*Directions to Solve*

Answer the questions based on the given line graph.

Ratio of Exports to Imports (in terms of money in Rs. crores) of Two Companies Over the Years

We shall try to find the difference between the imports and exports of Company B for various years one by one:

For 1995: We have

E |
= 0.75 |

I |

where *E* = amount of exports, *I* = amount of imports in 1995.

*E* = 0.75*I*

*I* - *E* = 0.75 x *I* = 0.25*I*.

Thus, the difference between the imports and exports of Company B in 1995 is dependent on the amount of imports of Company B in 1995.

Similarly, the difference for other years can be determined only if the amount of imports for these years is known.

Since the imports or exports for various years are not know, the differences between and exports for various years cannot be determined.

So, the answer will be C.

Option (C) is correct.

For option A 2000 --> ratio is 1.25 i.e Export/Import=125/100 The Difference is 125-100=25.

For option B 1996 --> ratio is 0.75 i.e E/I= 75/100 Difference is 25.

For option C 1998 and 2000 --> ratio is 0.75+1=1.75 i.e E/I= 175/100 Difference is 75.

Hence max is in the year 95 or 96. Hence answer should be B.
