Solutions:
1. E) Reqd difference = 27% of 22000  16% of 25000 = 5940  4000 = 1940
2. D) No. of D type cars produced in 1996 = 25% of 20000 = 5000
No. of different type cars produced in 1996 is:
A = 2500, B = 7500, C = 4000, D = 6000 and E = 5000
3. A) From 1999 to 2000, there is a 100% increase in the percentage in the D type of cars, wh re as in other cases it is less than 100%
4. C) No. of B type cars produced in 1998 = 30% of 25000 = 7500
% share of B type cars in 1999 = (7500 / 22000) × 100  35%
5. D) Reqd no. of unsold B type cars = [20% of 20000 + 25% of 18000 + 30% of 25000 + 25% of 22000 + 30% of 28000] × (10 / 100) = 2990
6. C) Non-academic books:
Publisher Yamuna = 35700 × 6/17 = 12600
Publisher Padma = 37800 × 13/18 = 27300
Required average = (12600 + 27300)/2 = 39900/2 = 19950
7. D) Required number distributed books
= 29700 × 92/100 + 33800 × 79/100 = 27324 + 26702 = 54026
8. C) Academic books published by publisher Kaveri = 28200 × 7/10 = 19740
Academic books published by publisher Godavari = 31200 × 8/13 = 19200
Required difference = 19740 – 19200 = 540
9. B) Books distributed = 33800 × 79/100 = 26702
Books given to each distributor = 26702/25 = 1068
10. A) Total books published by Publishers Godavari, Narmada and Yamuna
= (31200 + 33800 + 35700) × 130/100 = 100700 × 130/100 = 130910
Books published by remaining publishers
= (28200 + 32200 + 29700 + 37800) × 80/100 = 127900 × 80/100 = 102320
Required average = (130910 + 102320)/7 = 233230/7 = 33318
11. E) Population in Assam = 12 × 1.3 = 15.6 lakh,
Population in Maharashtra = 12 × 1.4 = 16.8 lakh
Difference = 16.8 – 15.6 = 1.2 lakh
12. D) Population of Jharkhand in 2001 = 20 × 1.75 = 35 lakh
Population of Maharashtra in 2001 = 24 × 1.4 = 33.6 lakh
Required% = 33.6/35 × 100 = 96%
13. B) Let the population of Punjab in the year 2001 be ‘x’.
Its population in 2010 = x × 1.25 × 1.3 = 1.625x
Required% = 1.625x – x/x × 100 = 62.5%
14. C) Population in 2015 = 16 × 1.4 ×1.5 × 1.7 = 57.12 lakh
15. A) Let the population in the years 2001 was x
Population in 2010 = 1.25 × 1.3 × x = 13.65 lakh
x = 13.65/1.25 × 1.3 = 8.4 lakh
