A college has a total of 800 MCA students, 80% of whom are in class MCA-III and remaining are equally divided between class MCA-I and class MCA-II. The proportion of female students and the proportion of vegetarian students in the college are indicated as under through the table. Answer questions 4 to 6 based on this information.

For example, in the table above, 0.525 is the total proportion of female students and 0.53 is the total proportion of vegetarian students in the college.

1. What is the percentage of female students in class MCA-III ?

(A) 40

(B) 45

(C) 50

(D) 55

1. What is the percentage of vegetarian students in class MCA-I?

(A) 40

(B) 45

(C) 50

(D) 55

Total Students = 800.

No. of students in MCA III = 80% of 800 = 640.

Rest Students = 800 – 640 = 160.

Rest students are divided equally into class MCA I & MCA II. So,

No. of students in class 12 = 160/2 = 80.

Now, total vegetarian = 53%

No. of Total vegetarian = 53% of 800 = 424.

55% of MCA III students are vegetarian.

No. of vegetarian in MCA III = 55% of 640 = 352.

No. vegetarian in MCA II = 50% of 80 = 40

Thus, no. of vegetarian in MCA I,

= 424 352 – 40 = 32.

Thus,

In class MCA I total vegetarian = 32.

So, % of vegetarian = (32/800) * 100 = 40%.

1. How many total nonvegetarian students are there in class MCA-I and class MCA-II?

(A) 72

(B) 88

(C) 78

(D)92
