CAT 1997 Question 9

Instructions

The graph given below shows the quantity of milk and food grains consumed annually along with female and male population (in millions). Use the data to answer the questions that follow.


Question 9

If milk contains 320 calories and foodgrains contain 160 calories, in which year was the per capita consumption of calories highest?

Solution

The consumption of milk is comparatively lesser than that of food grains and also the consumption of milk does not change by much during the given period.

Hence, the change in food grains is the key to estimate the calorie count.

We can see the spike in consumption of food grains in 1995. Hence, percapita consumption is highest in 1995.
