Venkat, a stockbroker, invested a part of his money in the stock of four companies — A, B, C and D. Each of these companies belonged to different industries, viz., Cement, Information Technology (IT), Auto, and Steel, in no particular order. At the time of investment, the price of each stock was Rs.100. Venkat purchased only one stock of each of these companies. He was expecting returns of 20%, 10%, 30%, and 40% from the stock of companies A, B, C and D, respectively. Returns are defined as the change in the value of the stock after one year, expressed as a percentage of the initial value. During the year, two of these companies announced extraordinarily good results. One of these two companies belonged to the Cement or the IT industry, while the other one belonged to either the Steel or the Auto industry. As a result, the returns on the stocks of these two companies were higher than the initially expected returns. For the company belonging to the Cement or the IT industry with extraordinarily good results, the returns were twice that of the initially expected returns. For the company belonging to the Steel or the Auto industry, the returns on announcement of extraordinarily good results were only one and a half times that of the initially expected returns. For the remaining two companies, which did not announce extraordinarily good results, the returns realized during the year were the same as initially expected.

Hence , minimum average return will be 30 %

So to get an average return of 35%, A announced extraordinary results and B did not.
Hence, option B is the answer.

To give 38.75 % average return we can see that B didnt give extraordinary returns and C can be any of the auto/steel industry.

Â Hence he cannot earn less than 33.75% average as we consider B(lowest) to give extraordinary results .

Let a,d,j,g be the shots put by ashish,dhanraj,ganesh and jugraj respectively. According to given conditions we have ,
g=a-8;
d+r=37;
j=d+8;
a=5+d;
a+g=40 .
Solving we have a=24, d=19 and j=27.so d+j=45

Take IIFT Mock Tests (With Solutions)

Let a,d,j,g be the shots put by Ashish, Dhanraj, Ganesh and Jugraj respectively.
According to given conditions we have ,
g = a-8; d + r = 37; j = d + 8; a = 5 + d; a + g = 40
Solving these equations, we have a = 24, d = 19 and j = 27 and r = 18. Hence option A is the correct answer.
