Question 10

Additional instructions:

For any activity A, year X dominates years Y if IT business in activity A, in the year X, is greater than the IT business, in activity A, in the year Y. For any two IT business activities, A & B, year X dominates year Y if:

a) The IT business in activity A, in the year X, is greater than or equal to the IT business, in activity A in the year Y,

b) The IT business in activity B, in the year X, is greater than or equal to the IT business in activity B in the year Y and

c) There should be strict inequality in the case of at least one activity.

For the two IT business activities, hardware and peripherals, which one of the following is true?

Solution

Hardware in 96-97 = 1050 + 286 = 1336
Hardware in 95-96 = 1037 + 35 = 1072
Peripherals in 96-97 = 195
Peripherals in 95-96 = 202
So, hardware dominates in 96-97 compared to 95-96 but the same is not true for peripherals. Thus, 96-97 cannot be said to dominate 95-96. Thus, A is not true.

The same is the case for options B and C. Thus, D is the right choice.
