Answers:

1.  Option E
Total number of employees working in the marketing department = 800 × 24/100
 = 192
Required percentage = 165/192 × 100 = 85.94% = 86%

2. Option A
Total number of employees working in the HR department = 800 × 5/100 = 40
Total number of female employees working in the HR department = 40 – 12 = 28
Required ratio = 28:40 = 7:10

3. Option D
Total number of employees working in the Production department = 800 × 35/100 = 280
Required percentage = 245/280×100=87.5%

4. Option A
Total number of employees working in the IT department = 800 × 20/100 = 160
Total number of female employees working in the IT department = 160 – 74 = 86
Required percentage = 86/800 × 100 = 10.75%

5. Option B
Total number of employees working in the Marketing department = 800 × 24/100 = 192
Total number of female employees working in the Marketing department = 192 – 165 = 27
Required ratio = 165:27 = 55:9

  9. No.. its corect actualy
    Total = 192
    Males = 165
    Females = 192 - 165 = 27
    Hence ratio = 165 : 27 = 55 : 9

  13. Percentages indicated in the Pie Chart add up to 114%.
    30% - Accounts Department,
    35% - Production Department,
    5% - HR Department,
    20% - IT Department,
    24% - Marketing Department.
    30 + 35 + 5 + 20 + 24 = 114
    Incorrect Data leads to incorrect calculations.
