1. If only 10th pass students are eligible for group-D exam then total number of students who applied for group-D exam from Bihar is what percent of total number of students who have qualification of degree from MP and Jharkhand together? It is given that total number of students from Bihar who applied for various posts in RRB is 95,500.
A. 13[latex] \frac{12} {13}[/latex]%
B. 26[latex] \frac{12} {13}[/latex]%
C. 24[latex] \frac{12} {13}[/latex]%
D. 22[latex] \frac{12} {13}[/latex]%
E. 23%
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
No. of students from Bihar having 10th qualification
= 95,500 – (12,500 + 16,400 + 24,000 + 32,100) = 10,500
∴ Required percentage
= [latex] \frac{10,500} {24,600 + 14,400}[/latex] x 100
= [latex] \frac{10,500} {390}[/latex]
= [latex] \frac{350} {13}[/latex]
= 26[latex] \frac{12} {13}[/latex]%
2. If only degree holders are eligible for ALP post then find the average number of students who have applied for ALP post from all the states together.
A. 26,750
B. 28,450
C. 27,850
D. 28,750
E. 27,580
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
Required average number of students
= [latex] \frac{1} {6}[/latex] x (32,100 + 72,500 + 24,600 + 16,500 + 14,400 + 12,400)
= [latex] \frac{1} {6}[/latex] x 1,72,500
= 28,750
3. According to RRB, only those candidates who have qualification of both ITI & higher qualification can apply for the post of Technician then find the total number of students who has applied for the post of Technician from all the states together. It is given that the number of students who have (ITI + Diploma) qualification from Assam is 45% of number of students from Bihar having same qualifications as that of students from Assam.
A. 90,400
B. 87,500
C. 95,400
D. Can’t be determined
E. 1,30,200
Answer: Option E
Explanation:
24000 + 54600 + 16400 + 12000 + 12400 + 45% of 24000 = 130200
4. If number of students having (10th + ITI) qualification from MP is 25% more than that from Assam having same qualification then total number of students having (10th + ITI) from these two states is what percent of total number of students having (10th + ITI) from all the six states together? It is given that total number of students from Assam having (10th + ITI) qualification is 10,000
A. 28[latex] \frac{22} {101}[/latex]%
B. 22[latex] \frac{28} {101}[/latex]%
C. 26[latex] \frac{28} {101}[/latex]%
D. 22[latex] \frac{38} {101}[/latex]%
E. 28[latex] \frac{38} {101}[/latex]%
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
No. of students from MP and Assam together having (10th + ITI) qualification
10000 + [latex] \frac{5} {4}[/latex] x 10000 = 22,500
Total students from all the six states together having (10th + ITI) qualification
= 16,400 + 42,000 + 12,500 + 10,500 + 9,600 + 10,000 = 1,01,000
∴ Required percentage
= [latex] \frac{22,500} {1,01,000}[/latex] x 100
= 22[latex] \frac{28} {101}[/latex]
5. If total number of students having 12th qualification from UP is 100% more than that from Gujrat and Jharkhand together having same qualification, then what is the total number of students having 12th qualification from U.P. It is given that the ratio of number of students from Gujrat and Jharkhand having 12th qualification is 8 : 7 and total number of students having 12th qualification from all the states is 85,700.
A. 36,000
B. 45,000
C. 24,000
D. 54,000
E. 32,000
Answer: Option A
Explanation:
Let no. of students from Gujrat and Jharkand having 12th qualification is 8x and 7x respectively.
8x + 7x + [latex] \frac{200} {100}[/latex] × (8x + 7x) + 12,500 + 10,000 + 9,200 = 85,700
⇒ x = 1,200
∴ Required answer = 1200 × 30 = 36,000
