How many pages more/less are occupied by Stories in ‘A’ than in ‘D’?
» Explain it
A
Pages occupied by stories in A = 21% of 180

 = 21 × 180 = 37.8 100

Pages occupied by stories in D = 21% of 205

 = 21 × 205 = 43.05 100

Difference in page occupied = 43.05 – 37.8 = 5.25

So, stories in A occupied 5.25 pages less than stories in D.

Hence, option A is correct.

2
If in magazine F, six articles are published in Science then approximately how many articles are published on Religion?
» Explain it
B
Pages occupied by Science in F = 17% of 192

 = 17 × 192 = 32.64 100

 ∴  Page per article = 32.64 = 5.44 6

Pages occupied by religion in F = 13% of 192

 = 13 × 192 = 24.96 100

Required number of article of religion

 = 24.96 ≈ 5 5.44

Hence, option B is correct.

3
The number of articles on Arts in C is six. The number of articles on Arts in C and B are in the same proportion as the total number of their pages. The number of articles on Arts in B is about
» Explain it
C
Pages occupied by Art in C = 12% of 168

 = 12 × 168 = 20.16 100

Pages occupied by Art in B = 12% of 275

 = 12 × 2.75 = 33 100

Ratio of articles = Ratio of pages occupied

 ∴ 6 = 20.16 x 33

( x = number of articles of Art in C)

 x = 6 × 33 ≈ 10 20.16

∴  Number of article of Art in C = 10.

Hence, option C is correct.

4
In certain issue of E, eight stories were published and the ratio of total number of articles submitted in E and C is 19 : 20. How many articles were submitted in C taking number of pages used in stories as an average for other articles?
» Explain it

Number of pages occupied by stories in E = 21% of 137

 = 21 × 137 = 28.77 100

Page per article of stories in E

 = 28.77 = 3.596 8

Number of Articles in E

 = Total Pages = 137 ≈ 38 Pages per Articles 3.596

By the rule of ratio & proportion, we get

∴   19 : 20 : :    38 : x

 x = 20 × 38 = 40. 19

Hence, option D is correct.

5
By approximately what percent of number of pages devoted for Arts is more in B than in A? The percentages given in Chart II may be taken as percentages of the pages occupied by the respective topics.
» Explain it
B
Page devoted to Arts in B = 12% of 275

 = 12 × 275 = 33 100

Pages devoted to Art in A = 12% of 180

 = 12 × 180 = 21.6 100

∴  Required percentage

 = 33 – 21.6 × 100% ≈ 52.7% 21.6

Hence, option B is correct.
