(a) 3 lakh

(b) 3.50 lakh

(c) 6 lakh

(d) 5 lakh

(e) None of these

**5. Population of**

state âEâ in 2012 was what fraction of its population in 2014?

(a) 2/3

(b) 4/5

(c) 5/4

(d) 3/2

(e) None of these

__Solutions:__

**1**. Let the population of state âFâ in 2013 = 100

Then population of state âFâ in 2014 = 150 (Since growth is

50%)

50%)

So, Required % = 100/150 Ă 100 Âť 67%

**2**. Population of state âBâ in the year 2014 =

5 Ă 155/100 135/100

Âť

10.50 lakh

10.50 lakh

**3.**C12/D12 = 2/3

and C12 = 2.50 Lakhs

So, C12 = 2.5 x 140/100 =

3.5 Lakhs

3.5 Lakhs

So we get, the population of D in 2013 = 3 x 3.50/2

= 5.25 Lakhs

= 5.25 Lakhs

**4.**Population of state âBâ in 2012

= 4 Ă 100 Ă 100/155 Ă 135= Population

of D in 2012

of D in 2012

Population of state âDâ in 2014 = 1Ă100Ă100Ă160Ă170/100Ă100Ă155Ă135

= 5 lakhs

**5**. Suppose population of state E in 2012 = 100

Then population of state E in 2013 = 125

*since 25% growth

And population of state E in 2014 = 125 (120/100)

= 150

= 150

*since 20% growth

So, required ratio = 100/150 = 2/3
