Q. Which country has the highest population growth rate?Growth Rate = \(\frac{Pop2025-Pop2001}{Pop2001}\)

(A) \(\frac{1,431-1,273}{1,273} = \frac{158}{1273}\)

(B) \(\frac{1.363-1,033}{1,033}= \frac{330}{1033}\)

(C) \(\frac{346-285}{285}= \frac{61}{285}\)

(D) \(\frac{252-206}{206}= \frac{46}{206}\)

(E) \(\frac{209-172}{172}= \frac{37}{172}\)

If you take A and B, numerator increased and denominator decreased in A compared to A.

Thus rule out A and Keep B aside.

C. 61 is between 4-5 times 285......i.e., its fraction is 1/4-1/5

D. 46 is between 4-5 times 206......i.e., its fraction is 1/4-1/5

E. 37(approx 40) is between 4-5 times 206......i.e., its fraction is 1/4-1/5

coming to B, 330 is nearly 3 times its denominator making fraction 1/3 which is definitely greater than 1/4-1/5(ruling out C, D and E).
