The bar chart given below shows the number of students who cleared the two examinations, RRB Scale 1 and RRB Assistant over the years per every 1000 students who appeared in these exams.  Important for :
1
If the total numbers of students appeared in RRB Scale I in 2016 was 2.5 lakhs then how many of them had cleared the RRB Scale I examination in 2016?
» Explain it
D
The total numbers of students appeared in RRB Scale I in 2016 was 2.5 lakhs

In the question, it is given that 280 out of 1000 students cleared the RRB Scale I examination

Then the total number of students out of 2.5 lakhs who cleared the examination

 = 280 × 250000 = 70000 1000

Hence, option D is correct.

2
The total number of students who cleared both the examinations together in 2014 is approximately what percent of the total number of students who cleared both the examination together in 2017? (Number of students who applied in 2014 is 50% less than the number of students who applied in 2017)
» Explain it
A
Number of students who applied in 2014 is 50% less than the number of students who applied in 2017

Let the total number of students who applied in 2017 = 2x thousands

Then the total number of students who applied in 2014 = 50% less than 2x thousands = 50% of 2x thousands = x thousands

The total number of students who cleared both the examination together in 2014 = (120 + 145) out of 2000

 So out of x thousands = 265 × x 2000

Similarly. The total number of students who cleared both the examination together in 2017
 = (150 + 175) × 2x = 650x 2000 2000

 The reqd. % = [265x/2000] × 100 [650x/2000]

 = 265 × 100 = 40.77% approximately 650

Hence, option A is correct.

3
The number of students who cleared RRB Scale I examination in 2015 is approximately what percent more than the number of students who cleared RRB assistant examination in that year?
» Explain it
E
Since we don’t know how many students applied for RRB Scale I examination in 2015 of RRB assistant examination in that year so it is not possible to find the required percentage.

Hence, option E is correct.

4
What is the respective ratio of the total number of students who cleared RRB Scale I examination over the years and the total number of students who cleared RRB Assistant examination over the years? (the total number of students applied for RRB Scale I examination over the years is 75% the total number of students applied for RRB Assistant examination over the years)
» Explain it
C
Let the total number of students applied for RRB Assistant examination over the years = 4x thousands

Then the total number of students applied for RRB Scale I examination over the years = 75% of 4x thousands = 3x thousands

According to the question, the total number of students cleared RRB Scale I examination over the years = 790 out of 5000

 So out of 3x thousands = 790 × 3x ........(i) 5000

And, the total number of students cleared RRB assistant examination over the years = 610 out of 5000
 So out of 4x thousands = 610 ×4x ........(ii) 5000

 The reqd. ratio = 790 × 3x : 610 × 4x = 237 : 244 5000 5000

Hence, option C is correct.

5
The total number of students who applied in 2017 was 7.5 lakhs and the respective ratio of the number of students who applied RRB Scale I and RRB assistant 7 : 8 then find the respective ratio of the number of students who cleared RRB Scale I examination in 2017 and the number of students who cleared RRB assistant examination 2017?
» Explain it
C
The total number of students who applied in 2017 = 7.5 lakhs

the respective ratio of the number of students who applied RRB Scale I and RRB assistant 7 : 8

so, the number of students applied for RRB Scale I

 = 7 × 7.5 = 3.5 lakhs 15

and the number of students applied for RRB assistant
 = 8 × 7.5 = 4 lakhs 15

the number of students who cleared RRB Scale I examination in 2017 = 150 out of 1000
 so out of 3.5 lakhs = 150 × 3.5 lakhs 1000

similarly, the number of students who cleared RRB Assistant examination
 = 175 × 4 lakhs 1000

 The reqd. ratio = 150 × 3.5 lakhs : 175 × 4 lakhs = 3 : 4 1000 1000

Hence, option C is correct.
