Answers & Solutions for Data Analysis and Interpretation Questions for SBI PO PDF:

Total number of shirts sold by store B in January and February
= 240 + 310 = 550
Total number of shirts sold by store B in April and May
= 30 + 110 = 140
=> Required ratio = $\frac{550}{140}$
= $55 : 14$

Number of shirts sold by store A in January, April and May
= 170 + 210 + 340 = 720
=> Required average = $\frac{720}{3}$
= $240$

Number of shirts sold by store A in February = 240
Number of shirts sold by store A in May = 340
=> Required % increase = $\frac{340 – 240}{240} \times 100$
= $\frac{125}{3} = 41 \frac{2}{3} \%$

Total number of shirts sold by store A and B together in March
= 190 + 360 = 550
=> Total number of shirts sold by store A and B together in June
= $550 + \frac{20}{100} \times 550$
= $550 + 110 = 660$

Total number of shirts sold by stores A and B together in April
= 210 + 30 = 240
=> Total number of shirts sold by stores A and B together in December
= $240 – \frac{25}{100} \times 240$
= $240 – 60 = 180$

Total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2003
= 390 + 240 = 630
Also, ratio between total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2003 and that in 2008 = 7: 11
=> Total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2008
= $\frac{11}{7} \times 630$
= $11 \times 90 = 990$

Total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2004
= 170 + 310 = 480
Also, total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2010 is 105% of that in 2004
=> Total number of scarves sold by stores M and N together in 2010
= $\frac{105}{100} \times 480$
= $504$

Number of scarves sold by store M in 2005 = 360
Number of scarves sold by store M in 2006 = 28
=> Required % decrease = $\frac{360 – 280}{360} \times 100$
= $\frac{200}{9} = 22 \frac{2}{9} \%$

=> Required average = $\frac{900}{3}$
= $300$
