### Solutions :

Data Interpretation Problem I

1.
Qualified female candidates from State P in 2008 = 126

Male : Female = 11 : 7

=> Qualified male candidates =(11/7) x 126 = 198

=> Total qualified candidates = 198 + 126 = 324

=> Number of candidates appeared at the exam = (326/60) x 100 = 540

2.

Let the number of candidates who appeared at the exam in 206 from state Q = x

=> Number of candidates who appeared in 2007 = 2x

Total qualified candidates who appeared in 2007 = 408

=> ((x x 30) / 100) + ((2x x 45) / 100) = 408

=> 30x + 90x = 40800

=> 120x = 40800

=> x =40800/120 = 340

3.

Qualified candidates from state P :

Year 2006 => ((450 x 60) / 100) = 270

Year 2007 => ((600 x 43) / 100) = 258

=> Required difference = 270 - 258 = 12

4.
Total qualified candidates from state Q in 2008, 2009 and 2010 = 3 x 210 = 630

Number of qualified candidates in 2008 and 2009

= ((280 x 60) / 100) + ((550 x 20) / 100) = 168 + 275 = 443

=> Number of qualified candidates in 2010 = 630 - 443 = 187

5.

Number of qualified candidates from state P in 2009 = ((480 x 70) / 100) = 336

Number of qualified candidates in 2010 = ((336/14) x 9) = 216

Data Interpretation Problem II

1.
People who travel by train B on Friday = ((200 x 120) / 100) = 240

=> Required ratio = 240 : 320  = 3 : 4

2.

Required difference

= (350 + 270) - (200 + 170)

= 620 - 370 = 250

3.

Required average

= (240 + 210 + 140 + 230) / 4 = 820 / 4 = 205

4.

Required percentage decrease = ((350 + 210) / 350) x 100

= 14000/350 = 40%

5.
People who travel by both trains :

Sunday => 270 + 310 = 580

Wednesday => 140 + 120 = 260

=> Required percent = ((580-260)/260) x 100

= 32000/260

This is approximately equal to 123
