The distribution of fruit consumption in a sample of 72 seventeen – year – old girls is given in the graph below. Study the graph and answer the questions.

Distribution of fruit consumption Question 20: How many of these girls ate fewer than two servings per day ?

a) 15

b) 40

c) 25

d) None of these

Let total income = 360$x$

Expenditure on education = $\frac{70}{360} * 360x = 70x$

Expenditure on housing = $\frac{54}{360} * 360x = 54x$

=> Required difference = $70x – 54x$ = 1600

=> $x$ = 100

Expenditure on food = $\frac{120}{360} * 360x = 120x$

=> 120*100 = 12000

Monthly income = 36,000

Monthly savings = $\frac{60}{360}$ * 36000 = 6,000

=> Yearly savings = 12*6000 = 72,000

For a straight line to pass through origin, both of its x & y coordinates should be ‘0’.

(A) : 2x – 3y = 0

=> If x = y = 0, then L.H.S. = 0 = R.H.S

=> It passes through origin

(B) : x + 2y + 9 = 0

=> If x = y = 0, then L.H.S. = 9 $\neq$ R.H.S. = 0

=> It does not pass through origin

(C) : 5x – 4 = 0

=> If x = 0, then L.H.S. = -4 $\neq$ R.H.S. = 0

=> It does not pass through origin

(D) : 2y – 13 = 0

=> If y = 0, then L.H.S. = -13 $\neq$ R.H.S. = 0

=> It does not pass through origin

Ans – (A)

Runs scored in 1st and 2nd innings respectively :

Dhoni = 60+80 = 140 [MAX]

Virat = 50+50 = 100

Pujara = 70+10 = 80

Dhawan = 30+20 = 50

Since, Dhoni scored the maximum in both innings

=> Average = 140/2 = 70

No. of students who like football = 15

Total students = 60

Angle used for football = $\frac{15}{60}$ * 360 = 90°

Sales of cool sip in :

1988 – 25

1989 – 6 [MIN]

1990 – 19

1991 – 15

1992 – 25

1993 – 30

=> Sales of cool sip is minimum in 1989

Ans – (D)

Sales of cool sip from 1988 to 1993 = 25+6+19+15+25+30 = 120

=> Average sales = 120/6 = 20

Sales of pep up = 30+35+30+25+20+20 = 160

=> Average sales = 160/6 = 26.67 [MAX]

Sales of dew drop = 10+15+25+15+30+25 = 120

=> Average sales = 120/6 = 20

Average sales of pep up is maximum

Sales of pep up in 1989 = 35

Sales of pep up in 1990 = 30

=> % decrease = $\frac{35-30}{35}$ * 100 = 14.28%

= ~14%

Sales of cool sip in 1989 = 6

Sales of cool sip in 1990 = 19

=> % increase = $\frac{19-6}{6} * 100 = 216.67\%$

= ~217%

Sales of dew drop in :

1988 – 10

1989 – 15

1990 – 25

1991 – 15

1992 – 30 [MAX]

1993 – 25

=> Sales of dew drop is maximum is 1992

Sales of cool sip from 1988 to 1993 = 25+6+19+15+25+30 = 120

=> Average sales = 120/6 = 20

Sales of pep up = 30+35+30+25+20+20 = 160

=> Average sales = 160/6 = 26.67

Sales of dew drop = 10+15+25+15+30+25 = 120

=> Average sales = 120/6 = 20

Average sales of both cool sip and dew drop is minimum.

Total no. of people in South zone = 1450+1120+420+350+50 = 3390

People who take coffee at least once a day = (1 to 3 times a day) + (more than 3 times a day)

= 1450+1120 = 2570

=> Required % = $\frac{2570}{3390}$ * 100

= 75.81%

Total no. of people in :

North zone = 410+1220+1640+620+950 = 4840

East zone = 310+830+710+540+430 = 2820

South zone = 1450+1120+420+350+50 = 2570

=> Total no. of people in non-west zone = 4840+2820+2570 = 11050

No. of people who take coffee only once a week in non-west zone = 620+540+350 = 1510

=> Required % = $\frac{1540}{11050}$ * 100 = 13.67%

= ~14%

No. of people who take coffee more than 3 times a day = 410+310+700+1450 = 2870

No. of people who never take coffee = 950+430+620+50 = 2050

=> Required ratio = $\frac{2870}{2050}$ = 1.4

=> 1.4 : 1

Profit = Income – Expenditure

Income in 2007 = 45

Expenditure in 2007 = 40

=> Profit in 2007 = 45-40 = 5

Income in 2008 = 60

Expenditure in 2008 = 50

=> Profit in 2008 = 60-50 = 10

Required difference = 10-5 = 5

Expenditure of the company in :

2005 = 25

2006 = 40

2007 = 40

2008 = 50

2009 = 55

=> Average expenditure = $\frac{25+40+40+50+55}{5}$ = 42

So, only in years ‘2008’ & ‘2009’, the expenditure of the company is greater than the average expenditure.

Ans – (C)

Income of company in 2007 = 45

Income of company in 2008 = 60

=> % increase = $\frac{60-45}{45}$ * 100 = $\frac{100}{3}$

= 33$\frac{1}{3}$%

Total income of the company over the years = 35+50+45+60+60 = 250

Total expenditure = 25+40+40+50+55 = 210

=> Required ratio = $\frac{250}{210}$ = 25 : 21
