# Data Interpretation Tables Questions [PDF] for MAH-CET

Question 1:Â In the table, the production and the sale (in 1000 tonnes) of a certain product of a company over5 years is given.

In which year(s) the production increases by more than 10% of that in the previous year?

a)Â 2018, 2019

b)Â 2017, 2018

c)Â 2019

d)Â 2016

Solution:

Percentage increase in production of 2016 compared to 2015Â = $\frac{150}{1250}\times$100 = 12%

Percentage increase in production of 2017 compared to 2016 = $\frac{50}{1400}\times$100 = 3.57%

Percentage increase in production of 2018 compared to 2017 = $\frac{50}{1450}\times$100 = 3.44%

Percentage increase in production of 2019 compared to 2018 = $\frac{100}{1500}\times$100 = 6.67%

$\therefore$Â Â Only in 2016,Â the production increases by more than 10% of that in the previous year.

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Question 2:Â Table shows District-wise data of number of primary school teachers posted in schools of a city.

What is the difference between the total number of male teachers in the districts East, North, West taken together and the total number of female teachers in the districts East and South?

a)Â 735

b)Â 771

c)Â 110

d)Â 545

Solution:

The total number of male teachers in the districts East, North, West taken together = 1650 + 1075 + 1280

= 4005

The total number of female teachers in the districts East and South = 2375 + 1085

= 3460

Required difference = 4005 – 3460

= 545

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Solution:

Trees planted in Chandigarh in 2016 and 2019 together = 1800 + 2440 = 4240

Trees planted in Ahmedabad in 2016 and 2019 together = 2500 + 1950 = 4450

Trees planted in Pune in 2016 and 2019 together = 1800 + 1900 = 3700

Trees planted in Kolkata in 2016 and 2019 together = 2000 + 1600 = 3600

$\therefore$Â Â In Ahmedabad,Â maximum trees planted in 2016 and 2019 taken together

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Question 4:Â Study the following table and answer the question:
Percentage of marks obtained by six students in five subjects A, B, C, D & E.

The average marks of Manju, Rekha and Abhi in subject B are?

a)Â 54

b)Â 60

c)Â 56

d)Â 62

Solution:

Marks obtained by Majnu in subject B = $\frac{85}{100}\times$80 = 68

Marks obtained by Rekha in subject B = $\frac{75}{100}\times$80 = 60

Marks obtained by Abhi in subject B = $\frac{65}{100}\times$80 = 52

The average marks of Manju, Rekha and Abhi in subject B = $\frac{68+60+52}{3}$

=Â $\frac{180}{3}$

= 60

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

d)Â 3550

Solution:

From the table,

Number of trees planted inÂ Chandigarh in 2017 = 2500

Number of trees planted in Kolkata in 2020 = 1750

The total number of trees planted in Chandigarh in 2017 and in Kolkata in 2020 = 2500 + 1750

= 4250

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 8:Â Study the following table and answer the question:
Number of students Appeared (A) and Passed (P) in an annual examination from four schools Q, R, S & T in five years (2014 to 2018)

The difference between the average number of students passed from school R in 2015 to 2017 and the number of students passed from school Q in 2015 is x. The value of x lies between:

a)Â 20 and 25

b)Â 35 and 40

c)Â 30 and 35

d)Â 25 and 30

Solution:

The difference between the average number of students passed from school R in 2015 to 2017 and the number of students passed from school Q in 2015 is x.

x = 320 – ($\frac{285+294}{2}$)

x = 320 – 289.5

x = 30.5

x lies betweenÂ 30 and 35.

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 9:Â Study the following table and answer the question:

a)Â 53.9

b)Â 54.8

c)Â 59.6

d)Â 57.4

Solution:

The total number of students passed from school S in 2014 and 2017 = 273 + 247 = 520

90% of the total number of students appeared from school T in 2015, 2016 and 2017 =Â $\frac{90}{100}\left(300+320+350\right)$

= 873

Required percentage =Â $\frac{520}{873}\times100$

= 59.6(approximately)

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

b)Â 42.8

c)Â 43.8

d)Â 44.6

Solution:

The total number of students enrolled for VC in institutes D and F in 2014 = 125 +165 = 290

The total number of students enrolled for VCÂ in institutes A, B and C in 2018 = 205 + 220 + 225 = 650

Required percentage = $\frac{290}{650}\times$100

d)Â 85

Solution:

The average number of students enrolled for VC in institute F in 2015, 2017 and 2018 = $\frac{230+220+210}{3}$ = 220

The average number of students enrolled for VCÂ in all the six institutes in 2014 = $\frac{110+120+140+125+150+165}{6}$ =Â $\frac{810}{6}$ = 135

Required difference = 220 – 135 = 85

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

=Â $\frac{\frac{150}{100}\left[92+80+74+84\right]}{4}$

=Â $\frac{\frac{150}{100}\left[330\right]}{4}$

=Â $\frac{495}{4}$

= 123.75

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 15:Â In the table, production and sale (in 1000 tonnes) of a certain product of a company over 5 years is given. Study the table and answer the question.

b)Â 2019

c)Â 2015, 2016

d)Â 2015, 2019

Solution:

In 2015, percentage of sales of the production =Â $\frac{1000}{1250}\times100$ = 80%

In 2016, percentage of sales of the production = $\frac{1290}{1400}\times100$ = 92.14%

In 2017, percentage of sales of the production = $\frac{1100}{1450}\times100$ = 75.86%

In 2018, percentage of sales of the production = $\frac{1450}{1500}\times100$ = 96.67%

In 2019, percentage of sales of the production = $\frac{1390}{1600}\times100$ = 86.875%

$\therefore$Â Â In 2015 and 2019,Â sale is 80% or more but less than 90% of the production.

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Question 16:Â The table shows the daily income (in â‚¹) of 50 persons.
Study the table and answer the question:

What is the percentage of persons earning â‚¹250 or more?

a)Â 52

b)Â 68

c)Â 32

d)Â 48

Solution:

Number of persons earning less thanÂ â‚¹200 = 12

Number of persons earning between â‚¹200 andÂ â‚¹250 = 26 – 12 = 14

Number of persons earning between â‚¹250 and â‚¹300 = 34 – 26 = 8

Number of persons earning between â‚¹300 and â‚¹350 = 40 – 34 = 6

Number of persons earning between â‚¹350 and â‚¹400 = 50 – 40 = 10

Percentage of persons earning â‚¹250 or more =Â $\frac{8+6+10}{50}\times100$ = 48%

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Question 17:Â Study the following table and answer the question:

Solution:

Total marks obtained by Amit in subjects A, B and C =Â $\frac{64}{100}\times75+\frac{65}{100}\times80+\frac{80}{100}\times100$ = 48 + 52 + 80 = 180

Total marks obtained by Vikram in subjects B, C, D and E =Â $\frac{70}{100}\times80+\frac{73}{100}\times100+\frac{84}{100}\times50+\frac{86}{100}\times150$ = 56 + 73 + 42 + 129 = 300

a)Â 41:56

b)Â 43:56

c)Â 42:55

d)Â 3:4

Solution:

Number of students studying Science in institutes C and D taken together = 36 + 48 = 84

Number of students studying Computer Science in institutes A and E taken together = 57 + 55 = 112

Required ratio = 84 : 112

= 3 : 4

Hence, the correct answer is Option D
