Exports from Three Companies Over the Years (in Rs. crore) 1.
For which of the following pairs of years the total exports from the three Companies together are equal?
1995 and 1998
1996 and 1998
1997 and 1998
1995 and 1996
Explanation:

Total exports of the three Companies X, Y and Z together, during various years are:

In 1993 = Rs. (30 + 80 + 60) crores = Rs. 170 crores.

In 1994 = Rs. (60 + 40 + 90) crores = Rs. 190 crores.

In 1995 = Rs. (40 + 60 + 120) crores = Rs. 220 crores.

In 1996 = Rs. (70 + 60 + 90) crores = Rs. 220 crores.

In 1997 = Rs. (100 + 80 + 60) crores = Rs. 240 crores.

In 1998 = Rs. (50 + 100 + 80) crores = Rs. 230 crores.

In 1999 = Rs. (120 + 140 + 100) crores = Rs. 360 crores.

Clearly, the total exports of the three Companies X, Y and Z together are same during the years 1995 and 1996.

1993 = Rs. (30 + 80 + 60) cr = Rs. 170 cr
1994 = Rs. (60 + 40 + 90) cr = Rs. 190 cr.
1995 = Rs. (40 + 60 + 120) cr= Rs. 220 cr.
1996 = Rs. (70 + 60 + 90) cr= Rs. 220 cr
1997 = Rs. (100 + 80 + 60) cr = Rs. 240 cr
1998 = Rs. (50 + 100 + 80) cr= Rs. 230 cr
1999 = Rs. (120 + 140 + 100) cr= Rs. 360 cr
Since in 1995 and 1996 export = 220 cr.

Here is the way for solving this problem in less time.

Just look at the four options available you will notice there are only four years i.e. 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998.

So Just calculate the total exports for the following four years 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998.
