  6. Directions(6-10): Read the following graph carefully and answer the questions given below: Delhi University offers two courses PG and PhD. The information regarding number of students applied for these two courses and among how many got selected from year 2004-2009 are shown by the graph given below:


  7. Average number of students got selected for PhD program is by what percent more/less the average number of students applied for PG programs.
    65% less
    77% less
    68% less
    72% less
    70% less
    Option D
    Average students selected for PhD program = (2160+4550+2850+4455+3402+3900)/6
    = 21317/6 = 3553 (approx)
    Average number of student applied for PG program
    = (8000+17000 +10000 +14000 +16500 +11000)/6
    = 76500/6 = 12750
    Required percentage = (12750 −3553)/12750 × 100 = 72% less

     

  8. Which year shows the highest quantum difference between the number of students applied and got selected for PhD programs.
    2008
    2006
    2009
    2007
    2005
    Option C
    Difference for year 2004 = 4000 − 2160 = 1840
    For year, 2005 = 13000 −4550 = 8450
    For year, 2006 = 6000 − 2850 = 3150
    For year, 2007 = 9000 − 4455 = 4545
    For year, 2008 = 13500 −3402 = 10098
    For year, 2009 = 15000 −3900 = 11100
    2009

    47 ∶ 14
    47 ∶ 10
    49 ∶ 12
    41 ∶ 10
    47 ∶ 13
    Option B
    Percentage increase in selected students in PG in 2005= (6035−1800)/1800 × 100 = 235%
    Percentage increase in number of applied students in PhD in 2008 = (13500 −9000)/9000 × 100 = 50%
    Required ratio = 235 ∶ 50 = 47 ∶ 10

     

  10. Find the ratio of Number of students selected in 2005, 2007 and 2009 for PhD course to number of students applied in 2004, 2006 and 2008 for same course.
    2647 ∶ 4400
    2551 ∶ 4300
    2577 ∶ 4700
    2581 ∶ 4700
    2581 ∶ 4100
    Option D
    Number of students selected in 2005, 2007 and 2009 for PhD course
    = 13000 × 35/100 +9000 × 49.5/100 + 15000 × 26/100
    = 4550 +4455 +3900 = 12905
    Number of students applied in 2004, 2006 and 2008 for PhD course
    = 4000 + 6000 +13500 = 23500
    Ratio = 12905 ∶ 23500 = 2581 ∶ 4700

     

  11. In PG program which year shows highest percentage increase/decrease in number of student selected over previous year?
    2006
    2009
    2007
    2005
    2008
    Option D
    Percentage increase/decrease in the number of selected students
    For year 2005 = 6035−1800/1800 × 100 = 235%
    For year 2006 = 6035−2350/6035 × 100 = 61%
    For year 2007 = 6370−2350/2350 × 100 = 171%
    For year 2008 = 9570−6370/6370 × 100 = 50%
    For year 2009 = 9570−5280/9570 × 100 = 44.8%
    2005
