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 =2520/2520100=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)/2640100=40.91%
ii. For year 1994-95 = (3360−2520)/2520100=33.33%
iii. For year 1996-97 = (4320−3120)/3120100=38.46%
iv. For year 1997-98 = (5040−4320)/4320100=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 =
(4320/3480100)%=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

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)/20.15100]%=139.06%
Nail Enamels=[(37.76−5.93)/5.93100]%=536.76%
Shampoos=[(12.21−7.88)/7.88100]%=54.95%
Conditioners=[(10.19−5.01)/5.01100]%=103.39%
So Shampoo is approx 55%

7(C)Explanation:
Lipsticks=[(48.17−20.15)/20.15100]%=139.06%
NailEnamels=[(37.76−5.93)/5.93100]%=536.76%
Shampoos=[(12.21−7.88)/7.88100]%=54.95%
Conditioners=[(10.19−5.01)/5.01100]%=103.39%
So Shampoo is having
minimum increase

8(B)Explanation:
Percentage=[(48.17−37.76)/37.76100]%=27.57%
Which is approximately
equal to 28 %
9(D)Explanation:
Percentage=[(7.88−5.01)/7.88100]%=36.42%
Which is approximately
36%
10(A)Explanation:
Required ratio will be :  37.16/14.97=2.5=5/2=5:2
