#### SOLUTION

Solution : C

C’s A2 = B’s 1 unit. From the table C.s 0.95 unit = A.s 1 unit = B.s 1.55 unit. when B.s unit is 1 C.s unit is 11.55×0.95 = 0.61. A2 = 0.61.

A12 = ?

A. 0.75
B. 0.98
C. 1.25
D. 0.88

#### SOLUTION

Solution : D

D’s 1 unit = E’s A12 unit. From the table D’s 1.25 unit = E.s 1.1 unit from these D.s 1 unit = 11.25×1.1 = 0.88 unit of E.
