### DI Question for Bank PO Answers 1 to 5

Number of female employees from IT = 800

Number of male employees from IT = 2/1 * 800 = 1600

Number of male employees from Finance = 800 + 80 = 880

Number of female employees from Finance = 3/2 * 880 = 1320

Number of male employees from HR = 800 + 160 = 960

Number of female employees from HR = 2/3 * 960 = 640

Number of female employees from sales = 480

Total number of female employees = 800 + 1320 + 640 + 480 = 3240

Total number of male employees = 3240 + 800 = 4040

Number of male employees from Sales = 4040 – 1600 – 880 – 960 = 600 #### Question 1 Answer is C

Finance = 2200

HR = 1600

Difference = 2200 – 1600 = 600

#### Question 2 Answer is C

60% of the male employees from IT department = 60/100 * 1600 = 960

Now the total male employees from IT department = 1600 * 40/100 = 640

Now the total number of male employees from sales department = 600 + 960

= 1560

55% of the female employees from sales department = 480 * 55/100 = 264

Now the female employees from sales department = 480 * 45/100 = 216

Total number of employees from sales department = 216 + 1560 = 1776

Total number of employees from IT department = 640 + 264 + 800 = 1704

Required ratio = 1704: 1776 = 213: 222

= 71: 74

#### Question 3 Answer is B

Total number of employees from IT = 2400

Total number of employees from HR = 1600

Total number of employees from sales = 1080

Total number of employees from Finance = 2200

Average = (2400 + 2200 + 1080 + 1600)/4 = 1820

#### Question 4 Answer is C

Number of male employees from finance = 880 * 80/100 = 704

Number of female employees from finance = 1320 * 80/100 = 1056

Total employees from finance

#### Question 5 Answer is C

Total number of male employees = 1600 + 880 + 600 + 960 = 4040

Total number of female employees = 800 + 1320 + 480 + 640 = 3240

Difference = 4040 – 3240 = 800

= 704 + 1056 = 1760

### DI Question for Bank PO Answers 11 to 15

#### Question 11 Answer is B

Total mobiles exported by company D and F= 35000*2= 70000

Mobile exported by company D in 2014= 30/100* 35000= 10500

Mobile exported by company D in 2015= 10500/2= 5250

So,

Mobile exported by company F= 70000- 5250= 64750

Percentage of production exported by company F in 2015

= > (64750/90000)*100 = 72%

#### Question 12 Answer is B

Mobile exported by company E in 2015 = 40000*(70/100) = 28000

Mobile exported by company E in 2014 = 50000- 28000 = 22000

Mobile exported by company E in 2016 = (22000/11)*5 = 10000

Number of mobiles produced by company E = (10000/80)*100 = 12500

#### Question 13 Answer is D

Total number of mobiles exported by company A in 2014 and 2015

= 40/100* 20000 + 60/100* 50000

= 8000 + 30000

= 38000

Mobile exported by company C in 2014 and 2015= 38000 *3/2= 57000

Mobile exported by company C in 2015

= 57000 – (26000* 20/100)

= 51800

So,

Percentage of export by company C

= (51800/80000)*100 = 64.75 %

#### Question 14 Answer is D

Number of defective mobile exported by B in 2014

= 45000*42/100* 20/100=3780

Number of defective mobiles exported by company B in 2015= 3780/7* 5= 2700

Number of mobiles exported by company B= 2700/13.5 * 100= 20000

So,

Percentage of mobile exported by company B in 2015

= > (20000*100)/30000 = 66.66 % = 67 %

#### Question 15 Answer is C

Mobile exported by A, B and D in 2014

= 40*20000/100 + 42* 45000/100 + 30* 35000/100

= 8000 + 18900 + 10500

= 37400

Mobile exported by company A and E in 2015

= 50000*60/100 + 70*40000/100

= 30000 + 28000

= 58000

Required percentage = (37400*100)/58000 = 65%
