CAT 1998 Question Paper Question 5


The following table gives the quantities of apples (in tonnes) arriving at New Delhi market from various states in a particular year. The month in which demand was more than supply, the additional demand was met by the stock from cold storage. 

Question 5

If the yield per tree was 40 kg, then from how many trees were the apples supplied to New Delhi (in millions) during the year?


To calculate the number of trees required, let us calculate the total number of tonnes supplied.

The total number of tonnes supplied equals 494,525.

One tree supplies 40 kilograms.

Hence, the number of trees required is $$\frac{494525*1000}{40} \approx 12.5$$ million trees
