is the same, irrespective of the colour. The table below shows the percentage of marbles of 
each colour used in the current design. The cost of each marble increased by 25%. 
Therefore, the designer decided to reduce equal numbers of marbles of each colour to keep 
the total cost unchanged. What is the percentage of blue marbles in the new design?

1. What is the syllabus for the Electrical Engineering 2018 GATE exam?
Ans. The syllabus for the Electrical Engineering 2018 GATE exam includes topics such as electrical circuits, electromagnetic fields, signals and systems, electrical machines, power systems, control systems, electrical and electronic measurements, analog and digital electronics, power electronics, and computer fundamentals.
2. How can I prepare for the Electrical Engineering GATE exam effectively?
Ans. To prepare effectively for the Electrical Engineering GATE exam, it is important to understand the exam pattern and syllabus thoroughly. Practice previous year question papers and take mock tests to get familiar with the exam format. Additionally, refer to standard textbooks, solve numerical problems, and revise the concepts regularly to ensure a strong foundation in the subject.
3. Are calculators allowed in the Electrical Engineering GATE exam?
Ans. No, calculators are not allowed in the Electrical Engineering GATE exam. Candidates are expected to perform calculations manually and must rely on their mathematical skills during the examination.
4. What is the marking scheme for the Electrical Engineering GATE exam?
Ans. The marking scheme for the Electrical Engineering GATE exam consists of two types of questions: multiple-choice questions (MCQs) and numerical answer type (NAT) questions. For MCQs, 1 or 2 marks are awarded for correct answers, while 1/3 or 2/3 marks are deducted for incorrect answers. For NAT questions, 1 or 2 marks are awarded for correct answers, and there is no negative marking for incorrect answers.
5. Can I use a non-programmable scientific calculator during the Electrical Engineering GATE exam?
Ans. No, the use of any type of calculator, including non-programmable scientific calculators, is not allowed in the Electrical Engineering GATE exam. Candidates are expected to solve mathematical problems manually without the aid of any electronic devices.
