**The results of half yearly and annual examinations are shown in the table given below.**

Result | No. of Students | |||
---|---|---|---|---|

Section A | Section B | Section C | Section D | |

Students failed in both Exams | 28 | 23 | 17 | 27 |

Students failed in half-yearly but passed in Annual Exams |
14 | 12 | 8 | 13 |

Students passed in half-yearly but failed in Annual Exams |
6 | 17 | 9 | 15 |

Students passed in both Exams | 64 | 55 | 46 | 76 |

**1. If the number of students passing an examination be considered a criterion for comparison of the difficulty level of two examinations, which of the following statements is true in this context?**

**Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

Number of students who passed half-yearly exams in the school

= (Number of students passed in half-yearly but failed in annual exams) + (Number of students passed in both exams)

= (6 + 17 + 9 + 15) + (64 + 55 + 46 + 76)

= 288.

Also, Number of students who passed annual exams in the school

= (Number of students failed in half-yearly but passed in annual exams) + (Number of students passed in both exams)

= (14 + 12 + 8 + 13) + (64 + 55 + 46 + 76)

= 288.

Since, the number of students passed in half-yearly = the number of students passed in annual exams. Therefore, it can be inferred that both the examinations had almost the same difficulty level.

**2. How many students are there in Class IX in the school?**

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Since the classification of the students on the basis of their results and sections form independent groups, so the total number of students in the class:

= (28 + 23 + 17 + 27 + 14 + 12 + 8 + 13 + 6 + 17 + 9 + 15 + 64 + 55 + 46 + 76)

= 430.

**3. Which section has the maximum pass percentage in at least one of the two examinations?**

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Pass percentages in at least one of the two examinations for different sections are:

For Section A [\(\frac{(14 + 6 + 64)}{(28 + 14 + 6 + 64)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{84}{112}\) x 100] % = 75%.

For Section B [\(\frac{(12 + 17 + 55)}{(23 + 12 + 17 + 55)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{84}{107}\) x 100] % = 78.5%.

For Section C [\(\frac{(8 + 9 + 46)}{(17 + 8 + 9 + 46)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{63}{80}\) x 100 ] % = 78.75%.

For Section D [\(\frac{(13 + 15 + 76)}{(27 + 13 + 15 + 76)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{104}{131}\) x 100] % = 79.39%.

Clearly, the pass percentage is maximum for Section D.

**4. Which section has the maximum success rate in annual examination?**

**Answer**: Option A

**Explanation**:

Total number of students passed in annual exams in a section

= [ (No. of students failed in half-yearly but passed in annual exams) + (No. of students passed in both exams) ] in that section

Therefore Success rate in annual exams in Section A

= [\(\frac{No. of students of Section A passed in annual exams}{Total number of students in Section A}\) x 100] %

= [\(\frac{(14 + 64)}{(28 + 14 + 6 + 64)}\) x 100] %

= [\(\frac{78}{112}\) x 100] %

= 69.64%.

Similarly, success rate in annual exams in:

Section B [\(\frac{(12 + 55)}{(23 + 12 + 17 + 55)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{67}{107}\) x 100] % = 62.62%.

Section C [\(\frac{(8 + 46)}{(17 + 8 + 9 + 46)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{54}{80}\) x 100] % = 67.5%.

Section D [\(\frac{(13 + 76)}{(27 + 13 + 15 + 76)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{89}{131}\) x 100] % = 67.94%.

Clearly, the success rate in the annual examination is maximum for Section A.

**5. Which section has the minimum failure rate in half yearly examination?**

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Total number of failures in half-yearly exams in a section

= [ (Number of students failed in both exams) + (Number of students failed in half-yearly but passed in Annual exams) ] in that section

Therefore Failure rate in half-yearly exams in Section A

= [\(\frac{Number of students of Section A failed in half-yearly}{Total number of students in Section A}\) x 100] %

= [\(\frac{(28 + 14)}{(28 + 14 + 6 + 64)}\) x 100] %

= [\(\frac{42}{112}\) x 100] %

= 37.5%.

Similarly, failure rate in half-yearly exams in:

Section B [\(\frac{(23 + 12)}{(23 + 12 + 17 + 55)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{35}{107}\) x 100] % = 32.71%.

Section C [\(\frac{(17 + 8)}{(17 + 8 + 9 + 46)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{25}{80}\) x 100] % = 31.25%.

Section D [\(\frac{(27 + 13)}{(27 + 13 + 15 + 76)}\) x 100] % = [\(\frac{40}{131}\) x 100] % = 30.53%.

Clearly, the failure rate is minimum for Section D

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Required difference = (128000 – 107000) = 21000.

**2. What is the difference between the total productions of the two Companies in the given years ?**

**Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

From the line-graph it is clear that the productions of Company X in the years 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 are 119000, 99000, 141000, 78000, 120000 and 159000 and those of Company Y are 139000, 120000,100000, 128000, 107000 and 148000 respectively.

Total production of Company X from 1997 to 2002

= 119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000

= 716000.

and total production of Company Y from 1997 to 2002

= 139000 + 120000 + 100000 + 128000 + 107000 + 148000

= 742000.

Difference = (742000 – 716000) = 26000.

**3. What is the average numbers of vehicles manufactured by Company X over the given period ? (rounded off to nearest integer)**

**Answer**: Option A

**Explanation**:

Average number of vehicles manufactured by Company X

= \(\frac{1}{6}\) × (119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000)

= 119333.

**4. In which of the following years, the difference between the productions of Companies X and Y was the maximum among the given years ?**

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

The difference between the productions of Companies X and Y in various years are:

For 1997 (139000 – 119000) = 20000.

For 1998 (120000 – 99000) = 21000.

For 1999 (141000 – 100000) = 41000.

For 2000 (128000 – 78000) = 50000.

For 2001 (120000 – 107000) = 13000.

For 2002 (159000 – 148000) = 11000.

Clearly, the maximum difference was in 2000.

**5. The production of Company Y in 2000 was approximately what percent of the production of Company X in the same year ?**

**Answer**: Option B

**Explanation**:

Required percentage = (128000 × 100) % ≅ 164%.

78000

**Answer**: Option A

**Explanation**:

Percentage change (rise/fall) in the production of Company Y in comparison to the previous year, for different years are:

For 1997 = [\(\frac{(35 – 25)}{25}\) × 100] % = 40%.

For 1998 = [\(\frac{(35 – 35)}{35}\) × 100] % = 0%.

For 1999 = [\(\frac{(40 – 35)}{35}\) × 100] % = 14.29%.

For 2000 = [\(\frac{(50 – 40)}{40}\) × 100] % = 25%.

Hence, the maximum percentage rise/fall in the production of Company Y is for 1997.

**2. What is the ratio of the average production of Company X in the period 1998-2000 to the average production of Company Y in the same period?**

**Answer**: Option C

**Explanation**:

Average production of Company X in the period 1998-2000

= [\(\frac{1}{3}\) × (25 + 50 + 40)] = (\(\frac{115}{3}\)) lakh tons.

Average production of Company Y in the period 1998-2000

= [\(\frac{1}{3}\) × (35 + 40 + 50)] = (\(\frac{125}{3}\)) lakh tons.

Therefore Required ratio = \(\frac{\frac{115}{3} }{\frac{125}{3}}\)

= \(\frac{23}{25}\)

**3. The average production for five years was maximum for which company?**

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Average production (in lakh tons) in five years for the three companies are:

For Company X = [\(\frac{1}{5}\) × (30 + 45 + 25 + 50 + 40)] = \(\frac{190}{5}\) = 38.

For Company Y = [\(\frac{1}{5}\) × (25 + 35 + 35 + 40 + 50)] = \(\frac{185}{5}\) = 37.

For Company Z = [\(\frac{1}{5}\) × (35 + 40 + 45 + 35 + 35)] = \(\frac{190}{5}\) = 38.

Therefore Average production of five years is maximum for both the Companies X and Z.

**4. In which year was the percentage of production of Company Z to the production of Company Y the maximum?**

**Answer**: Option A

**Explanation**:

The percentages of production of Company Z to the production of Company Z for various years are:

For 1996 = (\(\frac{35}{25}\) × 100) % = 140%.

For 1997 = (\(\frac{40}{35}\) × 100) % = 114.29%.

For 1998 = (\(\frac{45}{35}\) × 100) % = 128.57%.

For 1999 = (\(\frac{35}{40}\) × 100) % = 87.5%.

For 2000 = (\(\frac{35}{50}\) × 100) % = 70%.

Clearly, this percentage is highest for 1996.

**5. What is the percentage increase in the production of Company Y from 1996 to 1999?**

**Answer**: Option D

**Explanation**:

Percentage increase in the production of Company Y from 1996 to 1999

= [\(\frac{(40 – 25)}{25}\) × 100] %

= [\(\frac{15}{25}\) × 100] %

= 60%.
