If the average number of persons employed in Retail sector is 54 thousand and the number of persons employed in Retail sector in 2014 is 3 times of number of persons employed in Entertainment in 2012, then what is the total number of persons employed in Retail sector in 2015?
» Explain it
C
Total number of persons employed in Retail sector = 54 × 5 = 270 thousand
 
Number of persons employed in Retail sector in 2015 = 270 – [(3 × 24) + 32.50 + 35.75 + 51] = 78.75 thousand

Hence, option C is correct.

If the total number of persons in the year 2016 is 8 lakh then what is the number of employees in Entertainment sector in 2016?
» Explain it
C
The number of person employed in Entertainment in sector 2016 = 800000 – (51000 + 28500 + 15500 + 550000) 
 
= 800000 – 645000 = 155000

Hence, option C is correct.

If the average number of employees in NGO sector over the years is 22 thousand and the total number of employees in 2012 is 160 thousand, then what is the difference between the number of employees in NGO sector in all the years and the total number of employees in the sector of 'Others' in all the years? (in thousand)
» Explain it
B
The number of employees in the sector of 'Others' in 2012 = 160 – (32.50 + 24 + 14 + 45.5) 
 
= 160 – 116 = 44
 
The total number of employees in the sector of 'Others' = 44 + 82 + 152.75 + 159.25 + 550 = 988
 
The total number of employees in NGO sector = 22 × 5 = 110 
 
Reqd. difference = 988 – 110 = 878 thousands.

Hence, option B is correct.

Requried percent

=   46 + 82 + 152.75 + 159.25 + 550  × 100
14 + 12 + 25 + 30.5 + 28.5

=   990  × 100 = 900
110

Hence, option B is correct.

5
If the number of employees in Retail sector in 2015 is 51.5 thousand and the number of employees in Entertainment in 2016 is 24 thousand, then the total number of employees in 2016 is what per cent more than the total number of employees in 2015?
» Explain it
C

The total number of employees in 2015

=   51.5 + 8.25 + 30.5 + 22.5 + 159.25

=   272


The number of employees in 2016

=   51 + 24 + 28.5 + 15.5 + 550

=   669


∴    Reqd%

=    669 – 272  × 100
272

=    397  × 100
272

=   145.95%


Hence, option C is correct.
