C.48000

D.34000

E.None of these

**D.34000**

**Explanation:**

**Explanation:**

Total employees = 1800

female employees = 40%

male employees = 60%

50% of male employess = UG graduates = 30%

Female employees who are UG graduates = 22%

22% of 1800 = 396**Ravi got 70% in English and 56% in Biology and the maximum marks of both papers is 100. What percent does he score in Maths, if he scores 60% marks in all the three subjects?. Maximum Marks of Maths paper is 200.**

1.02x – 4800 = 0.70x – 1600

x = 10000

Votes of the loser candidate = 5100 – 4800 = 300

Percentage votes of the loser candidate = 300/10000 * 100 = 3%**In a school there are 2000 students.

**A school has raised 75% of the amount it needs for a new building by receiving an average donation of Rs. 1200 from the parents of the students. The people already solicited represents the parents of 60% of the students. If the School is to raise exactly the amount needed for the new building, what should be the average donation from the remaining students to be solicited?**

A. Rs.800

B. Rs.900

C. Rs.850

D. Rs.600

E. Rs.720

**D. Rs.600****Explanation:**

Let the number of parents be x who has been asked for the donations.

People already solicited = 60% of x = 0.6x

Remaining people = 40% of x = 0.4x

Amount collected from the parents solicited= 1200 *0.6x = 720x

720x = 75%; Remaining amount = 25% = 240x

Thus, Average donations from remaining parents = 240x /0.4x = 600**The monthly income of Shyama and Kamal together is Rs.28000. The income of Shyama and Kamal is increased by 25% and 12.5% respectively. The new income of Kamal becomes 120% of the new salary of Shyama. What is the new income of Shyama?**

A. Rs.12000

B. Rs.18000

C. Rs.14000

D. Rs.16000

E. Rs.15000

**E. Rs.15000**

**Explanation:**

The monthly income of Shyama and Kamal => S + K = 28000 —(1)

Shyama’s income = x; Kamal’s income = 28000 – x.

K = 120/100 * S —(2)

S’s new income = (28000 – x)*112.5/100

K’s new income = x * 125/100

(28000 – x)*112.5/100 = x * 125/100

x = 12000

New Income of Shyama = 125% of 12000 = 15000**500 kg of ore contained a certain amount of iron. After the first blast furnace process, 200 kg of slag containing 12.5% of iron was removed. The percentage of iron in the remaining ore was found to be 20% more than the percentage in the original ore. How many kg of iron were there in the original 500 kg ore?**

A. 54.2

B. 58.5

C. 46.3

D. 42.4

E. 89.2

**E. 89.2.**

**Explanation:**

Initially ‘x’ kg of iron in 500 kg ore.

Iron in the 200 kg of removed =200*12.5/100= 25 kg.

The percentage of iron in the remaining ore was found to be 20% more than the percentage in the original ore

So (x-25)/300 = (120/100)*x/500

=> x – 25 = 18x/25

=> 7x = 625

=> x = 89.2
