**Q.A:**

**B****D****B****C****B**

**Q.B) **

**E. S**

Company P : ([7/12 * (2568)] / 2568)*100 = 58.33%

Company Q : ([5/16 * (2880)] / 2880)*100 = 31.25%

Company R : ([11/21 * (2310)] / 2310)*100 = 52.38%

Company S : ([2/5 * (3575)] / 3575)*100 = 40%

Company T : ([6/13 * (2054)] / 2054)*100 = 46.15%

Company U : ([21/41 * (2788)] / 2788)*100 = 51.21%

Company V : ([7/15 * (3720)] / 3720)*100 = 46.66%

Company W : ([5/14 * (3360)] / 3360)*100 = 35.71%

**D. 69 : 44**

= [2880 * (11/16)/ 2310 * (11/21) + 3360 * (9/14)/ 3575 * (2/5)] = (1980 + 2160)/(1210 + 1430) = 414/264 = 69:44**C. 4256**

Average number of post graduate employees in companies P, Q and S = (1926 + 1872 + 2145)/3 = 5943/3 = 1981

Average number of post graduate employees in companies U, V and W = (2091 + 2046 + 2688)/3 = 6875/3 = 2275

Difference = 2275 + 1981 = 4256**D. U**

Company P – 2568/16 = 160.5 ; Company Q – 2880/18 = 160

Company R – 2310/14 = 165 ; Company S – 3575/22 = 162.5
