1. d
Solution: Average of Q-6: (8.5+7.5+4.5+23.5+9.5+9.5)/6=63/6=10.5
Average of Q-3: (7.25+6.25+4.5+22.5+8.25+8.25)/6= 57/6=9.50
Required Difference = 10.50 - 9.50 = 1.00
2. b
Solution: Average of MSF: (9.5+9.75+8.25+8.75+8.25+9.50)/6=54/6=9
Average of Reverse Repo Rate: (6.50+5.25+6.25+6.75+6.75)/6= 39/6=6.50
Required Sum = 9+6.50=15.50
3. c
Solution: Sum of Repo Rate:  (7.50+6.25+7.25+7.75+7.75+8.5) =45.00
Sum of Reverse Repo Rate: (6.50+5.25+6.25+6.75+6.75+7.5) =39.00
Required Ratio = 45.00:39.00= 45:39= 15:13
4. a
Solution: Sum of Repo Rates:  (7.50+6.25+7.25+7.75+7.75+8.5) =45.00
Sum of SLR: (22.50+23+22.50+23.50+22+23.50) =137.00
Required %= (45.00/137.00) x100= 32.846=32.85 (approx)
5. c
Solution: Sum of Rates in Q-4: (7.75+6.75+4.75+23.50+8.75+8.75) =60.25
Sum of Rates in Q-1: (7.50+6.50+4.25+22.50+9.50+9.50) =59.75
Required %= (60.25/59.75) x100= 100.836=100.84 (approx)

All the Best.
