(i) Total number of students obtaining less than 20 marks = 27 + 12 = 39
The cost off one  work book = Rs 5.
∴ The cost of 30 work books = 39 × 5
= Rs. 195.
The cost off one  work book = Rs 5.
∴ The cost of 30 work books = 39 × 5
= Rs. 195.
(ii) The number of students belonging to the highest mark group = 17
The cost of a prize = 10.
∴ The cost of 17 prizes = 10 × 7
= Rs. 170
The cost of a prize = 10.
∴ The cost of 17 prizes = 10 × 7
= Rs. 170
(iii) The number of students belonging to the lowest mark group = 27
The number of problems solved by 1 student = 5
∴ The total number of problems solved by 27 students = 5 × 27 = 135.
∴ The total number of problems solved by 27 students = 5 × 27 = 135.
(iv) (a) Total number of students = 100
The number of students in range = 40  49 = 17.
% of students obtaining marks ranging
The number of students in range = 40  49 = 17.
% of students obtaining marks ranging
40  49 = 17/100 × 100 = 17%
So, the given statement is true.
So, the given statement is true.
(b) The given statement is false (False).
(v) No. of students getting more than 20 marks = 39

Solution
(i) Total number of students have their heights more than 149 cm = 16 + 10 + 5 = 31 .
The percentage of the total number of students has their heights more than 149 cm
= 31/50 × 100 = 31 × 2 = 62 %
The percentage of the total number of students has their heights more than 149 cm
= 31/50 × 100 = 31 × 2 = 62 %
(ii) The number of students in the range of maximum height of the class is 5.
(iii) Total number of students below height of 150cm = 7 + 12 = 19
The cost of the tonic for each student = Rs. 55
The cost of the tonic for 19 student = 19 × 55 = Rs 1045
The cost of the tonic for each student = Rs. 55
The cost of the tonic for 19 student = 19 × 55 = Rs 1045
(iv) The number of students are in the range of shortest height of the class = 7.
(v) (a) True
(b) False
(c) Total number of students in the range of 145  154
= 12 + 17 = 29

(viii) (a) Total number of newspaper were published in Malayalam and Marathi
= 1400 + 1400 = 2800.
Number of newspaper were published in English = 3400
∴The number of newspapers published in Malayalam and Marathi together is less than those published in English so the given statement is true.
(b) Number of news. Papers published in Telugu = 400
Number of newspaper published in Tamil = 1000
∴The number of newspapers published in Telugu is more less than those published in
Tamil.
So, the given statement is false.
