On the first test of the semester, kiran scored a 60. On the last test of the semester, kiran scored 75%. By what percent did kiran's score improve?

A15%

B20%

C35%

D25%

=> 0.6X = 15
=> X=15/0.6 = 25%

A37

B68

C75

D100

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let the maximum marks be x.
From the given statement pass percentage is 42% - 12% = 30%
By hypothesis, 30% of x - 20% of x = 10 (marks)
i.e., 10% of x = 10
Therefore, x = 100 marks.

5/9 part of the population in a village are males. If 30% of the males are married, the percentage of unmarried females in the total population is:

A(240/9)%

B(250/9)%

C(251/9)%

DNone of these

Married males = 30% of (5/9)x = x/6
Married females = x/6
Total females = (x-(5/9)x)=4x/9
Unmarried females = (4x/9 - x/6) = 5x/18
Required percentage = (5x/18 * 1/x * 100) = (250/9)%

In an election contested by two parties, Party D secured 12% of the total votes more than Party R. If party R got 132,000 votes, by how many votes did it lose the election?

A46000

B33000

C16000

D36000

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let the percentage of the total votes secured by Party D be x%
Then the percentage of total votes secured by Party R = (x â€“ 12)%
As there are only two parties contesting in the election, the sum total of the votes secured by the
two parties should total up to 100%
i.e., x + x â€“ 12 = 100
2x â€“ 12 = 100
or 2x = 112 or x = 56%.
If Party D got 56% of the votes, then Party got (56 â€“ 12) = 44% of the total votes.
44% of the total votes = 132,000 i.e. 44/100 * T = 132,000
T = (132000 * 100)/44 = 300000 votes.
The margin by which Party R lost the election = 12% of the total votes
= 12% of 300000 = 36000.
