a) Sketching                      
b) Painting
c) national craft              
d) national craft plus painting

c) 50 percent        
d) 70 percent
e) 60 percent

3. Ans-b

4. Ans-e
 X=25, -8
Y=25, 6
No relation

5. Ans-a
Manhours spent in sketching= 430 +100=530
Option a- 100+430=530
Option b-430
Option c-280+150=430
Option d-280+430=710

6. Ans-c
Total work = ( (100+430+280)+(80+100+150)=1140
%=330/1140  *100= 28.94 %=30%

7. Ans-c
Total manhours spent  international= 330
Option a- 80+100=180
Option b -400
Option c-280
Option d-400/2=200
Option e-100

8. Ans-a
Total working hours= 1140
Now it is given 100 hours is equal to 1140 man hours.
Hence 50 hours will be equal to (1140/100)x50= 570 manhours
Option a shows manhours nearest to it=430+100=530

9. Ans-b
Total national work= 100+430+280=810
50% national work is carried international =405
Distribution of efforts=180:530:430=18:53:43
Efforts distributed to crafts=43/114 X 405= 153 man hours
national craftwork= 0.5x280=140
Proportion of craft carried out national= 140/(140+140+153)   x 100= 32.33=30 %

10. Ans-a
Ratio of distribution of efforts=18:53:43
50 % of 810 or 405 manhours is carried international.
Then distribution of international work=
80+[(18/114)x405],100+[(43/114)x405], 140+[(43/114)x405)]=144,288,293
Amount of sketching done= 288=[430x50/100]=503
Amount of craftdone= 293=(270x50/100]=433
Since amount of sketching done is greater than amount of craft, hence option a is correct.
