Directions : Study the following pie chart carefully and answer the questions given beside.

The following pie chart gives the information about the percentage breakup of the number of candidates appearing in an entrance examination from five different cities, A, B, C, D, and E.

Total number of candidates appearing in the entrance examination = 82000

Important for :
1
The ratio of candidates passing and failing in the city A was 2 : 3 respectively, then total how many candidates passed from the city A?
» Explain it
B
The total number of candidates appeared from the city A = 14% of 82000 = 11480

The number of candidates passed from the city A

 = 2 × 11480 = 2296 × 2 = 4592 5

Hence, option B is correct.

2
The total number of candidates appearing the examination from city C was what percentage of the total number of candidates appearing the exam from the city D?
» Explain it
C
The total number of candidates appearing the examination from city C = 22% of 82000 = 18040

The total number of candidates appearing the examination from city D = 16% of 82000 = 13120

 The reqd. % = 18040 × 100 = 137.5% 13120

Hence, option C is correct.

3
13% of the total number of candidates who appeared the examination from city E passed the examination then total how many of candidates from city E didn’t pass the examination?
» Explain it
A
Total number of candidates who appeared the examination from city E = 30% of 82000 = 24600

13% of 24600 = 3198

candidates from city E didn’t pass the examination = 24600 – 3198 = 21402

Hence, option A is correct.

4
60% of the candidates who appeared the examination from city C were male and 25% of the total number of candidates who appeared the exam were female , then total how many males appeared for the examination except city C?
» Explain it
D
The total number of candidates appearing the examination from city C = 22% of 82000 = 18040

60% of 18040 = 10824

Total number of males who appeared the examination = (100 – 25) = 75% of 82000 = 61500

total males appeared the examination except city C = 61500 – 10824 = 50676

Hence, option D is correct.

5
40% of the total number of candidates who appeared for the examination from city A didn’t pass the exam, then the number of candidates who passed the examination from city A was what percentage of the total number of candidates who appeared for the examination?
» Explain it
B
The total number of candidates appeared from the city A = 14% of 82000 = 11480

The total number of candidates from city A who passed the examination = (100 – 40) = 60% of 11480 = 6888

 Reqd. % = 6888 × 100 = 6888 = 8.4% 82000 820

Hence, option B is correct.
