**Solutions:**

**1. E)**Total candidates passed in West region in 2012 = 780

Total candidates passed
in East region in 2015 = 500

Required %= (780 –
500)/500 × 100 = 280/5 = 56%

**2. B)**The total number of selected students in South region

= 75 + 72 + 104 + 112 +
60 + 75 = 498

Average = 498/6 = 83

The total number of
selected students in North region

= 95 + 84 + 77 + 78 + 64
+ 58 = 456

Average = 456/6 = 76

Difference = 83 – 76 = 7

**3. A)**Total number of students selected in East region

= 80 + 60 + 66 + 55+ 52 +
60 = 373

Total number of students
selected in West region

= 80 + 120 + 72 + 96 + 64
+ 68 = 500

Required% = 373/500 × 100
=74.6% = 75%

**4. C)**Percentage of candidates passed in West region

= 780/5600 × 100 = 13.92%

Percentage of candidates
passed in South region

= 480/7500 × 100 = 6.4%

Percentage of candidates
passed in East region

= 800/4800 × 100 =16.66%

Percentage of candidates
passed in North region

= 700/7500 × 100 = 9.33%

Percentage of candidates
passed in East region in 2012 is highest

**5. D)**Percentage of selected candidates in North region in 2012

= 95/700 × 100 = 13.57%

Percentage of selected
candidates in North region in 2013

= 84/540 × 100 = 15.5%

Percentage of selected
candidates in North region in 2014

= 77/660 × 100 = 11.6%

Percentage of selected
candidates in North region in 2015

= 78/720 × 100 = 10.83%

Percentage of selected
candidates in North region in 2016

= 64/640 × 100 = 10%

Percentage of selected candidates
in North region in 2017

= 58/580 × 100 = 11.6%

The percentage of
selected candidates with respect to passed candidates the highest in North
region in 2013

**6. B)**Total Quantity of Zinc=4/9*18 + 2/9*45=8+10==>18

Total Quantity of
Copper=5/9*18 + 7/9*45=10+35==>45

Ratio=18:45=2:5.

**7. D)**(125/100 *115/100*110/100 )*P =1265

(253/160) * P =1265

P=Rs800.

**8. C)**(65000*12)/(40000*x)=13/4

X= 3/2x=1/4

X=6.

**9. D)**12% of 100 ==>112

12% of 112 ==>125.44

12% of 125.44 ==>
140.49.
