Important for :
1
What was the total number of failed candidates from states WB in the year 2014 and the number of candidates who appeared in the exam from state J&K in the year 2012?
» Explain it
E

=   (354 – 258) + 235

=    96 + 235 = 331.

Hence, option E is correct.

2
In which year was the difference between the number of candidates who appeared and passed in the exam from state MP second lowest?
» Explain it
B

Unsuccessful candidates (state -MP)

Year 2010 ⇒ 445 – 354 = 91

Year 2011 ⇒ 545 – 435 = 110

Year 2012 ⇒ 664 – 454 = 210

Year 2013 ⇒ 345 – 144 = 201

Year 2014 ⇒ 584 – 354 = 230

Year 2015 ⇒ 704 – 347 = 357

Hence, option B is correct.

3
What was the respective ratio between the number of candidates who appeared from state WB in the year 2012 and the number of candidates who passed in the exam from state J&K in the year 2015?
» Explain it
A

Reqd. ratio

=   693 : 252

=   11 : 4.

Hence, option A is correct.

4
Number of candidates who passed in the exam from state MP in the year 2011 was approximately what percent of number of candidates who appeared from state UP in the year 2014?
» Explain it
E
In year 2011, No. of candidates who passed the exam in MP = 435

In year 2014, No. of candidates who appeared in exam in UP = 546

 Reqd. % = 435 × 100 ≈ 80 546

Hence, option is E is correct.

5
What was the approximate percent increase in the number of candidates who passed in the exam from state UP in the year 2015 as compare to the previous year?
» Explain it
C
In year 2015, No. of candidates who passed the exam in UP = 435

In year 2014 (previous year), No. of candidates who passed the exam in UP = 346

Reqd. Increase %

 = 435 – 346 × 100 346

 = 89 × 100 346

 ≈ 9000 ≈ 26% 350

Hence, option C is correct.
