The following bar graph shows the ratio of the export to import of two companies A and B over the period 2002-07.

**In how many years is the import is more than the export of company A?**

a) None

b) one

c) two

d) three

e) More than threeAnswer –**b) one**

**Explanation :**

In 2002, E/I = 0.8**If the total number of import of company A for the years 2005 and 2006 was Rs 50 crore, what was the total export for the same years?**

a) 25

b) 30

c) 34

d) can’t be determined

e) None of theseAnswer –**d) can’t be determined**

**Explanation :**

For 2005, export/import = 2.4 and for 2006, export/import = 1.8

50 = E1/2.4 + E2/1.8, so we can’t determine**In which of the following years, the difference between the export and import of company A is minimum.**

a) 2002

b) 2004

c) 2005

d) can’t be determined

e) None of theseAnswer –**d) can’t be determined**

**Explanation :**

Either export or import is not given for all years**If the difference the import and export for company B for the year 2004 was Rs. 50 crore. Find the value of export for the same year?**

a) 100 crore

b) 120 crore

c) 150 crore

d) 180 crore

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 150 crore**

**Explanation :**

E/I = 0.75, so I = (4/3)*E

I – E = 50, 4E/3 – E = 50, So export = 150 crore**Had the export for company A in 2005 is decreased by 25% and import is increased by 25% for the same year, what would be the new ratio of export to import?**

a) 1.22

b) 1.46

c) 1.44

d) 1.52

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 1.44**

**Explanation :**

Export/import = 2.4

So export = 12x and import = 5x

New ratio = 12x*(75/100) : 5x*(125/100) = 36/25 = 1.44

**Q(6 – 10) Study the following graph to answer the given questions: –**

**Percent profit earned by two companies over the given years.**

**% profit = [(income –expenditure)/(expenditure)]*100**

**If the expenditure of company P in 2000 was Rs. 200 crores, what was its income?**

b) 220

c) 260

d) 280

b) 440

c) 480

d) 484

E = 444.44 crore**If the incomes of two companies are equal in 2001, what was the ratio of their expenditures?**

a) 25:27

b) 27:26

c) 26:27

d) 30:31

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 26:27**

**Explanation :**

35/100 = (I – E1)/E2 and 30/100 = (I – E2)/E2**What is the percent increase in the percent profit for company Q from year 2000 to 2002?**

a) 20%

b) 25%

c) 33.33%

d) 46.67%

e) None of theseAnswer –**c) 33.33%**

**Explanation :**

% profit in 2000 = 30%

% profit in 2002 = 40%

% increase = (10/30)*100 = 33.33%**If the expenditure of both the companies are equal in 2005, find the ratio of their income?**

a) 14:15

b) 16:15

c) 15:16

d) 15:14

e) None of theseAnswer –**b) 16:15**

**Explanation :**

for P, 60/100 = (I – E)/E, Ip = (8/5)*E

for Q, 50/100 = (I -E)/E, Iq = (3/2)*E

so ratio Ip: Iq = 16:15
