The Table shows the quantities of minerals exported from India to six different countries A,B,C,D,E and F(in '000 tonnes) in the year 2010.

Question 86

If the second-largest importing country increases its off-take of all the minerals, taken together, from india and is at par with the largest importer, its share of the total exports of minerals from india would be?

Solution

Largest importing country is E whose imports = (32 + 29 + 48 + 2 + 3) = 114 units

Second largest importing country is C whose imports = (25 + 22 + 26 + 20 + 8) = 101 units

Second largest importing country is at par with largest importing country. Its share of the total exports is given by,

= $$\frac{114}{69 + 84 + 114 + 23 + 114 + 96} \times 100$$

= $$\frac{114}{500} \times 100$$

= $$22.8 \approx 23$$%

Hence, option C is the correct answer.
