Solutions:
1. A) Profit earned by company B in all the years (T in crores) = 90+ 110+120+140+105+135 = 700
Average profit = 700/6 = 120 crores
2. A) Profit earned by three companies in 2007 = 80+90+85 = 225 crores
Profit earned by three companies in 2011 = 115+105+120 = 340
Required ratio = 225 : 340 = 3 : 4
3. E) Profit earned by all the three companies (in crores)
In 2008 = 90 +110+120 = 320
In 2009 = 130+120+110 = 360
In 2010 = 100+140+120 = 360
In 2011 = 115+105+120 = 340
In 2012 = 125+135+115 = 375
In is cleared from above, the maximum profit earned by all three companies in 2012.
4. E) Profit earned by company C in 2007 = 85 (crores)
Profit earned by company C in 2011 = 120(crores)
Increase percent = (120 – 85)/85 × 100 % = 41.1% ≈ 40%
5. A) Profit earned by company A in 2011 = 115(crores)
Profit earned by company C in 2012 = 115(crores)
Profit earned by company A in 2007 = 80(crores)
Required percent = (115 + 115)/80 × 100 % = 287.5% ≈ 288%
Profit earned by company A in 2009 from 2008.
6. A) Let the total number of employees in company A= x
According to question,
[(x × 40/100) + (x × 30/100)]/2 = 518 => 70x/100 = 1036 => 7x = 10360 => x = 1480
7. C) Let the number of employees in company B = x and the number of employee in company E = 3x then according to the question,
3x × 20x/100 × 35/100 = 300 => 60x – 35x = 30000 => x = 1200
8. C) Total number of Arts and commerce graduate employees in company D = 1300 × 52/100 = 676
Number of Arts graduate employees in company D = 676 × 4/3 = 52 × 4 = 208
9. B) Total number of employees in company C in April 2014 = 900 × 1400/100 = 1260
The number of commerce graduate employees in company C, in April 2014 = 1260 × 50/100 = 630
10. E) The number of science graduate employees in Company C = 900 × 21/100 = 189
