Solution:
1). Total investment of all these states
= Rs (780 + 890 + 985 + 345 + 365 + 415 + 972) = Rs 4752
Total investment in Others
= 4752 × 23.7 / 100 = 47.52 × 23.7
= Rs 1126.224 crore

2). (Rajasthan : AP)
= (780 × 27.6%) : (985 × 27.6%)
(Rajasthan : AP) = 156 : 197
(TN : Odisha) = (890 × 27.6%) : (365 × 27.6%) = 198 : 73
(Punjab : Maharashtra) = (345 : 27.6%) : (415 × 27.6%) = 69 : 83
(JK : Rajasthan) = (972 × 27.6%): (780 × 27.6%) = 81.65
And (AP : Punjab) = (985 × 27.6%) : (345 × 27.6%) = 197 : 69

3). Total FDI in Rajasthan = Rs 780 crore
FDI in Power sector in Rajasthan
= 15.5% of 780
= 15.5 × 7.8 = Rs 120.9 crore
Now, total FDI in JK = Rs 972 crore
And the FDI in Road sector in JK = 13.2% of 972 = 13.2 × 9.72 = Rs 128.304 crore
Required % = 120.9/128.304 × 100 = 12090000/128304 = 94.229 = 94%

4). Total FDI in Odisha = Rs. 365 crore
And the FDI in entertainment sector in Odisha
= 9.5% of 365 = 9.5 × 3.65 = Rs 34.675 crore
Now, the FDI in telecom sector in Maharashtra
= 10.5% of 415 = 10.5 × 4.15 = Rs 43.575 crore
% loss = (43.575 34.675) / 43.575 × 100
= 8.9/43.575 × 100 = 20.4245 = 20.43%

5). Investment in IT sector in AP
= 27.6% of 985 = 27.6 × 9.85 = 271.86
Now the total investment in Road sector in TN
= 13.2% of 890 = Rs 117.48 crore
Required ratio = 271.86 : 117.48
= 13593 : 5874

6). ? = 47 × 563 / 23 × 112
= 26461 / 2576 = 10.

7). 6832 ÷ 58 × ? – 1624.64 = 1064.28
= 117.79 × ? – 1625 = 1064
= 118 × ? = 1064 + 1625 = 2689
? = 2689/118 = 22.78 = 24.

8). (34.9)^2 ÷ 7 + √? = 217.02
√? = 217.02 – 35 × 35/7 = 217 – 175 =42
? = 42 × 42 = 1764 = 1765.

9). ? – 623.68 = 33% of 3400 + 13% of 170
= 33 × 3400 / 100  +  13 × 170 / 100
= 1144.1 + 623.68 = 1144 + 624
= 1768 = 1770

10). 24% of 650 - ?% 123.68 = 78.2
24 × 650 / 100  -  ? × 124 / 100 = 78
156 – 78 = ? × 124 / 100
? × 124 / 100 = 78
? = 78 × 100 / 124 = 62.90 = 63.
