1. Find total number of females qualified from states C and D together.
2. Find number of male candidates qualified from state B.
3. Which of the following pair of states have equal number of qualified male candidates?
a) C,G b) B,F c) C,E d) None of these.
4. What is the total number of candidates qualified from states F and G together?
Solution: Total number of candidates = 2 lakh
Study the above chart and table first and calculate the things you require to solve the questions just as follows:

For A = Candidate appeared = `14`% of `2,00,000` = `28,000`
Out of `28,000` `50`% qualifies the exam = `50`% of `28,000` = `14,000`
Now, ratio of male and female = `4`:`3`
Therefore, number of males qualified = `(14,000) times 4/7` =` 8,000`
Number of females qualified = `14,000`  `8,000` = `6,000`
Similarly I calculate for others. Now using this table, we can easily answer the questions
1. Total number of females qualified from states C and D together = `2200 + 6300`
⇒`8500`
2. Number of male candidates qualified from state B = `17100`
3. No two states have equal number of qualified male candidates.
4. Total number of candidates qualified from states F and G together = `22,000` + `8000`
⇒`30,000`
Note:You don't need to make the above table. I just calculate everything to make you understand. Do the required calculations only.
