# It was found that the volume of data transfer in India is the same as that of Singapore. Then which of the following statements is true?

Solution

If the volume of data transfer in India is the same as that of Singapore then we have ($$R_i$$ * 7.5 / 0.9 )= (20*$$R_s$$ / 9.5) ; we get $$R_s$$ nearly equal to 4*$$R_i$$.
Hence  Total revenue in Singapore is about 4 time that of India.
