• # question_answer Direction: These questions are based on following graphs. Classification of appeared candidates in a competitive test from different States and qualified candidates from those States. Total appeared candidates = 45,000. Total qualified candidates = 9000. What is the ratio between the number of appeared candidates from States C and E together and the appeared candidates from States A and F together? A) 17 : 33 B) 11 : 13 C) 13 : 27 D) 17 : 27

(a) No. of candidates appeared from, State C = $\frac{8}{100}\times 45000$= 3600 State E = $\frac{9}{100}\times 45000$ = 4050 State A = $\frac{15}{100}\times 45000$ = 6750 State F = $\frac{18}{100}\times 45000$ = 8100 $\therefore$ Required ratio = $\frac{3600+4050}{6750+8100}$ = $\frac{7650}{14850}$ = 17:33
