A 10292
B 10297
C 10302
D 10307
E  None of these

Explanation:

Let the number of BCA students studying in college A = x

So the number of B.Tech students studying in college A = 1.75x

So according to question: 1.75x + x = 7500 – 2325 – 1875

2.75x = 3300

So x = 1200

1.75x = 1.75 × 1200 = 2100

So the number of BCA students and the number of B.Tech students studying in college A are 1200 and 2100 respectively.

Let the number of B.Tech students and the number of MBA students studying in college E are 10y and 9y respectively.

So according to question: 10y + 9y = 8100 – 1377 – 2106

19y = 4617, y = 243

9y = 9 × 243 = 2187

Number of B.Tech students and the number of MBA students studying in college E are 2430 and 2187 respectively.

Let the number of BCA students studying in college C = z

So the number of MBA students studying in college C = 2z

So, according to question: z + 2z = 7200 – 1944 – 2016

3z = 3240, z = 1080

Number of BCA students and the number of MBA students studying in college C are 1080 and 2160 respectively.

Number of MBA students studying in college B = 6800 – 1700 – 952 – 2380 = 1768

Number of MCA students studying in college D = 6400 – 1472 – 2176 – 832 = 1920

 College Number of students Percentage distribution of students in different courses B.Tech MBA BCA MCA A 7500 2100 0.31 × 7500 = 2325 1200 0.25 × 7500 = 1875 B 6800 0.25 × 6800 = 1700 1768 0.14 × 6800 = 952 0.35 × 6800 = 2380 C 7200 0.27 × 7200 = 1944 2160 1080 0.28 × 7200 = 2016 D 6400 0.23 × 6400 = 1472 0.34 × 6400 = 2176 0.13 × 6400 = 832 1920 E 8100 2430 2187 0.17 × 8100 = 1377 0.26 × 8100 = 2106

Total number of MCA students = 1875 + 2380 + 2016 + 1920 + 2106 = 10297

Note: Total population of a city = Number of men + Number of women + Number of children

Male population = Number of men + Number of boys

Female population = Number of women + Number of girls 6.25% of the population in Dharaman are children out of which 11325 are boys. The number of women and number of men are in the ratio of 3:4 respectively. Find the difference in the male population and female population of Dharaman.

A  9050
B  9150
C  9250
D  9350
E  9450

Explanation:

Total population of all the five cities of Kangra = 60480 / 0.16 = 378000

Population of Dharaman = 0.25 × 378000 = 94500

Number of children in Dharaman = 0.25 × 94500 = 23625

Number of girls in Dharaman = 23625 – 11325 = 12300

Number of men and women combined in Dharaman = 94500 – 23625 = 70875

Number of women in Dharaman = 70875 × 3 / 7 = 30375

Number of men in Dharaman = 70875 × 4 / 7 = 40500

Male population of Dharaman = 40500 + 11325 = 51825
