1. B) Approximate Average number of men from 2011 to 2015
= 65104+70391+70465+69395+71274/5 = 69326
2. C) total children in year range 2012-2014 = 25670+20314+21560 = 67544
Total women in the year range 2013- 2015 = 63143+57630+65935 = 186708
Approximate % difference= (186708 −67544)/186708 100 64%
3. A) total children in 2016 = 21560/2 = 10780,
Total men in 2016 = 155498-(10780+45000) = 99718
% increase in population of men in 2016 w.r.t 2011 = (99718−65104)/65104 100 = 53.16%
4. E) average number of women = (60387+62516+63143+57630+65935+45000)/6 ≈ 59102
It is given in 2016 men is double of children so men = (155498−45000)/3 2 ≈ 73665
Therefore average men in all year = (65104+70391+70465+69395+71274+73665)/6 = 70049
Difference in averages = 70049-59102 = 10947
5. D) women and children in 2012 = 62516 + 25670 = 88186
Men and women in 2015 together = 71274+65935 = 137209
Required percentage = 88186/137209 100 = 64.27%
(6 – 10):
Online Sites
HP + Lenovo (80000)
Lenovo (32000)
HP
Shopclues
15% = 12000
16% = 5120
(12000 – 5120) = 6880
Amazon
22% = 17600
30% = 9600
8000
eBay
18% = 14400
12% = 3840
10560
Snapdeal
20% = 16000
18% = 5760
10240
Flipkart
25% = 20000
24% = 7680
12320
6. A) Required % = 20000−9600/9600 100 108%
7. E) required angle = (20−18)/100 360 = 7.2°
8. C) number of HP laptops by highest seller is 12320 i.e. via Flipkart
Number of Hp laptops by lowest seller is 6880 via Shopclues, so the ratio = 12320/6880= 77/43
9. D) after 10% increase total laptops sold by Snapdeal = 16000*110/100 = 17600,
Total laptops sold by Flipkart = 20000,
%change = (20000−17600)/20000 100 = 12%,
Although 10% increase takes place next year in Snapdeal but it is 12% less than Flipkart sales in current year.
10. A) Required ratio = [(8000+12320 +10560/3)]/[(5120 +3840 +5760)/3] = 30880/14720 = 193/92
