Solution
1.The percentage of candidates selected over the candidates appeared in 1997 for various states are:
For, Delhi = (94/8000) × 100 = 1.175%
For, H.P = (82/7800) × 100 = 1.051%
For, U.P = (78/7500) × 100 = 1.040%
For, Punjab = (85/8200) × 100 = 1.037%
For, Haryana = (75/6400) × 100 = 1.172%
clearly, this percentage is lowest for Punjab.

2.The percentage of candidates qualified from Punjab over those appeared from Punjab during different years are:
For, 1997 = (680/8200) × 100 = 8.29%
For, 1998 = (600/6800) × 100 = 8.82%
For, 1999 = (525/6500) × 100 = 8.08%
For, 2000 = (720/7800) × 100 = 9.23%
For, 2001 = (485/5700) × 100 = 8.51%
clearly, this percentage is highest for the year 2000.

3.The percentage of candidates selected from U.P over those qualified from U.P during different years are:
For, 1997 = (78/720) × 100 = 10.83%
For, 1998 = (85/620) × 100 = 13.71%
For, 1999 = (48/400) × 100 = 12%
For, 2000 = (70/650) × 100 = 10.77%
For, 2001 = (80/950) × 100 = 8.42%
clearly, this percentage is highest for the year 1998.

4.Required% = [(75+75+55+60+75)/(94+48+82+90+70)] × 100
= (340/384) × 100
= 88.5%

5.The average number of candidates selected over the given period for various states are:
For, Delhi = (94+48+82+90+70)/5 = 384/5 = 76.8
For, H.P = (82+65+70+86+75)/5 = 378/5 = 75.6
For, U.P = (78+85+48+70+80)/5 = 361/5 = 72.2
For, Punjab = (85+70+65+84+60)/5 = 364/5 = 72.8
For, Haryana = (75+75+55+60+75)/5 = 340/5 = 68
clearly, this average is maximum for Delhi.

6.Required% = [(82+70+48+65+55)/(640+560+400+525+350)] × 100
= (320/2475) × 100
= 12.93 = 13%

7.Required ratio = (83+108+74+88+98) : (98+112+101+133+142)
= 451:586 = 10:13

8.Total expenditure of the company during 2000
= Rs.(324+101+3.84+41.6+74) lakhs
= Rs.544.44 lakhs

9.Average amount of interest paid by the company during the given period
= Rs.[(23.4+32.5+41.6+36.4+49.4)/5] lakhs
= Rs.(183.3/5) lakhs
= Rs.36.66 lakhs

10.Required% = [(288+98+3.00+23.4+83)/(420+142+3.96+49.4+98)] × 100
= (495.4/713.36) × 100 = 69.45%

11.Required% = [(3.00+2.52+3.84+3.68+3.96)/(288+342+324+336+420)] × 100
= (17/1710) × 100 = 1%
