Data Interpretation - Pie Charts - Discussion
The following pie-chart shows the sources of funds to be collected by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) for its Phase II projects. Study the pie-chart and answers the question that follow.
Sources of funds to be arranged by NHAI for Phase II projects (in crores Rs.)
90% of 5455.55 crore is 4910 crores.
If you consider this as 90% and 10 % commission then it will mean that commission agency is getting commission on 4910 crores that is 9 percent as Well as commission on it's own commission 1 percent.
You say the outsourced agency collects 10% commission therefore leaving the project with 90% of the total funds collected.
Therefore if the project needs to be supported with 4910 crores, doesn't this imply that of the total funds collected 90% of it should go to the project therefore
so the 100% value should be 4910/.9 = 5455.55 crores.
Your answer of 5401 crores means that after 10% is collected, the remaining value is 4860.9.
I apologise if my answer is incorrect but based on the question this is the result I came too and hence why I'm deeply puzzled.
