Solutions

2). Required %= (550/1150)×100=47.82%≈48%

3). Total number of persons travelling in all the years together by Airlines=350+300+250+450+200=1550

4). Required ratio =550: 400=11:8

5). Average number of persons travelling by buses in all the years together= (500+550+550+600+400)/5=2600/5=520

6). Profit of Company B=RS.60 lakh in 2011. And profit of three companies in that year=50+60+40=150
∴ Required %= (60/150)×100=40%

7). Expenditure of Company C=Income-Profit=5328925-4500000=RS.828925
