This is a lengthy question. But we will use simple technique

to solve this question.

We have to calculate the ratio of Qualified to appeared

for each state. So

Qualified candidates from A

Selected candidates from A

×

100

=

18

%

×

9000

15

%

×

45000

×

100

Qualified candidates from ASelected candidates from

A×100=18%×900015%×45000×100

But If you observe in the above equation, only 18% / 15%

changes for each state. Remaining values are constant.

Minimum percentage we get if numerator is small and

denominator is big.

For C it is 7/8 = 1/1.14 and for E it is 9/14 = 1/1.5

So for E denominator is big. So it has the ratio Minimum.

So Option D is correct.
