Solutions:
1. E) Number of Tennis liking persons = 175
million
Number of Tennis + Football + Cricket
– liking persons = 300 + 275 + 175 = 750 million
Therefore required percentage =
175/750 × 100 = 70/3 = 23 1/3%
2. D) Number of people preferring to play
football = (375 + 400 + 300 + 200 + 250 + 275) million = 1800 million
3. C) Required difference = 275 – 175 = 100
million
4. B) Required ratio = 375 : 325 = 15 : 13
5. A) Number of people preferring to play
cricket = (400 + 375 + 375 + 250 + 350 + 300) million = 2050 million
6. E) Required number of pairs = (16 ×
5150)/100 + (37 × 4800)/100 = 824 + 1776 = 2600
7. D) Total number of shoe pairs sale in
store R over the years = 8950 + 9740 + 8760 + 7470 = 34920
Number of shoe pairs sold by store R
in
1997 => (8950 × 42)/100 = 3759
1998 => (9740 × 55)/100 = 5357
1999 => (8760 × 25)/100 = 2190
2000 => (7470 × 70)/100 = 5229
Therefore, sold pairs = 3759 + 5357 +
2190 + 5229 = 16535
Therefore, required percentage =
16535/34920 × 100 = 47.351 ≈ 47%
8. B) Number of shoe pairs sold by store U
in 2000 = (8260 × 75)/100 = 6195
Number of shoe pairs sold by store W
in 2000 = 7860 × 55/100 = 4323
Therefore required ratio = 6195 :
4323 = 2065 : 1441
9. E) Number of shoe pairs sold by store T
in 1999 = 6120 × 65/100 = 3978
10. C) Number of shoe pairs sold by store S
in
1997 => 54 × 4950/100 = 2673
1998 => 6500 × 87/100 = 5655
1999 => 35 × 7940/100 = 2779
2000 => 64 × 7550/100 = 4832
Therefore required average = (2673 +
5655 + 2779 + 4832)/4 = 15939/4 = 3984.75 ≈ 3985
