1. Answer: (c) 25/3 % decrease

Explanation:-
Percentage of Germany in 2014 = 46.8 x 100/360
= 7.42 %
And percentage of Germany in 2013 = 54 x 100/360
= 15%
Then, decrease percentage = 15  – 7.42
=  7.58 % or 25/3%
Hence, the answer is (c) 25/3%.

2. Answer: (d) None of these

Explanation:-

Foreign collaborations approved with UK in 2013 = 50.4
Foreign collaboration approved with UK in 2014  = 43.2
Then, the ratio of the number of foreign collaborations approved with UK in 2013 and 2014 = 50.4/43.2
= 504/432
= 126/108
= 21/18
= 7/6
Hence, the answer is (d) none of these.

Explanation:-

Foreign collaborations approved with USA in 2013 = 1200 x 64.8/360
= 216
Foreign collaborations approved with USA in 2014 = 1500  x 75.5/360
= 314.58
Then, increased collaboration approved with USA from 2013 to 2014 = 314.58 – 216
= 98.58
=  99   (approximately)
Hence, the answer is (b) 99.
