**Solutions:**

**1. D)**% Growth for the given options are as follows

Peach 1999 = [(3.2 – 2.1)/2.1] x 100 = 52.38%

Lemon 2001 = [(4.2 – 2.9)/2.9] x 100 = 44.83%

Peach, 2002 = [(4.3 – 28)/2.8] x 100 = 53.57%

Litchi, 2000 = [(2.5 – 1.5)/1.5] x 100 = 66.67%

**2. B)**Difference in sale of Peach and Litchi brands in 2004 = 6.2 x 1.4 – 6.3 x 1.25 = 8.68 – 7.875 = 0.80 million bottles.

3. A) Ratio of 3 drinks in 1998 = 2.1 : 1.5 : 1

Sale of Litchi in the year 2004 = 3 + 10% of 3 = 3.3 million bottles

Thus total sale of drinks in 2004 = (2.1 + 1.5 + 1) x 3.3 = 15.18 million

**4. A)**Total sales in 2003 = 6.2 + 6.3 + 3 = 15.5

Total selling price of 3 types in 2003 = 15.5 x 10

^{6}x 9 x 100/80 = (175 x 10^{6})/10^{7}crores = Rs.17.5 crores**5. B)**

Total number of case in 2003 = 1.5 x 10

^{6}Total exercise (in crores) = 15.5 x 10

^{6}x 16/(24 x 10^{7}) = 1.03**6. D)**

Total students from college H = 127.7 thousand

Total students from college K = 111 thousand

Difference = 127.7 – 111 = 16.7 thousand = 16700

**7. B)**Total students in all colleges = 520.7 thousand = 520700

**8. C)**From college H and I students studying Science = 40 + 50 = 90

From college J and K students studying Science = 30 + 56 = 86

Ratio = 90 : 86 = 45 : 43

**9. A)**

Total students in college I = 148

Science students from college I = 50

Percentage = 50/148 x 100 = 33.78%

**10. E)**

Total students of Commerce from all colleges = 154.5

Average number of students = 154.5/4 = 38.652 thousand = 38625

**11. A)**

Total profit of the banks = 8529

% Profit earned by Bank of India = 851/8529 x 100 = 10%

**12. D)**

Profit earned by Oriental Bank = 457 and by Canara bank it is 1019. So reqd. ratio = 457: 1019 = 1: 2.3.

**13. B)**Required angle = 773/8529 x 360

^{0}= 32.5

^{0}

**14. C)**Since Corporation bank& Indian Overseas Bank have equal value i.e. 416, thus they will occupy exactly equal space.

**15. D)**The total profit of all banks is 8529. Now if 3600 are equal to 8529 then 130 will be equal to 8529 x 13/ 360 = 307

Which is the value of Central bank, so Central Bank of India occupies about 130 space in the pie.

**16. C)**

Required ratio= 17% 54000/33% of 54000 = 17 : 33

**17. D)**Since 54000/32000 appears in every calculation, we remove it from the calculation part and find the remaining part of the calculation.

A – 18/15, B – 16/11, C – 7/8, D – 21/17, E – 14/9,F = 11/18, G = 13/22, C,F and G are rejected since their value is less than 1 and others are more than 1. Among the remaining E has the highest value.

**18. C)**2% of 54000 = 1080

**19. A)**Qualified candidates from states A and D together = 39% of 32000

Similarly, appeared candidates from states A and D together = 32% of 54000

Reqd % = 39x32x10

^{3}/32x54x10^{3}x 100 = 72.22% (approx.)**20. C)**Total number of qualified candidates from states C and D = 28% of 32000.

Similarly, total number of appeared candidates from state G = 22% of 54000
