2. Option A
Total number of employees working in the HR department = 800 × 5/100 = 40

Required ratio = 28:40 = 7:10

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

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

14. I have not started yet as m having my m.com xam. U juz check out insurance claim part of accounts n have ur basics clear. Go through income tax act 1961 n companies act 2013. Note down the important amendments of the aforesaid acts.

15. 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.
