Solution:

1). The number of promotee Officer Scale II
= 15/100 × 8000 × 60/100 = 720
The number of direct-recruit Officer Scale II
= 15/100 × 8000 × 40/100 = 480
Required% = 720/480 × 100 = 150%

2). The number of direct-recruit Clerk
= 1/5 × 8000 × 3/5 = 960

3). Required number
= ¼ × 8000 × 3/10 + 15/100 × 8000 × 2/5 + 1/5 × 8000 × 3/5
= 2040

4). Required number
= 30/100 × 8000 × 40/100 + 20/100 × 8000 × 40/100
= 960 + 640 = 1600

5). Number of Probationary Officers = 1/4 × 8000 = 2000
Required difference = 7/10 × 2000 – 3/10 × 2000 = 1400 - 600 = 800

6).  The series is ×0.5 + 0.5, ×1 + 1, ×1.5 + 1.5, ...

7).  The series is ×1 + 1 × 7, ×2 + 2 × 6, ×3 + 3 × 5...

8).  The series is ×1 + 2, ×2 + 3, ×3 + 4, ...

9).  The series is ×1+12, ×2 + 22 , ×3 + 32 , ...

10). The series is ×2, ÷3, ×4, ÷5, ...
