b)   105 2/3
c)   108 1/3
d)   112 1/3
e)   None of these

1). E)
Number of units produced in 2012 by
Company A = 1.78 x (135/100) x (135/100) = 324405 lakh

2). E)
Reqd % rise
=  [(50-20) / 20] × 100 = (30/20)×100 = 150%

3). B)
From the graph there is no increase in the production of Company B in the year 2015 with respect to the previous year

4). E)
The number of units produced by Company B in 2013
= (3.90x135) / 100= 5.265 lakh
The number of units produced by Company A in the year 2013
= 3.90 × (90/100) ×  (120/100) = 4.212 lakh
Raid difference= 5.265 – 4.212= 1.053 lakh = 105300

5). B)
Reqd % rise = [(35-30)/30] x100
= 5/30 × 100 = 50/3 = 16 2/3%

6). A)
The number of male employees working in Scale VI = (1200 × 17) / 100 = 204
Number of employees working, in Scale Vi = (2500 × 16) / 100 = 400
Reqd % = (204/400) × 100 = 51%

7). C)
Number of employees in Scale VI = (2500 × 16) /100 = 400
The number of  female employees in  Scale VI = 400 – (1200 × 17) /100 = 400 – 204 = 196
The number of  male employees in  Scale I = (1200 × 24) /100 = 288
Reqd Ratio = 196/288 = 98/144 = 49/72 = 49:72

8). D)
The number of female employees in Scale III = (2500 × 9) /100 – (1200 × 16) 100
= 225 – 192 = 33
The number of male employees in Scale IV and II together
= (11 + 15) of 1200 / 100 = (26 × 1200) / 100 = 312
Reqd % = (33/312) × 100 = 10.57%

9). A)
The number of male employees in Scale VI and Scale III together
= (17 + 16)%  of 1200
= 33% of 1200   = 396
The number of female employees in scale I = (2500×24)/ 100  - (1200×24)/ 100
= 600 – 288 = 312
Reqd difference = 396- 312=84

10). C)
The number of females in the organization
= 2500 - 1200 = 1300
Average number of female employees =1300 /7
Average number of male employees = 1200/7

Reqd % =  1300 /7  × 7/1200  x 100 = 108 1/3%
