For the following three questions: Answer the questions based on the pie charts given below.

Chart 1 shows the distribution of 12 million tonnes of crude oil transported through different modes over a specific period of time.

Chart 2 shows the distribution of the cost of transporting this crude oil. The total cost was Rs. 30 million.

Question 1:

The cost in rupees per tonne of oil moved by rail and road happens to be roughly

a) Rs. 3
b) Rs. 1.5
c) Rs. 4.5
d) Rs. 8

Question 2:

From the charts given, it appears that the cheapest mode of transport is

b) rail
c) pipeline
d) ship

Question 3:

If the costs per tonne of transport by ship, air and road are represented by P, Q and R respectively, which of the following is true?

a)R > Q > P
b)P > R > Q
c)P > Q > R
d)R > P > Q

Solutions: (1 to 3)

Total tonnes of transportation by both rail and road is about Â 31*12/100 = 3.72 million tonnes and total cost incured 18*30/100 = 5.4 .
Hence required value is 5.4/3.72 which is about 1.5.
Hence option B .

Cheapest mode of transport will be the one which will have highest transport volume and comparatively lowest cost. We can figure out from the graph that Road have wide gap with very less costs.

For Road, Cost = 6/22
For Rail, Cost = 12/9
For Pipeline, = 65/49
For Ship, Cost = 10/9
Lowest cost is for road.

If the costs per tonne of transport by ship, air and road are represented by P, Q and R respectively.

P = 10/9
Q = 7/11
R = 6/22
We can see that P>Q and Q>R Â and P>R. Hence option C.
