1. D) Employee A ­­– 80/900 × 100 = 8.88%
Employee B – 40/500 × 100 = 8%
Employee C – 150/1500 × 100 = 10%
Employee B – 80/700 × 100 = 11.42%
Employee B – 100/1000 × 100 = 10%
Employee 'D' earns maximum bonus in comparison to his income.
2. A) Required % = 180/200 × 100 = 90%
3. E) Employee A – 400/80 = 5
Employee B – 200/40 = 5
Employee C – 700/150 = 4.6
Employee D – 300/80 = 3.75
Employee E – 400/100 = 4
No Employees have their salary less than 3 times the income from bonus.
4. C) For A = 400/900 × 100 = 44.4%
For B = 200/500 × 100 = 40.0%
For C = 700/1500 × 100 = 46.6%
For D = 300/700 × 100 = 42.8%
For E = 400/1000 × 100 = 40.0%
5. D) Employee A = 200/400 = 0.5
Employee B = 180/200 = 0.9
Employee C = 400/700 = 0.57

Hence statement I is false.
Statement II : [(6225 - 1787)/1787 * 100] /4 = 62%
Hence Statement II is false.
Statement III: As seen from the table financial software is the only category where the figure in 2012 is more than 4 times that in 2008

11. E) Let the numerator and denominator be 2x and 5x. Now
(2x + 4)/10 = 1/3
X = 3.
Required sum = 2x + 5x = 7x = 21
12. A) Required percentage = (750000 - 700000)/700000 * 100 = 7.14%
