The following graph shows the number of electrical appliances (in thousands) sold by two companies, Samsung and Philips, for five years. 1.Out of the total number of appliances sold by Samsung in 2016, 37.12% were mobile phones, and out of the total number of appliances sold by Philips in the same year, 43.8% were mobile phones. What is the difference between the number of mobile phones sold by both companies in 2016?
A  1046
B  186
C  39
D  513
E  None of these

2.Which of the given years witnessed the maximum percentage growth in the number of appliances sold by Samsung with respect to the previous year?
A  2017
B  2014
C  2015
D  2016
E  Cannot be determined

3.The average price of each appliance sold by Philips in the year 2015 was Rs.750 and the same for Samsung was Rs. 720. What is the percentage difference between the revenue earned by Samsung as compared to Philips?
A  18.2%
B  8.6%
C  12.4%
D  6.1%
E  3.5%

D. 6.1%

Total number of appliances sold by Philips in 2015 = 38000
Given, average price of each appliance = Rs. 750
So, revenue earned by Philips = 38000×750 = Rs. 28500000
Total number of appliances sold by Samsung in 2015 = 42000
Given, average price of each appliance = Rs. 720
So, revenue earned by Samsung = 42000×720 = Rs. 30240000 4.Out of the total number of appliances sold by both Philips and Samsung in 2015, 8.64% were reported to be defective, and out of the total number of appliances sold by both companies in 2016, 14.2% were reported to be defective. Find out the ratio of the number of defective appliances in 2016 to that in 2015.
A  1562:1382
B  13:11
C  459:391
D  19:17
E  3905:3456

5.What is the difference between the total numbers of appliances sold by Samsung to Philips from year 2013 to 2017?
A  2300
B  5000
C  4000
D  1500
E  2000

C. 4000

Total number of appliances sold by Samsung = 20000 + 35000 + 42000 + 30000 + 50000 = 177000
Total number of appliances sold by Philips = 30000 + 35000 + 38000 + 25000 + 45000 = 173000
Therefore, difference in the number of appliances sold = 177000 – 173000 = 4000

Directions: (6-10) Read the following graph carefully and answer the questions.The following graph shows the percentage distribution of the expenditure on different departments in two hostels of IIT Roorkee.  6.If the total expenditure of Kasturba Bhavan is Rs. 30 lacs and the total expenditure of Sarojini Bhavan is 1.5 times the total expenditure of Kasturba Bhavan, then the difference in the expenditure on Fest celebration in Kasturba Bhavan and Sarojini Bhavan will be?
A  Rs. 4.5 lacs
B  Rs. 2.9 lacs
C  Rs. 3.4 lacs
D  Rs. 5.1 lacs
E  Rs. 3.2 lacs

D. Rs. 5.1 lacs

Total expenditure of Sarojini Bhavan = 30×1.5 = 45 lacs
Expenditure on fest celebration in Kasturba Bhavan = 30×0.25 = Rs.7.5 lacs
Expenditure on fest celebration in Sarojini Bhavan = 45×0.28 = Rs.12.6 lacs
Required difference = 12.6 – 7.5 = Rs.5.1 lacs

7.If Rs.10 lacs is left (which is 20% of the total amount allocated for expenditure in Kasturba Bhavan) after the total amount is spent on all the departments in Kasturba Bhavan, then the total amount spent on medical facility and worker’s salary in Kasturba Bhavan will be?
A  Rs. 8.9 lacs
B  Rs. 11.2 lacs
C  Rs. 21.4 lacs
D  Rs. 18.6 lacs
E  Rs. 24.5 lacs

8.If the total expenditure on maintenance in the two hostels is 3 lacs and the total expenditure on medical facility is 4.5 lacs, then the ratio of the total expenditure in Kasturba Bhavan for all departments to the total expenditure in Sarojini Bhavan for all departments will be?
A  2:3
B  2:1
C  4:5
D  3:7
E  1:3

C. 4:5

Let the total expenditure in Kasturba Bhavan for all departments be x and the total
expenditure in Sarojini Bhavan for all departments be y.
0.05x + 0.08y = 3 — (1)
0.1x + 0.1 y = 4.5 — (2)
On solving (1) and (2), we get
x = 20 and y = 25
Required ratio = 20: 25 = 4:5

9.If during the next year, the amount allocated for workers’ salary in Kasturba Bhavan is doubled while in Sarojini Bhavan is halved then the total amount allocated for expenditure on the workers’ salary in both the hostels will be? (Consider that the amount allocated for expenditure in Kasturba and Sarojini Bhavan is Rs. 45 lacs and 35 lacs respectively and all the amount is spent on all the departments as per the percentage distribution given)

B  Rs. 13.64 lacs
C  Rs. 5.753 lacs
D  Rs. 32.7 lacs
E  Rs. 11.234 lacs

A. Rs. 19.525 lacs

Expenditure on workers salary in Kasturba Bhavan = 45×0.18 = 8.1 lacs
Expenditure on workers salary in Sarojini Bhavan = 35×0.19 = 6.65 lacs
Total expenditure on workers’ salary during the next year = 8.1*2 + 6.65*0.5 = 16.2 + 3.325 = 19.525 lacs

10. If the expenditure on miscellaneous in Sarojini Bhavan is Rs.12 lacs, then the total amount for expenditure in Sarojini Bhavan will be?
