Solution:
1). Population of Karnataka in the year 2012 = 40 lakh
Number of males below poverty line in Karnataka in the year 2012
= 40 × 45/100 × 10/15 = 12 lakh
Population of Karnataka in 2014 = 40 + 40 × 21/100 = 48.4 lakh
Number of males below poverty line in Karnataka in 2014
= 48.4 × 42/100 × 10/14 = 14.52 lakh
Required % increase = (14.52 - 1b)/12 × 100 = 2.52/12 × 100 = 21%

2). Total population in any year is not given, so we cannot determine the population of all the states in 2015.

3). The number of females below poverty line, in Kerala in the year 2015
= 55 × 38/100 × 10.9/20.9
= 20.9 × 10.9/20.9 = 10.90 lakh
Again, In Karnataka in the year 2015 = 62 × 40/10 × 10/20 = 12.4 lakh.
Required ratio =109/124 = 109 : 124

4). Population of Tamil Nadu in the year 2013 = 55 lakh
Population of Tamil Nadu in the year 2012 = 50 lakh
The number of females below poverty line in Tamil Nadu in the year 2012
= 50 × 24/100 × 5/15 = 4 lakh

5). Population of A below poverty line in the year 2015
= 60 × 32/100 = 19.2 lakh
Population of B below poverty line in the year 2015
= 55 × 38/100 = 20.9 lakh
Population of C below poverty line in the year 2015
= 62 × 40/100 = 24.8 lakh
Total population below poverty line in the year 2015 = 19.2 + 20.9 + 24.8 = 64.9 lakh

6). ? = 6000 – 225 / 15    - 70000 = 90000 – 70000 = 20000

7). ? = 36 – 3.6 = 32.41

8). 3   1/7 + 4  2/5   -   ? = -2   3/5
22/7 + 22/5 + 13/5 = 355/35 = 71/7 = 10   1/7

9).  ? = 0.00009 / 0.003 × 0.0003 = 100

10). 5287 – 176.22 – 78.584 = 5032.196
