### Solutions:

1__5 : First complete the table with the help of the facts provided as shown below :

No. of females = 32

But 40% of the students were females.

. . Total no. of students = ( 100/40x32)

= 80

No.of male students = ( 80-32) = 48

. . No of male students who were average

= (1/3x 48) = 16

1 : No. of students who are both female and excellent = none.

2. Proportion of good students who are male

= 22/30 = 11/15 = 0.73

3. Proportion of female students who are good

= 8/32= 1/4 = 0.25

4. No. of students who are both male and good = 22.

5. Among average students, the ratio of male to female = 16 : 24 = 2: 3
