*Directions to Solve*

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.

2.

The imports were minimum proportionate to the exports of the company in the year ?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

The imports are minimum proportionate to the exports implies that the ratio of the value of imports to exports has the minimum value.

Now, this ratio has a minimum value 0.35 in 1997, i.e., the imports are minimum proportionate to the exports in 1997.

import/export = 65/100 =0.65,

85/100 = 0.85,

35/100 = 0.35,

125/100 = 1.25

As there is less import proportion in 0.35, Hence 1997 is the answer.

85/100 = 0.85,

125/100 = 1.25

As there is less import proportion in 0.35, Hence 1997 is the answer.

Minimum proportionate means less proportionate meaning more difference between imports and exports.

More the exports compared to imports lesser values. Ex. 1/2=0. 5 and 1/3=0. 33. Clearly, it shows that exports (denominator) are inversely proportional that is less proportionate.

Import is directly proportional to ratio. So, the least ration will be the least import.

Given that ratio of imports and exports were given, but the answer is the least percent (0.35). How?
