c) 1585

d) 1865

e) 1687

**5) Suppose there is another college X in which arts students are 2/5 ^{th} of arts student in college A and engineering student in college X is 40% of total students of college D then what is the total students in X?**

a) 1050

b) 1205

c) 1640

d) 1550

e) 4520

**Answers :**

**1) Answer: C**

Total number of engineering student in college A= (100-35) % of 1500

= (65/100)*1500=975

Given that the civil engineering students are 50% more than the mechanical engineering students.

Let x be the number of mechanical engineering students in college A.

Then number of civil engineering students in college A=x+50% of x= 150% of x

So, x+(150/100)x=975

(250/100)x=975

x=390

So, the no of mechanical engineering students= 390

The number of civil engineering students=585

Given that the ratio of boys and girls in college A for civil engineering students=4:1

So, the difference of boys and girls in mechanical students= (3/5)*585=351

**2) Answer: D**

Given that, the total engineering student in college E = 525

Let the number of mechanical engineering students in college E be X.

Then the number of civil engineering student in college E= X- 12 ½% of X= 87 ½% of X

Therefore, X + 87 ½% of X= 525

187 ½% of X=525

X=280

So, the number of mechanical engineering students in college E=280

And the number of civil engineering students in college E=525-280=245

The number of engineering student in college D = 735

The number of civil engineering in college D= (3/5)*735=441

Required ratio=441:245

**3) Answer: D**

Number of arts student in college A=(35/100)*1500=525

Number of arts student in college B = 525+375= 900

Let the total number of students in college B be X.

We know that, there are 40% of students in college B are arts.

So, (40/100)*X=900

X=2250

(i.e) Total number of students in college B=2250

Required percent= [(2250-2100)/2100]*100=7 1/7%

**4) Answer: D**

Given that, total student in college C = 1380 and total arts student in college C = total engineering students in college C.

So, total arts student + total engineering student =1380

Total arts student + total arts student=1380

Therefore, total arts student=690

Number of arts boys in college C= (5/6)*690=575

If 20% of boys are transferred to college E, then the total students in college E=1750 + (20/100)*575=1865

**5) Answer: A**

Total students in X= [(2/5)*(35/100)*1500] + [(40/100)*2100]

=210+840

=1050
