This problem is time consuming. Is there any trick to solve these problem. ? |

If we consider ( (5700/8550) *100) to be constant x, then we have to compare only the ratio of percentages. That could be easy enough ! |

As simple as. Passed no. /enrolled no. 1) 18/22 = 0.8181. 2) 17/15 = 1.1333. 3) 13/10 = 1.3. 4) 16/17 = 0.94. 5) 9/8 = 1.125. 6) 15/12 = 1.25. 7) 12/16 = 0.75. In above example 1.1333 is highest no. So answer will be 2 no. |

@Nishad Mullah : But here 1.25 is greater than 1.13. |

@Harkesh answer is (3) 1.3. which is right. @Nishad has the shortest way. I feel there is no way shorter than this. This set was time consuming. |

@Nishad Mullah's formula is best. By mistaken he wrote 1.1333 is highest number. The actual highest no.is 1.3, which is showing in his calculation. |

Difference b/w numerator and denominator is max. |

Check with options only. Q: 17/15 = 1.1333. R: 13/10 = 1.3. V: 15/12 = 1.25. T: 9/8 = 1.125. |

Pravin said: (Jan 14, 2017) | |

Q:17/15 =(1+7)/(1+5) = 8/6 = 1.13. R:13/10 =1.30. V:15/12 = 5/4 = 1.2. T:9/8 = 1.1. Also you need not calculate 2 digits as after decimal as its clear if u get anything below 1.3. |

Thanks for the best shortcut @Nishad. |

Gursheel said: (Mar 14, 2017) | |

Great work, thanks for shortcut @Nishad. |

@Pravin. 8/6= 1.3 not 1.13. |
