Solutions and explanation:

1.
The year 1993 there was an increase of 10% population of AP. and 12% of Bihar
The ratio is = 370000* 110/100 : 500000* 112/100
=è 407 : 560

2.
Total no of woman in AP is =370000* 6/10= 222000
Total no of woman in HP is =280000*4/7=160000
Required percentage = (222000/160000)*100=~126

3.
The total no of literate under graduates population in Assam= 300000*(7/90*(30/100)
=è 70000

4.
if 70% of the females are literate and 75% of the males are literate
female illiterate Haryana= (450000*4/9)*(30/100)
=è60000
male illiterate Haryana= (450000*5/9)*(25/100)
=è62500
Total no of illiterate population in Haryana=122500

5.
the ratio of literates in Assam to the literates in Bihar
=è 300000*7/9 : 500000*1/5
=è 21 : 45
=è 7 : 15 What's trending in BankExamsToday
