**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Per capita means per person. Hence, population = 41559.73 bn/ 36553.93 = 1.126 bn

Number of unemployed people = Population * 8.9/100 = 1.126*8.9/100 = 100.2 million.

Approx 100 million.

**2)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Since only percentage change is given, nothing can be said about the absolute values. From 2005 to 2010, exports increased by 115% while imports increase by 110%. Therefore, only 3 is correct.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (E)**

Current account balance in 2010 = -3.268/100*73555 = -2403.7 billions.

Current account balance in 2005 = -1.272/100*35662 = -453.62 billions.

Ratio = 2403.7/453.62 = 5.30

**4)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

If the demand rises by 30%, the increase in MMT = 30%*80=24 MMT. Tata Steel has excess capacity of 19 MMT. Hence, it would need to expand capacity by 5 MMT.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

Chennai Steel sells all the steel produced by them and hence has the best sales/production ratio. Hence, option C.

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Clearly, Tata Steel produces much more than the other three and would always make more profit in rupee terms than the other three. Hence, option D.

**7)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Comparing the four, we can see that Mittal and Chennai Steel have much higher utilization rate than the other two.

The unutilized capacity for Ispat and Tata is 7/22 and 19/60.

Comparing the two fractions we get Â 7/22>19/60

Hence, Ispat has the highest unutilized capacity.

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The price per tonne for steel for each of the four is the least for Mittal Steel at 2600/tonne. To calculate the average price/tonne for Others we calculate their revenue and divide by the number of tonnes sold. Hence, revenue of Others = 22400 – sum of top 4 = 4400. Hence price/tonne=4400/4=1100. Hence, Other producers will provide the cheapest steel.

**9)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

The total number of students in the school playing both football and cricket is 126+135-220 =41

So, the total number of students playing exactly one sport is 220-41=179

The total number of students in class 8 playing both football and cricket is 48+65-95 = 18

So, the total number of students in class 8 playing exactly one sport is 95-18=77

So, the number of students not from class 8 playing exactly one sport is 179-77=102

**10)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The total number of students in the school playing both football and cricket is 126+135-220 =41

So, the total number of students in the school playing only cricket is 135-41=94
