Total number of employees = 1000 Number of female employees = (52/100)* 1000 = 520 Number of male employees = 480 Number of female employees in research = (40/100) * 520 = 208 Number of employees in research = (60/100)*1000 = 600 Number of male employees in research = 600 208 = 392 Number of male employees not in research = 480  392 = 88 Answer E

Total = 1000 Female = 52% = 520=> Male = 480 Female Research = 40% of 520 = 208 Total Research = 600 = Female Research+Male Research => Male research = 600208 = 392 Female = Female Research+Female No Research => Female No Research = 520208 = 312 Total No Reseach = 400 = Female No Research+Male No Research => Male No Research = 400312 = 88.

(A) 520 (B) 480 (C) 392 (D) 208 (E) 88 Females = 520 ; Males = 480 Research = 600 ; Non Research = 400 Females working in Research = 208 (ie, 40% of 520) ; Males working in Research = 392 (ie, 600  208 ) Males not working in Research = 88 ( ie, 480  392 ) Hence, answer will be (E)..

(A) 520 (B) 480 (C) 392 (D) 208 (E) 88 (from the matrix) 9% of 1000 = 90 (nearest 88) No need to calculate actual value for each entity.

(A) 520 (B) 480 (C) 392 (D) 208 (E) 88 We see that there are 1,000 x 0.52 = 520 females and 520 x 0.4 = 208 females work in research, and 1,000 x 0.6 = 600 total employees work in research; thus, 600  208 = 392 males work in research. Since there are 1,000  520 = 480 total males, 480  392 = 88 do not work in research. Answer: E

(A) 520 (B) 480 (C) 392 (D) 208 (E) 88 What is the weightage of such questions in GMAT? Do such questions appear frequently in real GMAT?
