The following table shows the total number of students in the Department of the Institute along with the percentage of Females and Male students. Answer questions 1 to 5 based on the data given below:
What is the ratio of the number of females in Civil and Electrical departments together to the number of males in the same Departments together?
311 : 270  
329 : 261  
411 : 469  
311 : 269

Question 1 Explanation:
Number of females in civil department is (35/100)*220 = 77
Number of females in electrical department is (65/100)*360 = 234
Total number of female students(civil+electrical)=77+234=311
Number of males in civil department is (65/100)*220 = 143
Number of males in electrical department is (35/100)*360 = 126
Total number of male students(civil+electrical)=143+126=269
The ratio of the number of females in Civil and Electrical departments together to the number of males in the same Departments together is 311 : 269
Number of females in electrical department is (65/100)*360 = 234
Total number of female students(civil+electrical)=77+234=311
Number of males in civil department is (65/100)*220 = 143
Number of males in electrical department is (35/100)*360 = 126
Total number of male students(civil+electrical)=143+126=269
The ratio of the number of females in Civil and Electrical departments together to the number of males in the same Departments together is 311 : 269

Question 5 Explanation:
Total number of male students in the Computer Department is (55/100)*840 = 462
Total number of male students in the Mining Department is is (60/100)*540 = 324
Total number of male students in the Computer and Mining Department together is 462+ 324= 786
Total number of male students in the Mining Department is is (60/100)*540 = 324
Total number of male students in the Computer and Mining Department together is 462+ 324= 786

Question 7 
A type of memory that holds the computer startup routine is
Cache  
RAM
 
DRAM  
ROM

Question 10 
In a 100 meters race, A beat B by 10 meter or 2 second. What is the speed of A?
5 Km/h  
10 Km/h  
15 Km/h
 
20 Km/h

Question 10 Explanation:
When A completes 100m, B is at 90m which is 10m behind.Now A beats B by 2 secs.
This means B takes 2 more seconds to complete the race
As B is 10m behind when A completes the race, so B takes 2 secs to complete 10m
Speed of B = 5m/s
Total time of B = 100/5 = 20 secs
Time of A = 20  2 = 18 seconds
Speed of A = 100/18 = 5.555
This means B takes 2 more seconds to complete the race
As B is 10m behind when A completes the race, so B takes 2 secs to complete 10m
Speed of B = 5m/s
Total time of B = 100/5 = 20 secs
Time of A = 20  2 = 18 seconds
Speed of A = 100/18 = 5.555
