SOLUTIONS:

1.The percentage of total number of students who have taken all the three subjects to the total number of students in the institute= (2584/19000) × 100=13.6

2.∴The total no. of students in the institute who have taken only Cookery as their subject
= 1900 + 931 + 304
= 3135

3.The percentage of the total no. of students from the discipline of Arts who took Social Work to the total no. of students taking the same subject from the discipline of Science
= (1140/2660) ×100
= 42.857
≈ 43

4.∴The total number of students who have taken Social Work and Physical Training from all the three disciplines = 1140 + 1425 + 2926 + 1862 + 2660 + 3268
= 13281

5.The ratio of the total number of students from the discipline of Commerce to those from of Science= [19000 × (35/100)] : [19000 × (40/100)]
= 35 : 40
= 7 : 8

Solutions—

Number of employees of company C who speak all the three languages= 700-(180+240+150) = 130

Now the number of employees of company C who speak Hindi and English but not Spanish= 600- (240+130+60) = 170

Number of employees of company B who speak Hindi and English but not Spanish= 580- (60+150+240) = 130
Number of employees of company B who speak Hindi and Spanish but not English= 700-(180+150+240)= 130

Total number of employees of company B any two of three languages = 130+130+150 = 410.

Number of employees of company A who speak English and Spanish but not Hindi= 125
Number of employees of company C who speak only Hindi = 50

Required % = 125-50/50*100

= 150%

Required difference= 130-60 = 70

Number of employees in company B= 700+60+130+150= 1040
Number of employees in company C = 700+60+170+50= 980

Required% = 1040-980/980*100

Directions (11-15) :

No of students in section III from school C = x

Total number of students in school C = x + 8 + 12 = 20 + x

Number of possible ways = 8C1 * 12C1 * xC1 * (20 + x – 3) C1 = 25920

8 * 12 * x * (17+x) = 25920

17x + x2 = 270

= > x2 + 17x – 270 = 0

= > x2 – 10x + 27x – 270 = 0

= > x (x – 10) + 27 (x – 10) = 0

= > x = 10, – 27 (Eliminate the –Ve value)

Number of students in section III from school C = 10

Number of students in section III from school E = y

Total number of students in school E = (y + 12 + 18)

= y + 30

Number of possible ways = yC1 * 30C1 + yC2 = 195

= > y * 30 + (y*(y-1)/(1 *2)) = 195

= > 30y + (y2 – y)/2 = 195

= > 60y + y2 – y = 390

= > y2 + 59y – 390 = 0

= > y2 + 65y – 6y – 390 = 0

= > y (y + 65) – 6 (y + 65) = 0

= > (y + 65) (y – 6) = 0

= > y = 6, -65 (Eliminate –Ve value)

Total number of students in school E = 30 + 6 = 36

Required number of ways = 12C2 * 18C1 * 6C2

= (12*11 / 1*2) *18 *(6*5 / 1*2)

= 6*11*18*3*5

= 17820

From I,

Number of students in section II from school A = n

Number of handshakes = nC2 = 105

> [n*(n -1)] / (1 * 2) = 105

= > n2 – n = 210

= > n2 – n – 210 = 0

= > n2 – 15n + 14n – 210 = 0

= > (n – 15) (n – 14) = 0

= > n = 15, -14 (Eliminate –Ve value)

From statement I, We have to find only number of students in section II from school A. We can’t find the total number of students.

Hence, statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the given question.

From II,

Total number of students in school A = x

Number of handshakes = xC2 = 780

= > x * (x – 1)/1*2 = 780

= > x2 – x = 780*2

= > x2 – x – 1560 = 0

= > x2 – 40x + 39x – 1560 = 0

= > x (x – 40) + 39 (x – 40) = 0

= > (x – 40) (x + 39) = 0

= > x = 40, -39 (Eliminate –Ve value)

Total number of students in school A is 40.

Hence, Statement II alone is sufficient to answer the given question.

Number of students in section II from school B = x

Number of students in section III from school B = 75/100 * x

= 3x/4

Total number of students in section II and III from school B = 20 – 6 = 14

= > x + 3x/4 = 14

= > 7x/4 = 14

= > x = 8

Number of students in section III from school B = 8 * 75/100 = 6

Quantity I:

Number of ways = 6C1*8C1*6C1*(20-3)C2

= 6 * 8 * 6 *(17*16/1*2)

= 6*8*6*17*8

= 39168

Quantity II: In committee Q, five students is to be formed from school B such that committee contains at least one student from section I.

Number of ways = 6C1*14C4 + 6C2*14C3 + 6C3*14C2 + 6C4*14C1 + 6C5

= 6006 + 5460 + 1820 + 210 + 6

= 13502

Hence, Quantity I > Quantity II

Number of ways in school D = 8C3

= 8*7*6 / 1*2*3 = 56

Number of ways in school B = 6C3

= 6*5*4 / 1*2*3 = 20

Required percentage = (56/20) * 100 = 280%

Directions (16 – 20):

Ratio of number of Blue colour balls in bag A, B and C = 72: 120: 168 = 3: 5: 7

Let number of blue balls in bag A, B and C is 3x, 5x and 7x respectively.

Number of yellow balls in bag A = 3x * (5/3) = 5x

Total balls in bag A = (40 + 3x + 5x) = (40 + 8x)

Probability when two balls are selected from bag A and out of which one Red and other is Blue = [(40C1 * 3xC1)/(40 + 8x)C2] = 20/119

120x/(20 + 4x)(39 + 8x) = 20/119

3x/(5 + x)(39 + 8x) = 2/119

357x = 16x2 + 158x + 390

16x2 – 199x + 390 = 0

16x2 – 160x – 39x + 390 = 0

16x (x – 10) – 39 (x – 10) = 0

(16x – 39) (x – 10) = 0

= > x = 10, 39/16 (Eliminate the fraction value)

x = 10

Number of Blue balls in bag A = 3x = 30

Number of Yellow balls in bag A = 5x = 50

Total balls in bag A = 40 + 30 + 50 = 120

Number of Blue balls in bag B = 5x = 50

Number of Blue balls in bag C = 7x = 70

Let the number of yellow balls in bag B = b

Total balls in bag B = (60 + 50 + b) = (110 + b)

Probability when two Blue balls are selected from bag B = 50C2/(110 + b)C2

= (49/447)

(50 * 49)/[(110 + b)(110 + b – 1)] = 49/447

50/[(110 + b) (109 + b)] = 1/447

22350 = 11990 + 110b + 109b + b2

22350 = 11990 + 219b + b2

b2 + 219b – 10360 = 0

b2 + 259b – 40b – 10360 = 0

(b + 259) (b – 40) = 0

= > b = 40, -259 (Eliminate –ve value)

b = 40

Number of yellow balls in bag B = b = 40

Total balls in bag B = 60 + 50 + 40 = 150

Let the number of yellow balls in bag C = c

Probability of selecting a Blue ball from bag B = 50/150 = 1/3

Total balls in bag C = (20 + 70 + c) = (90 + c)

Probability of selecting a Blue ball from bag C = 70/(90 + c)

According to the question:

[70/(90 + c)] – (1/3) = 1/4

70/(90 + c) = 7/12

10/(90 + c) = 1/12

120 = 90 + c

c = 30

Number of yellow balls in bag C = c = 30

Total balls in bag C = 20 + 70 + 30 = 120

Probability of selecting two red balls from bag A = 40C2/120C2

= (20 * 39)/(60/119) = (13/119)

Probability of selecting one yellow ball from bag B = 40/150 = (4/15)

Probability of selecting one blue ball from bag C = 70/120 = (7/12)

Required probability = (13/119) * (4/15) * (7/12) = (13/765)

Probability of selecting two Blue colour balls from bag A = 30C2/120C2 = (29/476)

Probability of selecting either a red colour ball or a blue colour ball from bag B

= (60/150) + (50/150) = (11/15)

Required difference = (11/15) – (29/476) = (5236 – 435)/7140

= (4801/7140)

Probability of selecting one blue colour ball from bag A = (30/120) = (1/4)

Probability of selecting one blue colour ball from bag B = (50/150) = (1/3)

Difference = (1/3) – (1/4) = (1/12)

Probability of selecting one red colour ball from bag B = (60/150) = (2/5)

Probability of selecting one red colour ball from bag C = (20/120) = (1/6)

Difference = (2/5) – (1/6) = (7/30)

Required per cent = [{(7/30) – (1/12)}/(7/30)] * 100 = (450/7)%

Probability that both the selected balls from bag B and C are of red colour

= (60/150) * (20/120) = (1/15)

Probability that both the selected balls from bag B and C are of blue colour

= (50/150) * (70/120) = (7/36)

Probability that both the selected balls from bag B and C are of yellow colour

= (40/150) * (30/120) = (1/15)

Total probability = (1/15) + (7/36) + (1/15) = (59/180)

After transfer, number of red colour balls in bag B = 60 – [83(1/3)% of 60]

= 10

After transfer, number of yellow colour balls in bag B = (40 + p)

Total balls in bag B after transfer = 10 + 50 + (40 + p) = (100 + p)

After transfer, number of red colour balls in bag C = 20 + [83(1/3)% of 60]

= 70

After transfer, number of yellow colour balls in bag C = (30 – p)

Total balls in bag C after transfer = 70 + 70 + (30 – p) = (170 – p)

Probability of selecting a red colour ball from bag B = [10/(100 + p)]

Probability of selecting a blue colour ball from bag C = [70/(170 – p)]

According to the question:

[10/(100 + p)] + [70/(170 – p)] = (11/20)

20[10(170 – p) + 70(100 + p)] = 11(100 + p)(170 – p)

20[1700 – 10p + 7000 + 70p) = 11(17000 + 70p – p2)

174000 + 1200p = 187000 + 770p – 11p2

11p2 + 430p – 13000 = 0

11p2 – 220p + 650p – 13000 = 0

11p (p – 20) + 650 (p – 20) = 0
