The percentage of candidates selected from U.P over those qualified from U.P is highest in the year?

[A]. 1997
[B]. 1998
[C]. 1999
[D]. 2001

Answer: Option B

Explanation:

The percentages of candidates selected from U.P. over those qualified from U.P. during different years are:

For 1997 = ( 78 x 100 ) % = 10.83%.
720

For 1998 = ( 85 x 100 ) % = 13.71%.
620

For 1999 = ( 48 x 100 ) % = 12%.
400

For 2000 = ( 70 x 100 ) % = 10.77%.
650

For 2001 = ( 80 x 100 ) % = 8.42%.
950

Clearly, this percentage is highest for the year 1998.

Simple we can solve this;

720-78 (72+6)members
620-85 (62+23 )mem
400-48 (40+8)mem
650-70 (65+5)mem
950-80 (here min selected are less than 10% 0f 950).

So, the answer is 1998 because 23 more members are selected than 10%of qualified (620).
