Distribution of candidates who were enrolled for MBA entrance exam and the candidates (out of those enrolled) who passed the exam in different institutes:
1.
What percentage of candidates passed the Exam from institute T out of the total number of candidates enrolled from the same institute?
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Required percentage =  9% of 5700  x 100  % =  9 x 5700  x 100  % = 75%.  
8% of 8550  8% of 8550 
2.
Which institute has the highest percentage of candidates passed to the candidates enrolled?
Answer: Option
Explanation:
The percentage of candidates passed to candidates enrolled can be determined for each institute as under:
(i) P =  18% of 5700  x 100  % =  18 x 5700  x 100  % = 54.55%.  
22% of 8550  22 x 8550 
(ii) Q =  17% of 5700  x 100  %  = 75.56%.  
15% of 8550 
(iii) R =  13% of 5700  x 100  %  = 86.67%.  
10% of 8550 
(iv) S =  16% of 5700  x 100  %  = 62.75%.  
17% of 8550 
(v) T =  9% of 5700  x 100  %  = 75%.  
8% of 8550 
(vi) V =  15% of 5700  x 100  %  = 83.33%.  
12% of 8550 
(vii) X =  12% of 5700  x 100  %  = 50%.  
16% of 8550 
Highest of these is 86.67% corresponding to institute R.
3.
The number of candidates passed from institutes S and P together exceeds the number of candidates enrolled from institutes T and R together by:
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Required difference  = [(16% + 18%) of 5700]  [(8% + 10%) of 8550] 
= [(34% of 5700)  (18% of 8550)]  
= (1938  1539)  
= 399. 
4.
What is the percentage of candidates passed to the candidates enrolled for institutes Q and R together?
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Candidates passed from institutes Q and R together  = [(13% + 17%) of 5700] 
= 30% of 5700.  
Candidates enrolled from institutes Q and R together  = [(15% + 10%) of 8550] 
= 25% of 8550. 
Required Percentage 




= 80%. 
5.
What is the ratio of candidates passed to the candidates enrolled from institute P?
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Required ratio =  18% of 5700  =  18 x 5700  =  6  .  
22% of 8550  22 x 8550  11
