1. 

What was the difference in the number of Q type cars produced in 2000 and that produced in 2001?

[A]. 35,500
[B]. 27,000
[C]. 22,500
[D]. 17,500

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Total number of Q type cars produced in 2001

    =(60 - 40)% of 4,40,000 = 88,000.

Total number of Q type cars produced in 2000

    =(45 - 30)% of 3,50,000 = 52,500.

Therefore Required difference = (88000 - 52500) = 35,500.
