1.  Answer: (A)
Percentage of money spend on Tennis = [(45 /360)] X 100% = 12 ½

2. Answer: (A)
Let the total spending on sports be Rs. x. Then,
Amount spent on Golf = Rs  [(36x/ 360 )] = Rs. x/ 10
Amount spent on Hockey = Rs [ ( 63x/360)]= Rs. 7x /40
Difference = Rs. [(7x /40) – (x/10)]  = Rs 3x/40
Required percentage = Rs. [ (3x/40)/ x /10) * 100] % = 75%

3. Answer: (A)
Amount spent on Basketball exceeds that on Tennis by:
Rs. [ (50 - 45)/ 360) * 1,80,00,000]= Rs. 2,50,000.

4. Answer: (C)
Let the total spending on sports be Rs. x. Then,
Amount spent on Cricket = Rs [( 81/360) * x ) = Rs. 9x/40
Amount spent on Football = Rs [( 54/360) *x] = Rs. 3x/20
Difference = Rs. [ ( 9x /40) – ( 3x/20) ] = Rs. 3x/40
Required percentage = Rs. [ (3x/40/ 9x/40) * 100)] % = 33 1/3 %
