The following line graph gives the ratio of the amounts of imports by a company to the amount of exports from that company over the period from 1995 to 2001.

Ratio of Value of Imports to Exports by a Company Over the Years.


In how many of the given years were the exports more than the imports ?

[A]. 1
[B]. 2
[C]. 3
[D]. 4

Answer: Option D


The exports are more than the imports imply that the ratio of value of imports to exports is less than 1.

Now, this ratio is less than 1 in years 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2000.

Thus, there are four such years.

How you can say that ratio of value import to export is less than 1.

Because. Here ratio=imports/exports;.

They had given export value is more than import value.

If smaller number divided by larger one then it will be less than 1. For eg:2/4=0.5.

But we have given only the import to export ratio. So how can we determine the value of import and export?

This is confusing, what the ratio of exports, then only we can determine the ratio right?
