Answer with Solution:
1. (A); Number of male employees in unit C for company X
= 14% of 2500 × (3/7) = 150
Number of female employees in unit C for company Y
= 15% of 3000 × (1/3) = 150

2. (E); Number of female employees of company Y in unit E
= 22% of 3000 × 1/3 = 220
Number of male employees of company X in unit E
= 10% of 2500 × 2/5 = 100
:. Required more % = (220-100)/100 × 100
= 120%

3. (B); Number of male employees in different units for company Y : A = 300,
B = 240, C = 300, D = 100, E = 440 and F = 150.
Hence, our answer is A and C.

4. (C); Required ratio = (10%of 2500×2/5) / (15% of 3000×1/3)= 2 : 3

5. (A); Number of female employees for company Y in different units:
A = 60, B = 300, C = 150, D = 500, E = 220 and F = 240

6. (C); Average population (in thousands) of both the towns in 1994
= (45+44+48+45)/2
= 45 + 22 + 24 = 91 and that in 1998
= (50+47+50+47)/ 2
= 50 + 47 = 97
:. Required percentage increase = (6/91) × 100
= 6.59% Approx. 7%.

7. (B); Required ratio

8. (A); Population of X and Y in 1996
= (50 + 47+47 + 48 ) × 1000 = 192000
Population of X and Y in 1994
= (45 + 44 + 48 + 45) × 1000 = 182000
Now, 192 × 1000 = x × 182 × 1000
:. x = (192/182) = 1.05

9. (B); Average number of females for
X =1/5 (45 + 47 + 48 + 50 + 47) × 1000
= 237 × 200 = 47400
Y =1/5 (48 + 49 + 47 + 50 + 50) × 1000
= 244 × 200 = 48800
So, 1994, 1995 and 1998 are the three desired years for X and 1994 and 1996
are the two desired years for Y. Hence the required number of years is four
(1994, 1995, 1996 and 1998).

10. (B)
In 1994 → (45000 – 44000) = 1000
In 1995 → (47000 - 44000) = 3000
In 1996 → (48000 – 47000) = 1000
In 1997 → (50000 – 48000) = 2000
In 1998 → (47000 – 47000) = 0
