Question 1: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%

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

a)Â 10:11

b)Â 49:46

c)Â 11:10

d)Â 46:49

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

Question 3:Â The following bar graph shows the amount(in Lakh Rs.) invested by a Company in purchasing raw material over the years and the values (in Lakh Rs.) of finished goods sold by the Company over the years.

d)Â 2005 and 2006

Solution:

From the bar graph,

Value per tonne of the exports in 2005 = $\frac{150}{100}=1.5$ crore/lakh tonne = 1.5 x 10$^{-5}$ crore/tonne

Value per tonne of the exports in 2006 = $\frac{150}{75}=2$ crore/lakh tonne = 2 x 10$^{-5}$ crore/tonne

Value per tonne of the exports in 2007 = $\frac{330}{150}=2.2$ crore/lakh tonne = 2.2 x 10$^{-5}$ crore/tonne

Value per tonne of the exports in 2008 = $\frac{400}{160}=2.5$ crore/lakh tonne = 2.5 x 10$^{-5}$ crore/tonne

Value per tonne of the exports in 2009 = $\frac{500}{200}=2.5$ crore/lakh tonne = 2.5 x 10$^{-5}$ crore/tonne

$\therefore\$In 2008 and 2009, value per tonne is equal.

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Question 9:Â Study the given bar chart and answer the question that follows.

a)Â 44.4%

b)Â 50%

c)Â 40%

d)Â 48.4%

Solution:

From the bar chart,

Production of fertilizers by the company(in 10,000 tonnes) in 1998 = 45

Production of fertilizers by the company(in 10,000 tonnes) in 1999 = 65

Increase in the production of fertilizers of the company from 1998 to 1999 = 65 – 45 = 20

$\therefore\$Required percentage $=\frac{20}{45}\times100=$ 44.44%

Hence, the correct answer is Option A

Question 10:Â Given bar graph shows, total expenditure and the gross receipts of a company (in â‚¹ crores). Study the graph and answer the question that follows.

b)Â 4800

c)Â 3700

d)Â 5500

Solution:

From the bar graph,

Expenditure of the company in 1998-99 = 8500

Expenditure of the company in 1994-95 = 4800

Difference in expenditures in 1998-99 and 1994-95 = 8500 – 4800 = 3700

$\therefore\$The total expenditure of the company in 1998-99 exceeds that in 1994-95 by (in â‚¹ crore) 3700

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 11:Â Given bar graph shows, total expenditure and the gross receipts of a company (in â‚¹ crores). Study the graph and answer the question that follows.

In order to make a profit of 20%, what should have been the gross receipts (in crore â‚¹) in 1995-96, if the total expenditure remained the same?

a)Â 6445

b)Â 7565

c)Â 6875

d)Â 5776

Solution:

From the bar graph,

Total expenditure in 1995-96 = 5500

Let the gross receipts in 1995-96 to make 20% = a

$\Rightarrow$Â  a – 5500 =Â $\frac{20}{100}\times$a

$\Rightarrow$Â  a –Â $\frac{1}{5}\times$a = 5500

$\Rightarrow$ Â $\frac{4}{5}\times$a = 5500

$\Rightarrow$Â  a = 6875

$\therefore\$The gross receipts in 1995-96 to make 20% = 6875

Hence, the correct answer is Option C

Question 12:Â Given bar graph shows, total expenditure and the gross receipts of a company(in â‚¹ crores). Study the graph and answer the question that follows.

b)Â 44%

c)Â 42%

d)Â 43%

Solution:

From the bar graph,

Gross receiptsÂ  in 1996-97 = 7200

Gross receipts in 1994-95 = 5000

Increase in gross receipts = 7200 – 5000 = 2200

$\therefore\$Required percentage =Â $\frac{2200}{5000}\times100$ = 44%

Hence, the correct answer is Option B

Question 13:Â Given bar graph shows, total expenditure and the gross receipts of a company (in â‚¹ crores). Study the graph and answer the question that follows

(Correct to one decimal place)

a)Â 4.8%

b)Â 5.4%

c)Â 3.9%

d)Â 6.1%

Solution:

From the bar graph,

Gross receipts in 1997-98 = 8200

Total expenditure in 1997-98 = 7700

Profit in 1997-98 = 8200 – 7700 = 500

$\therefore\$Required percentage = $\frac{500}{8200}\times100$ = 6.097% = 6.1% (approximately)

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

Percentage of boysÂ who got marks from 60% to 74% =Â $\frac{45}{12+45+8}\times100=\frac{45}{65}\times100=69.23\%$

Number of girls who got marks from 60% to 74% = 53

Percentage of girls who got marks from 60% to 74% = $\frac{53}{7+53+5}\times100=\frac{53}{65}\times100=81.53\%$

$\therefore\$The ratio of percentages of boys and girls who got marks from 60% to 74% =Â 69.23 : 81.53

Hence, the correct answer is Option C
