    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. 75
    Explanation
    In a SMC (School management committee), the percentage of actual parents will comprise at least 75%. This means that at least 75% of the shareholders or members of the company must be the actual parents of the child who is the subject of the SMC. This requirement ensures that the decision-making power and control of the company remains in the hands of the child's actual parents, providing them with the authority to make important decisions regarding the child's welfare and future.

      10

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      8

    • D.

      12

    Correct Answer
    C. 8
    Explanation
    If the SMC of a school has 16 members, then the number of women members in the SMC will be 8. This can be inferred based on the assumption that the SMC is composed of both men and women. Since the question does not provide any specific information about the gender distribution within the SMC, it is reasonable to assume an equal representation of men and women. Therefore, half of the 16 members, which is 8, would be women.

      3

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      4 + 1 Head Teacher

    • D.

      2

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4 because typically, there is one teacher for every class in a primary school. Since there are 98 students, there would need to be 98/25 = 3.92 classes. However, since we cannot have a fraction of a class, we would round up to 4 classes. Therefore, the government would need to provide 4 teachers for the school.

    Rate this question:

  • 16.

    • C.

      40 children

    • D.

      45 children

    Correct Answer
    B. 35 children
    Explanation
    In class 7, there should be one teacher for every 35 children. This means that the ideal student-teacher ratio for class 7 is 35:1. This ratio ensures that the teacher can effectively manage and provide individual attention to each student, leading to better learning outcomes. Having too few students per teacher may result in inadequate attention and support for each student, while having too many students per teacher may make it difficult for the teacher to manage the classroom and cater to the needs of each student. Therefore, 35 children per teacher is the appropriate ratio for class 7.

This requirement ensures that teachers have sufficient time to fulfill their teaching responsibilities, prepare lesson plans, grade assignments, and engage in professional development activities. It also allows for additional time to address student needs, collaborate with colleagues, and participate in school activities. Meeting this minimum requirement helps ensure that teachers are able to effectively support student learning and contribute to the overall functioning of the educational institution.
