The following pie-chart shows the sources of funds to be collected by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for its Phase II projects. Study the pie-chart and answers the question that follow.

Sources of funds to be arranged by NHAI for Phase II projects (in crores Rs.)


If NHAI could receive a total of Rs. 9695 crores as External Assistance, by what percent (approximately) should it increase the Market Borrowing to arrange for the shortage of funds?

[A]. 4.5%
[B]. 7.5%
[C]. 6%
[D]. 8%

Answer: Option C


Shortage of funds arranged
through External Assistance
Therefore = Rs. (11486 - 9695) crores
= Rs. 1791 crores.

Therefore Increase required in Market Borrowing = Rs. 1791 crores.

Percentage increase required = ( 1791 x 100 ) % = 5.98% ~= 6%.

Questions says External Assistance, by what percent (approximately) should it increase the "Market Borrowing" to arrange for the shortage of funds, so;

M.B. As given in chart =29,952.
Amt. received by NHAI= 9695.
Hence,shortage of funds arranged,
through External Assistance=
11,486- 9695=1791.
% increases =(1791x100)/29952.
=5.97% ~6%.
