**Question 1:Â **Study the following graph and answer the question that follows.

What is the total ratio of the revenue of the company in 2016 and 2018 to that of the total expenditure in 2015 and 2017 respectively?

a)Â 143:105

b)Â 130:103

c)Â 115:114

d)Â 105:143

**1)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

Total revenue of the company in 2016 and 2018 = 340 + 375 = 715

Total expenditure of the company in 2015 and 2017 = 250 + 275 = 525

Required Ratio = 715 :Â 525

i.e; 143 : 105

Hence, option A is correct.

**Question 2:Â **Study the following graph and answer question that follows.

The expenditure of the company in 2016 is what percentage more then the average revenue (per year) in 2014, 2015 and 2018 (correct to the nearest integer)?

a)Â 3%

b)Â 5%

c)Â 6%

d)Â 4%

**2)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

Expenditure of the company in 2016 = 320

Average revenue in 2014,2015 and 2018

$\therefore\frac{\left(revenue\ in\ 2014+revenue\ in\ 2015+revenue\ in\ 2018\right)}{3}$

$\therefore\frac{\left(260+300+375\right)}{3}$

= 311.67

Required percentage =Â $\frac{\left(320-311.67\right)}{311.67}$

$=2.67\simeq\ 3\%$

Hence, option A is correct

**Question 3: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

**3)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**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 4: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

**4)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**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

**Question 5:Â **Table shows the number of trees planted in 4 cities from 2016 to 2020.

In which city were maximum trees planted in 2016 and 2019 taken together?

a)Â Chandigarh

b)Â Ahmedabad

c)Â Pune

d)Â Kolkata

**5)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**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 6: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

**6)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**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

**Question 7:Â **The bar graph given below shows the sales of Newspapers (in lakh number) from six branches of a Media Publication Company during two consecutive years 2017 and 2018.

(Note: The data shown below is only for mathematical exercise. They do not represent the actual figures).

Total Sales of U for both the years is what percent (correct to one place of decimal) of the combined Sales of the branches Q and R for 2017 and 2018?

a)Â 48.6%

b)Â 67.1%

c)Â 44.4%

d)Â 41.0%

**7)Â AnswerÂ (C)**

**Solution:**

Total Sales of U for both the years = 80 + 100

= 180

Total sales of Q for 2017 and 2018 = 85 + 85

= 170

Total sales of R for 2017 and 2018 = 105 + 130

= 235

The combined Sales of the branches Q and R for 2017 and 2018 = 170 + 235

= 405

Required percentage = $\frac{180}{405}\times$100

= 44.4%

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

**Question 8:Â **The pie graph shows the distribution of employees working in five departments A, B, C, D and E of a company.

a)Â 725

b)Â 850

c)Â 1000

d)Â 915

**8)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

Number of employees working in department A = x = $\frac{64.2^{\circ\ }}{360^{\circ\ }}\times9000$ = 1605

x = 1605

Number ofÂ employees working in department C =Â $\frac{72^{\circ\ }}{360^{\circ\ }}\times9000$ = 1800

Number of employees working in department E = $\frac{93^{\circ\ }}{360^{\circ\ }}\times9000$ = 2325

The total number of employees working in departments C and E = y = 1800 + 2325 = 4125

y = 4125

y – 2x = 4125 – 2(1605) = 4125 – 3210 = 915

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 9:Â **Bar graph shows the number of males and females in five organizations A, B, C, D and E.

What is the ratio of number of males working in organizations C, D and E taken together to that of females working in organizations A, B and C taken together?

a)Â 10:11

b)Â 49:46

c)Â 11:10

d)Â 46:49

**9)Â AnswerÂ (A)**

**Solution:**

Number of males working in organizations C, D and E taken together = 325 + 275 + 150 = 750

Number ofÂ females working in organizations A, B and C taken together = 300 + 275 + 250 = 825

Required ratio = 750 : 825

= 10 : 11

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

**Instructions**

Study the following table and answer the question:

Number of students enrolled for Vocational Courses (VC) in five institutes – A, B, C, D & E.

**Question 16:Â **The total number of students enrolled for VC in institutes A, B and D in 2015 is what percent more than the total number of students enrolled in institutes C and E in 2018? (correct to one decimal point)

a)Â 28.2

b)Â 36.8

c)Â 35.7

d)Â 39.3

**16)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

Total number of students enrolled for VC in institutes A, B and D in 2015 = 130 + 138 + 122

= 390

Total number of students enrolled for VC inÂ institutes C and E in 2018 = 135 + 145

= 280

Required percentage = $\frac{390-280}{280}\times$100

=Â $\frac{110}{280}\times$100

= 39.3% (approximately)

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 17:Â **What is the sum of the average number of students enrolled for VC in institute B in 2014, 2015 and 2017 and the average number of students enrolled in institute E in 2013 and 2018?

=Â $\frac{405}{3}$

= 135

Average number of students enrolled in institute E in 2013 and 2018 = $\frac{105+145}{2}$

= $\frac{250}{2}$

= 125

Required sum = 135 + 125

= 260

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

**Question 18:Â **The given histogram represents the marks obtained by 128 students. Read the graph and answer the question that follows.

What percent of students got marks less than 60?

a)Â 67.5%

b)Â 72.5%

c)Â 75%

d)Â 62.5%

**18)Â AnswerÂ (D)**

**Solution:**

From the Histogram,

Number of students who got less than 60 marks = 8 + 14 + 28 + 30

= 80

Required percentage = $\frac{80}{128}\times$100

= 62.5%

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

**Question 19:Â **The following Pie chart represents the percentage-wise distribution of 800 students of class XII in a school in six different sections A, B, C, D, E and F.

The table given below shows the number of girls of class XII in six different sections A, B, C, D, E and F.

The total number of girls in sections B, C and D together is what percent more than the total number of boys in sections A, B and D together?

a)Â 50

b)Â 76.25

c)Â 65.75

d)Â 80

**19)Â AnswerÂ (B)**

**Solution:**

Number of students in section A = $\frac{20}{100}\times$800 = 160

Number of boys in section A = 160 – 102 = 58

Number of students in section B = $\frac{18}{100}\times$800 = 144

Number of boys in section B = 144 – 80 = 64

Number of students in section D = $\frac{17}{100}\times$800 = 136

Number of boys in section D = 136 – 98 = 38

Total number of boys in sections A, B and D together = 58 + 64 + 38 = 160

Total number of girls in sections B, C and D together = 80 + 104 + 98 = 282

Required percentage = $\frac{282-160}{160}\times$100

=Â $\frac{122}{160}\times$100

= 76.25%

Hence, the correct answer is Option B
