**ANSWER AND SOLUTION:****1**(

**A)Explanation:**

**Requierd Ratio = 5040/3360 = 1.5**

**2(C)Explanation:**

Foreign exchange reserve in 1997-98 = 5040 million US $

Foreign exchange reserve in 1993-94 = 2520 million US $

Increase = 5040 – 2520 = 2520 million US $

Percentage Increase =2520/2520∗100=100%

Foreign exchange reserve in 1993-94 = 2520 million US $

Increase = 5040 – 2520 = 2520 million US $

Percentage Increase =2520/2520∗100=100%

**3**(

**D)Explanation:**

Before solving this, put a clever eye on the chart, just

calculate for those years which are actually having increase if we compare to

previous year.

These years are 1992-93, 1994-95, 1996-97, 1997-98

So lets calculate the percentage increase of these years compared to previous

years :

i. For year 1992-93 = (3720−2640)/2640∗100=40.91%

calculate for those years which are actually having increase if we compare to

previous year.

These years are 1992-93, 1994-95, 1996-97, 1997-98

So lets calculate the percentage increase of these years compared to previous

years :

i. For year 1992-93 = (3720−2640)/2640∗100=40.91%

ii. For year 1994-95 = (3360−2520)/2520∗100=33.33%

iii. For year 1996-97 = (4320−3120)/3120∗100=38.46%

iv. For year 1997-98 = (5040−4320)/4320∗100=16.67%

**4(C)Explanation:**

First get the average of these 8 years.

which is,

1/8(2640+3720+2520+3360+3120+4320+5040+3120)

= 3480 million US $

Foreign exchange reserves in 1996-97 = 4320 million US $

Required Percentage = (4320/3480∗100)%=125%

which is,

1/8(2640+3720+2520+3360+3120+4320+5040+3120)

= 3480 million US $

Foreign exchange reserves in 1996-97 = 4320 million US $

Required Percentage = (4320/3480∗100)%=125%

**5(A)Explanation:**

Average foreign exchange reserves over the given period is =

3480 million US $

The country had reserves above 3480 million US $ during the years 1992-93,

1996-97 and 1997-98. So three years is was above the average and for rest of

five years it was below the average

So required ratio is :3:5

3480 million US $

The country had reserves above 3480 million US $ during the years 1992-93,

1996-97 and 1997-98. So three years is was above the average and for rest of

five years it was below the average

So required ratio is :3:5

**6(C)Explanation:**

To solve bar graph or any other type of data interpretation

questions, its very important to make use of eyes too, by having a look on

graph we can solve many questions quickly, sometimes it helps us get the

correct answers or some times it helps us eliminate few options from given

options.

So let solve now,

if you see graph, it is really visible that shampoo is the right answer.

But still lets solve for the sake of explanation.

Lipsticks=[(48.17−20.15)/20.15∗100]%=139.06%

Lipsticks=[(48.17−20.15)/20.15∗100]%=139.06%

Nail Enamels=[(37.76−5.93)/5.93∗100]%=536.76%

Shampoos=[(12.21−7.88)/7.88∗100]%=54.95%

Conditioners=[(10.19−5.01)/5.01∗100]%=103.39%

So Shampoo is approx 55%

**7(C)Explanation:**

Lipsticks=[(48.17−20.15)/20.15∗100]%=139.06%

NailEnamels=[(37.76−5.93)/5.93∗100]%=536.76%

Shampoos=[(12.21−7.88)/7.88∗100]%=54.95%

Conditioners=[(10.19−5.01)/5.01∗100]%=103.39%

So Shampoo is having

minimum increase

minimum increase

**8(B)Explanation:**

Percentage=[(48.17−37.76)/37.76∗100]%=27.57%

Which is approximately

equal to 28 %

equal to 28 %

**9(D)Explanation:**

Percentage=[(7.88−5.01)/7.88∗100]%=36.42%

Which is approximately

36%

36%

**10(A)Explanation:**

Required ratio will be : 37.16/14.97=2.5=5/2=5:2
