Given that,
Population of Rajasthan = 570 lakhs and population of UP = 1660 lakhs
Area of Rajasthan =$3\: lakh \: km^{2}$
and area of UP =$2\: lakh \: km^{2}$

Now,

(a) Number of peoples per $km^2$
In Rajsthan, = $\frac{population}{area}$
$=\frac{570}{3}= 190$

In UP,
$\frac{population}{area} = \frac{1160}{2}$
= 580

(b) Rajasthan is less populated as we can see that the number of people in per $km^2$ is less
