Solution:

1).Total number of students from the discipline of commerce from all the colleges together =6125 +11250 +10590 +11040 +9720=48725
Average =48725/5 =9745

2).In the table, we can observe that college S has the least number of students from the discipline of science

3).The total number of students from the discipline of Arts from all the colleges together =4375 +3750 +5295 +6440 +9396 =29256
The total number of students from the discipline of Science from all the colleges together=7000 + 10000 + 19415 + 5520 +13284 =55219
Required difference = 25963

4). The number of students from the disciplines of arts and commerce together from colleges P=4375 + 6125 =10500
The number of students from the disciplines of arts and commerce together from colleges Q = 3750 +11250 =15000
Ratio =10500 : 15000=21 : 30 =7:10

5). Number of students from the discipline of arts from college S= 6440
Number of students from the discipline of commerce from college S=11040
Required percentage = [6440/11040] ×100 = 58.33%

7).
SSC 2010 to 2012 =240 +260 + 400 =900
Percentage = 900 × 100/2440 = 36.88%~=37%

8). IBPS = 340 × 1.15 = 391, SSC = 250 × 1.4 =350,Railway =300 × 0.55 =165
Total =391 + 350 +165 =906

9). Total students across all years =600 + 700+ 780 +960 +890 =3930
Total IBPS = 1480
Percentage =1480 × 100/3930 =37.65%

10). 2008 IBPS =240/1.2 = 200, SSC =210/1.4 =150, Railway =150 / 0.5 =300
2008 Total =650
SSC % =150 × 100/650 =23%
