Answers and Explanations

Analysis

Answer 1. (C)

Growth rate (Govt. Engg. College) = (120 – 80) / 80 = 50%

Growth rate (Private Engg. College) = (180 – 120) / 120 = 50%.

Hence the growth rate is equal.

Answer 2. (D)

From the table we can say that Total number of students in 1996–97 = (180 + 120 + 75 + 40) x 100 = 41500 = 42000 (approx)

Answer 3. (C)

% of IIT students in 1997 – 98 = 80 /560 = 1/7 = 14% (approx.)

Answer 4. (D)

Total number of students in 1997–98 = (250 + 130 + 100 + 80) 100 = 56000,

Hence the total number of students in 1998-99 = 0.9 x 56000 = 50400. Hence (d) is the correct answer
