Answers with Explanation:

1. (b) :

Average income = (30 + 50 + 40 + 60 + 60)/ 5= 48 lakhs

Total average Profit = [(30 -20) + (50 – 30) + (40 – 30) + ( 60 – 40) + (60 – 35)]/ 5

è 17 lakhs

Ratio = 48 : 17

2. (a) :

The profit in year 1982 = 30 – 20 = 10 lakhs

The profit in year 1986 = 60 – 35 = 25 lakhs

Increase in profit = 25 – 10 = 15 lakhs

Percentage increase in profit = (15 x 100) / 10 = 150%

3. (a) :

Total income = 30 + 50 + 40 + 60 + 60 = 240 lakhs

Total expenditure = 20 + 30 + 30 + 40 + 35 = 155 lakhs

Total income total expenditure = 240 – 155 = 85 lakhs

4. (c) :

The profit in year 1983 = 50 – 30 = 20 lakhs

Profit in the year 1984 = 40 – 30 = 10 lakhs

Difference = 20 – 10 = 10 lakhs

5. (c) :

The average income of the given years

è (30 + 50 + 40 + 60 + 60)/ 5 = 240 /5 = 48 lakhs

There are 3 years ( 1983, 1985, 1986) in which the income is more than the average of the given years.

6. (c) :

∴ Amount of saving , 600 = Rs 8000

∴Amount on food , 1200 = 8000*120/60 =16000

∴ Amount on housing, 1050 = 8000*105/60=14000

Difference between food and housing = 16000-14000 =2000

7. (c) :

∴ Amount of saving, 600 = Rs 8000

Amount on education300= 8000*30/60 = 4000

8. (b) :

The ratio on expenditure on food to the saving = 1200 : 600 = 2:1

9. (b) :

Amount on education300= 8000*30/60 = 4000

Amount on housing, 1050 = 8000*105/60=14000

Total amount of education & housing = 4000 + 14000 = 18000

10. (a) :

4000 : 14000,= 2:7

11. (4)

Required no. of passengers

=1/3[(24+20+15) % of 8500]

= (1*8500*59)/100*3 = 1671

12. (1)

Number of passenger in train - R = (8500*9)/100 = 765

Number of males = (100-34-26) % of 765

= (765*40)/100 = 306

13. (5)

Reqd% = (19) / ( 13 + 9 ) x 100 =86 ( approx)

14. (3) :

It is clear from the pie chart.

15. (4)

Reqd.% = [(20-15)/15]*100 = 33(approxi)

16. (5)

Number of L types products sold by Store F=48

by Store E=40

Required percentage= (48) / (40) x 100 = 120

17. (5)

Reqd. ratio = (61+54) : (54+48)

=115:102

18. (2)

Average price = Rs (16+15+14.5+16+18+15)/6*1000 = 15750

19. (1)

Reqd. difference = (60*75-44*15)*1000 = (4500-660)*1000 = Rs = 38.4 lakhs
