Direction (for Q.Nos. 1 - 5):

The circle-graph given here shows the spendings of a country on various sports during a particular year. Study the graph carefully and answer the questions given below it.

1.

What percent of total spending is spent on Tennis?

A.
 12 1 % 2
B.
 22 1 % 2
C.
 25%
D.
 45%

Explanation:

 Percentage of money spend on Tennis = 45 x 100 % = 12 1 %. 360 2

2.

How much percent more is spent on Hockey than that on Golf?

A.
 27%
B.
 35%
C.
 37.5%
D.
 75%

Explanation:

Let the total spendings on sports be Rs. x. Then,

 Amount spent on Golf = Rs. 36 x x = Rs. x . 360 10

 Amount spent on Hockey = Rs 63 x x = Rs. 7x . 360 40

 Difference = Rs. 7x - x = Rs 3x . 40 10 40

 Required percentage = Rs. 3x/40 x 100 % = 75%. x/10

3.

If the total amount spent on sports during the year be Rs. 1,80,00,000 , the amount spent on Basketball exceeds on Tennis by:

A.
 Rs. 2,50,000
B.
 Rs. 3,60,000
C.
 Rs. 3,75,000
D.
 Rs. 4,10,000

Explanation:

Amount spent on Basketball exceeds that on Tennis by:

 Rs. (50 - 45) x 1,80,00,000 = Rs. 2,50,000. 360

4.

How much percent less is spent on Football than that on Cricket?

A.
 22 2 % 9
B.
 27%
C.
 33 1 % 3
D.
 37 1 % 7

Explanation:

Let the total spendings on sports be Rs. x. Then,

 Amount spent on Cricket = Rs. 81 x x = Rs. 9x . 360 40

 Amount spent on Football = Rs 54 x x = Rs. 3x . 360 20

 Difference = Rs. 9x - 3x = Rs 3x . 40 20 40

 Required percentage = Rs. 3x/40 x 100 % = 33 1 %. 9x/40 3

5.

If the total amount spent on sports during the year was Rs. 2 crores, the amount spent on Cricket and Hockey together was:

A.
 Rs. 8,00,000
B.
 Rs. 80,00,000
C.
 Rs. 1,20,00,000
D.
 Rs. 1,60,00,000

Explanation:

Amount spent on Cricket and Hockey together
 = Rs. (81 + 63) x 2 crores 360
= Rs. 0.8 crores
= Rs. 80,00,000.

Direction (for Q.Nos. 6 - 10):

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

6.

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

A.
 2
B.
 3
C.
 4
D.
 5

Explanation:

The exports are more than imports in those years for which the exports to imports ratio are more than 1. For Company A, such years are 1995, 1996 and 1997.

Thus, during these 3 years, the exports are more than the imports for Company A.

7.

If the imports of Company A in 1997 were increased by 40 percent, what would be the ratio of exports to the increased imports?

A.
 1.2
B.
 1.25
C.
 1.3
D.
 cannot be determined

Explanation:

In 1997 for Company A we have:

 E = 1.75     i.e.,     E = 1.75I I

where E amount of exports, I = amount of imports of Company A in 1997.

Now, the required imports I1 = I + 40% of I = 1.4I.

 Required ratio = E = 1.75I = 1.25. I1 1.4I

8.

If the exports of Company A in 1998 were Rs. 237 crores, what was the amount of imports in that year?

A.
 Rs. 189.6 crores
B.
 Rs. 243 crores
C.
 Rs. 281 crores
D.
 Rs. 316 crores

Explanation:

Let the amount of imports of Company A in 1998 be Rs. x crores.

 Then, 237 = 0.75         x = 237 = 316. x 0.75

Amount of imports of Company A in 1998 = Rs. 316 crores.

9.

In 1995, the export of Company A was double that of Company B. If the imports of Company A during the year was Rs. 180 crores, what was the approximate amount of imports pf Company B during that year?

A.
 Rs. 190 crores
B.
 Rs. 210 crores
C.
 Rs. 225 crores
D.
 Cannot be determined

Explanation:

In 1995 for Company A we have:

 EA = 1.75 ... (i) IA

[where EA = amount of exports, IA = amount of imports of Company a in 1995]

In 1995 for Company B we have:

 EB = 0.75 ... (ii) IB

[where EB = amount of exports, IB = amount of imports of Company B in 1995]

Also, we have EA = 2EB ... (iii)

Substituting IA = Rs. 180 crores (given) in (i), we get:

EA = Rs. (180 x 1.75) crores = Rs. 315 crores.

Using EA = Rs. 315 crores in (iii), we get:

 EB = EA = Rs. 315 crores. 2 2

 Substituting EB = Rs. 315 crores in (ii), we get: 2

 IB = EB = Rs. 315 crores = Rs. 210 crores. 0.75 2 x 0.75

i.e., amount of imports of Company B in 1995 = Rs. 210 crores.

10.

In which year(s) was the difference between impors and exports of Company B the maximum?

A.
 2000
B.
 1996
C.
 1998 and 2000
D.
 Cannot be determined

Explanation:

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 = 0.75I

I - E = 0.75 x I = 0.25I.

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.

Direction (for Q.Nos. 11 - 15):

The following table shows the number of new employees added to different categories of employees in a company and also the number of employees from these categories who left the company every year since the foundation of the Company in 1995.

 Year Managers Technicians Operators Accountants Peons New Left New Left New Left New Left New Left 1995 760 - 1200 - 880 - 1160 - 820 - 1996 280 120 272 120 256 104 200 100 184 96 1997 179 92 240 128 240 120 224 104 152 88 1998 148 88 236 96 208 100 248 96 196 80 1999 160 72 256 100 192 112 272 88 224 120 2000 193 96 288 112 248 144 260 92 200 104

11.

A.
 128
B.
 112
C.
 96
D.

Explanation:

Required difference

= (272 + 240 + 236 + 256 + 288) - (200 + 224 + 248 + 272 + 260)

= 88.

12.

A.
 1312
B.
 1192
C.
 1088
D.
 968

Explanation:

Total number of Peons working in the Company in 1999

= (820 + 184 + 152 + 196 + 224) - (96 + 88 + 80 + 120)

= 1192.

13.

For which of the following categories the percentage increase in the number of employees working in the Company from 1995 to 2000 was the maximum?

A.
 Managers
B.
 Technicians
C.
 Operators
D.
 Accountants

Explanation:

Number of Managers working in the Company:

 In 1995 = 760. In 2000 = (760 + 280 + 179 + 148 + 160 + 193) - (120 + 92 + 88 + 72 + 96) = 1252.

Percentage increase in the number of Managers

 = (1252 - 760) x 100 % = 64.74%. 760

Number of Technicians working in the Company:

 In 1995 = 1200. In 2000 = (1200 + 272 + 240 + 236 + 256 + 288) -    (120 + 128 + 96 + 100 + 112) = 1936.

Percentage increase in the number of Technicians

 = (1936 - 1200) x 100 % = 61.33%. 1200

Number of Operators working in the Company:

 In 1995 = 880. In 2000 = (880 + 256 + 240 + 208 + 192 + 248) -    (104 + 120 + 100 + 112 + 144) = 1444.

Percentage increase in the number of Operators

 = (1444 - 880) x 100 % = 64.09%. 880

Number of Accountants working in the Company:

 In 1995 = 1160. In 2000 = (1160 + 200 + 224 + 248 + 272 + 260) -    (100 + 104 + 96 + 88 + 92) = 1884.

Percentage increase in the number of Accountants

 = (1884 - 1160) x 100 % = 62.41%. 1160

Number of Peons working in the Company:

 In 1995 = 820. In 2000 = (820 + 184 + 152 + 196 + 224 + 200) -    (96 + 88 + 80 + 120 + 104) = 1288.

Percentage increase in the number of Peons

 = (1288 - 820) x 100 % = 57.07%. 820

Clearly, the percentage increase is maximum in case of Managers.

14.

What is the pooled average of the total number of employees of all categories in the year 1997?

A.
 1325
B.
 1195
C.
 1265
D.
 1235

Explanation:

Total number of employees of various categories working in the Company in 1997 are:

 Managers = (760 + 280 + 179) - (120 + 92) = 1007. Technicians = (1200 + 272 + 240) - (120 + 128) = 1464. Operators = (880 + 256 + 240) - (104 + 120) = 1152. Accountants = (1160 + 200 + 224) - (100 + 104) = 1380. Peons = (820 + 184 + 152) - (96 + 88) = 972.

Pooled average of all the five categories of employees working in the Company in 1997

 = 1 x (1007 + 1464 + 1152 + 1380 + 972) 5

 = 1 x (5975) 5

= 1195.

15.

During the period between 1995 and 2000, the total number of Operators who left the Company is what percent of total number of Operators who joined the Company?

A.
 19%
B.
 21%
C.
 27%
D.
 29%

Explanation:

Total number of Operators who left the Company during 1995 - 2000

= (104 + 120 + 100 + 112 + 144)

= 580.

Total number of Operators who joined the Company during 1995 - 2000

= (880 + 256 + 240 + 208 + 192 + 248)

= 2024.

 Required Percentage = 580 x 100 % = 28.66% 29%. 2024
