Solution:

1).i02(B) โ i97(A) ยญ= 405
e02(B) โ e97(A) ยญ= i02(B)ร (100 / 135) –  i97(A)ร (100 / 135)
= (i02(B) โ i97(A) ยญ) ร (100 / 135)
= 405 ร (100 / 135) = Rs. 300 lakhs

2).Ratio of expenditure to income for company B is the least when the percentage profit is maximum. Hence, in 1999 the ratio was least.

3).i00(A) =  e97(B) ยญ= Rs. x lakhs
i97(B) / ยญ e00(A) = [e97(B)ร (125 / 100) ] / [i00(A) ร (100 / 150)]
= [(125 ร 150) / (100 ร 10] = 15 : 8

4).Expenditure of A in 2002 = 660 ร (100 / 165) = Rs. 400 lakhs

5).Without knowing the income for different years, the expenditure value canโt be determined

6).Total number of graduate employees working in Department A
= 8000 ร (12.5 / 100) ร (27 / 100) = 270

7).Total number of non โ graduate employees
= [8000 / (100 ร 100)] {12.5 ร 73 + 16 ร 55 + 22 ร 67.5 + 18.5 ร 45 + 14 ร 65 + 17 ร 52.5 }
= 0.8 {912.5 + 880 + 1485 + 832.5 + 910 + 892.5} = 0.8 ร 5912.5 = 4730

8).Total number of graduate employees working in Department E
= 8000 ร (14 / 100) ร (35 / 100) = 392
Reqd % = (392 / 8000) ร 100 = 4.9%

9).Total number of graduate employees working in Department D
= 8000 ร (18.5 / 100) ร (55 / 100) = 814
Total number of non – graduate employees working in Department D
= 8000 ร (18.5 / 100) ร (45 / 100) = 666
Reqd % = [(814 โ 666) / 600] ร 100
= (14800 / 666) = 22.22% mores
