(1) 120
(2) 150
(3) 125
(4) 80
(5) None of these

3. Approximately what was the difference between the number of students who cleared the entrance exam in 2009 and number of students who cleared the entrance exam in 2007?
(1) 960
(2) 1920
(3) 3200
(4) 5120
(5) None of these

(1) 2008
(2) 2007
(3) 2010
(4) 2009
(5) None of these

5. The total number of students who cleared the exam from all years together is what percent of the total number of students appeared for the exam in all years together?
(1) 17.5%
(2) 15%
(3) 22.5%
(4) 12.5%
(5) None of these

6. The number of candidates who cleared the entrance exam in 2008 is approximately how much percent of the total number of students who appeared for the exam in the same year?
(1) 12
(2) 18
(3) 15
(4) 8
(5) 5

7. Approximately what was the total number of students cleared the entrance exam in 2010 and 2009 together?
(1) 6400
(2) 15200
(3) 115200
(4) 7920
(5) None of these

1. (3)
Required ratio = 18% of 256000 / 10% of 32000  = 72 : 5

2. (3)
Required percentage = (15 + 10)/20 * 100 = 125%

3. (2)
Required difference = (16 – 10)% of 32000 = 1920

4. (3)
The difference between number of students selected to number of students appeared in entrance exam in 2007
= 12 % of 256000 – 10% of 32000 = 27520
Similarly calculating for all years, the maximum difference will be for 2010.

5. (4)
Required percentage = 32000/256000 = 12.5%

6. (1)
Required percentage =  14% of 32000/15% of 256000 * 100 = 11.67

7. (5)
Required number = (20 + 16)% of 32000 = 11520
