost per room = 2932 / 3040 = 0.80
5). Investments in 1997 on project E
= 310 × 10 / 11 × 10 / 11 × 10 / 11 = 235 cr
6). Required ratio = 8 + 9 / 15 + 18 = 17 : 33
7). Here, do not find the ratio of the no. of qualified candidates to that of the appeared. Simply check the ratio of % qualified candidates with respect to the appeared is the least for which state. Answer = V.
8). Required difference = (21 - 13) % of 9000 = 720
