Solutions:
1.
A) in 2000, percentage of
produced cars out of the total = 86/(86 + 42 + 34) × 100 = 53.08%
2.
B) Total automobiles exported in 1999 = 10% of
40,0000+ 12% of 480000 + 20% of 60,0000 = 40,000 + 57,600 +120000 = 217600.
3.
B) cars = 28% of 480000, scooters = 35% of 600000
and motorbike = 42% of 380000.
Ratios of these = 16:25:19
4.
C) required ratio = 30% of 75 × 2 : 40% of 60 × 1
: 25 % of 84 × 1.5 = 45 : 24 : 31.5

0.204 lakh = 20400
12.
C) Total employees of TCS = 8.5 × 21/100 = 1.785
lakh = 178500
Senior female employees of TCS = 178500 × 72/100 ×

Required % = 53550/178500 × 100 = 30%
13.
D) Total employees of Cognizant = 8.5 × 10/100 =
0.85 lakh = 85000
Senior male employees of Cognizant = 85000 × 60/100
