Answers and Explanations

Answer 1: (a)

Let the total Workforce = 100.

Workforce in Production = 49.

22% of Production = 22% of 49 = 10.78

So 10.78 workers in Hyderabad are in production department.

Total workforce in Hyderabad = 28

Therefore the percentage = (10.78/28) x 100 = 38.5%

The correct option is (a)

Answer 2: (d)

As percentage of supervisors posted in Calcutta region is not given so data is insufficient. The correct option is (d)

Answer 3: (b)

Total Officers in company is 68700 × 9/100 = 6183

The number of employees in the Administration and Accounts department = 11% of 6183 = 680.13

The number of employees in Administration and Accounts department posted in Calcutta = 75% of 680.13 = 510

So the required percentage = (510/6183) × 100 = 8.25%

The correct option is (b)

Answer 4: (c)

The total workforce at Hyderabad = 28% of 68700 = 19236

The total workforce at Mumbai = 22% of 68700 = 15114

The total workforce at Calcutta = 15% of 68700 = 10305

So the new recruitment = 12% of (19236 + 15114) = 12% of 34350 = 4122

The total retirement = 6% of 10305 = 618.3

Hence the total workforce = 68700 + 4122 – 618.3 = 72203.7 = 72204

The correct option is (c)
