**Q(1 –4) study the following pie charts and answer the following questions:**

Village | % of population belowpoverty line |

P | 45 |

Q | 52 |

R | 38 |

S | 58 |

T | 46 |

U | 49 |

W | 51 |

**In 2001, the population of town P and Q are increased by 10 percent from the year 2000, If the population of town P in 2000 was 5000. Find the population of town Q below poverty line in 2001?**

a) 3560

b) 3500

c) 3510

d) 3520

e) None of theseAnswer –**d) 3520**

**Explanation :**

Let total population of all town be P,

then (13/100)*P = 5000 (population of P in 2000) so, P = 5000*100/13

now population of Q in 2000 = (16/100)*P and population of Q in 2001 = (110/100)*(16/100)*P

and population below poverty line in 2001 = (52/100)*(110/100)*(16/100)*P = 3520**In 2001, if the population of town S and town W are increased and decreased by 10% and 5% respectively from 2000 and the population of W in 2000 was 9000, what is the total population of town S and W in 2001?**

a) 19770

b) 18770

c) 17770

d) 21770

e) None of theseAnswer –**a) 19770**

**Explanation :**

Let total population of all town be P, then (15/100)*P = 9000, P = 60000

now population of town S in 2001, (110/100)*60000 = 11220

and population of town W in 2001, (95/100)*60000 = 8550**If in 2000 if the total population of the entire seven towns together is 50000, then what will be the population of town U below poverty line in that year**

a) 2185

b) 3085

c) 3185

d) 4135

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 3185**

**Explanation :**

50000*13/100*49/100 = 3185**If the population of town R below poverty line in 2000 was 1520, what was the population of village T in 2000?**

a) 7000

b) 8000

c) 9000

d) 10000

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 9000**

**Explanation :**

1520 = P*8/100*38/100, P = 50000

so population of T = 18/100*50000 = 900

**Q(5 -10) Study the following graph and answer the following: –**

**Cost of total production (both items together) by seven companies = rupees 25 crore**

**Ratio of production between item A and B and the percent profit earned for the two items**

Company | Ratio of production | Percent profit earned | ||

| ITEM A | ITEM B | ITEM A | ITEM B |

P | 2 | 3 | 25% | 20% |

Q | 3 | 2 | 325 | 35% |

R | 4 | 1 | 20% | 22% |

S | 3 | 5 | 15% | 25% |

T | 5 | 3 | 28% | 30% |

U | 1 | 4 | 35% | 25% |

W | 1 | 2 | 30% | 24% |

**What is the total cost of production of item A by company P and R together?**

a) 3.9

b) 4.9

c) 5.9

d) 6.9

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 5.9**

**Explanation :**

25*15/100*2/5 = 1.5 (for company P) and 25*22/100*4/5 = 4.4 (for company R)

so total = 5.9 cr**Cost of production of item A by company U is what percent of the cost of production of item B by company S?**

a) 10%

b) 15%

c) 16.67%

d) 33.33%

e) None of theseAnswer –**e) None of these**

**Explanation :**

For company U = 25*5/100*1/5 and for company S = 25*8/100*5/8

% percent = [25*5/100*1/5]/ [25*8/100*5/8] = 1/5*100 = 20%**What is the total profit earned by company W for items A and B together?**

a) 78 lakh

b) 1.62 cr

c) 7.8 lakh

d) 68 lakh

For item A cost of production = 25*12/100*1/3 = 1 crore and for item B it is 2 crore.

Now profit earned on A = 1*130/100 – 1 = 0.3 crore and profit earned on B = 2*124/100- 2 = 0.48 crore. Total profit = 0.3 + 0.48 = 0.78 crore or 78 lakh**What is the ratio of the cost of production of item A by company P to the cost of production of item A by company S?**

a) 1:2

b) 1:3
