The figure above shows the schedule of four employees – Abani, Bahni, Danni, and Tinni – whom Dhoni supervised in 2020. Altogether there were five projects which started and concluded in 2020 in which they were involved. For each of these projects and for each employee, the starting day was at the beginning of a month and the concluding day was the end of a month, and these are indicated by the left and right end points of the corresponding horizontal bars. The number within each bar indicates the percentage of assigned work completed by the employee for that project, as assessed by Dhoni.

For each employee, his/her total project-month (in 2020) is the sum of the number of months (s)he worked across the five projects, while his/her annual completion index is the weightage average of the completion percentage assigned from the different projects, with the weights being the corresponding number of months (s)he worked in these projects. For each project, the total employee-month is the sum of the number of months four employees worked in this project, while its completion index is the weightage average of the completion percentage assigned for the employees who worked in this project, with the weights being the corresponding number of months they worked in this project.

**Answers & Solutions:**

**1)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

The annualÂ completion index for different people is :

TheÂ weightage average of the completion percentage assigned from the different projects, with the weights being the corresponding number of months (s)he worked in these projects.

For Abani :

$\frac{\left(\left(100\cdot2\right)+\left(100\cdot2\right)+\left(80\cdot5\right)\right)}{2+2+5}=\ \frac{800}{9}$

For Bahni :

$\frac{\left(\left(100\cdot2\right)+\left(75\cdot4\right)+\left(90\cdot3\right)\right)}{2+3+4}=\ \frac{770}{9}$

For Danni :

$\frac{\left(\left(90\cdot3\right)+\left(100\cdot3\right)+\left(100\cdot2\right)+\left(100\cdot1\right)\right)}{2+3+2+1}=\ \frac{870}{9}$

For Tinni :

$\frac{\left(\left(80\cdot2\right)+\left(100\cdot2\right)+\left(100\cdot3\right)+\left(100\cdot2\right)\right)}{2+2+3+2}=\ \frac{860}{9}$

The descending order for the four people is :

Danni, Tinni, Abani, Bahni.

**2)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

Considering the information provided :

For project 1 : 3 months.

Project – 2: 5 months.

Project – 3: 5 months.

Project – 4: 5 months.

Project – 5: 4 months.

Among the given options option D is true which is project 3, project 4.

**3)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

Abani, Banni, and Danni did not work on multiple projects simultaneously in a month

Tinni was the only person who worked on multiple projects which are project 4 and project 5 in the month of september.

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

The total project month is the number of months Abani, Bahni, Danni, and Tinni individually worked for all the projects combined :

Abani – 2+2+5 = 9 months

Bahni – 2+4+3 = 9 months

Danni – 3+3+2+1 = 9 months

Tinni – 2+2+3+2 = 9 months.

The total employee month for all the five projects is the sum ofÂ the total employee-month is the sum of the number of months four employees worked in this project.

Project -1 = 2+2+2 = 6 months

Project -2 = 3+2 = 5 months

Project – 3 = 2+4+3 = 9 months.

Project – 4 = 5+2+3 = 10 months.

Project – 5 = 3+1+2 = 6 months.

Only statement 1 is true.

**5)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

The BMI of 1st oldest person=Â $\frac{40}{\left(1.5\right)^2}=\ 17.77$

The BMI of nextÂ oldest person =Â $\frac{61}{\left(1.75\right)^2}=19.9$

**6)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

For the highest BMI, weight should be as high as possible and height as little as possible.

Hence it is possible with the person with a weight of 69 kg and a height of 1.6m

From the given data the following table can be created:

Hence the value of x=10

All the values can be uniquely determined

**9)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

From the given data the following table can be created:

Hence the value of x=10

From the given options, number of neutral first time female shoppers are the least
