GM and GE are two laptop manufacturing companies. GM sells its laptops through its own dealership network while GE sells its laptops online.
Profit = (Revenue – Cost)
Profit% = 100*(Revenue – Cost)/Cost  1. In which of the following years, the ratio of number of laptops sold at some profit to the ratio of number of laptops sold at loss by the two companies together, was minimum?
a. 2012
b. 2013
c. 2014
d. 2015
e. 2016

C. 2014

Number of laptops sold at some profit in 2012 = 9600+320+64 = 9984
Number of laptops sold at loss in 2012 = 1920+480+16 = 2416
Ratio = 9984/2416 = 4.13
Number of laptops sold at some profit in 2013 = 10920+1560+320 = 12800
Number of laptops sold at loss in 2013 = 2240+840+120 = 3200
Ratio = 12800/3200 = 4
Number of laptops sold at some profit in 2014 = 12750+3750+900 =17400
Number of laptops sold at loss in 2014 = 3060+1190+350 = 4600

Ratio = 17400/4600 = 3.78
Number of laptops sold at some profit in 2015 = 11520+8640+2400 = 22560
Number of laptops sold at loss in 2015 = 3200+1280+960 = 5440

Ratio = 22560/5440 = 4.15
Number of laptops sold at some profit in 2016 = 9100+14000+4400=27500
Number of laptops sold at loss in 2016 = 2860+1040+1600 = 5500

Ratio = 27500/5500 = 5

Therefore, the ratio of number of laptops sold at some profit to the ratio of number of laptops sold at loss by the two companies together was minimum in 2014.

2.The revenue of GM was maximum in which year during 2012-2016?
a. 2012

Total revenue of GM in 2012 =11250*(9600*1.2 + 1920*0.8 + 480*0.5) = Rs. 149580000
Total revenue of GM in 2013 = 11900*(10920*1.2 + 2240*0.8 +840*0.5) = Rs. 182260400
Total revenue of GM in 2014 = 12700*(12750*1.2 + 3060*0.8 + 1190*0.5) = Rs. 232956100
Total revenue of GM in 2015 = 13700*(11520*1.2 + 3200*0.8 +1280*0 5) = Rs 233228800

Total revenue of GM in 2016 = 14900*(9100*1.2+2860*0.8+1040*0.5) = Rs. 204547200

Therefore, revenue of GM was maximum in 2015.

a. 200%
b. 215%

C. 230%

Total amount spent by GM on shipping and warehousing laptops in 2015 = 16000*(690 + 690) = Rs. 22080000
Total amount spent by GE on shipping laptops in 2015 = 12000*800= 9600000

Therefore, Required Percentage = 22080000*100/9600000=230%

Total amount spent by GM on advertising during 2012-16 = 50*12000 + 50*14000 + 60*17000 + 75*16000 + 80*13000= Rs. 4560000

Therefore, Required Percentage = 4560000*100/14150000=32.2%

a. 4.9%

Combined cost of the two companies in 2012 = 11250*12000 + 15000*400 = Rs. 141000000
Combined revenue of the two companies in 2012 = 11250* (9600*1.2 + 1920*0.8 + 480*0.5) + 15000*(320*1.3 + 64*1.1 + 16*0.9)
= Rs. 157092000
Combined profit percentage of the two companies in 2012 = (157092000 – 141000000)*100/141000000 = 11.41%
Combined cost of the two companies in 2016 = 14900*13000 + 17000*20000 = Rs. 533700000

Combined revenue of the two companies in 2016 = 14900*(9100*1.2+2860*0.8+1040*0.5)+17000*(14000*1.3+4400*1.1+1600*0.9) = Rs. 620707200

Combined profit percentage of the two companies in 2016 = (620707200 – 533700000)*100/533700000 = 16.30%

Therefore, required percentage = 100*(16.30-11.41)/11.41=42.86%

a. 3:4
b. 73:96
c. 37:48
d. 43:48
e. 4:5

B. 73:96

Average income of Vapour over the given years = (35+45+65+95+125)/5 = 365/5 = 73
Average income of TGIF over the given years = (65+75+90+110+140)/5 = 480/5 = 96
Reuired ratio = 73:96

C.Rs. 275 lakhs

Total Income of the five cafes in 2013 after paying both the taxes = 525 lakhs
[Total income of the five cafes before paying taxes]*(1-0.3)*(1-0.25) = (125+110+110+95+85)*(1-0.3)(1-0.25)= 276.625lac =275lacs

Average income of Chill’s and HRC together, over the given years =
(65+85+115+125+145+85+95+100+110+120)/10 = 104.5
Average income of TGIF and Vapour together, over the given years =
(65+75+90+110+140+35+45+65+95+125)/10 = 84.5

Therefore, required percentage = 100*104.5/84.5=123.7% = 124%

9.Which year has recorded the highest percentage increase in total income of the five cafes combined over previous year?
a. 2011
b. 2012

d. 2014
e. Both (a) and (c)

B.2012

Total income of the five cafes in 2010 = 65+85+65+35+25 = 275
Total income of the five cafes in 2011 = 85+95+75+45+35 = 335
Percentage increase in total income over previous year = 100*(335 – 275)/275 = 21.8%
Total income of the five cafes in 2012 = 115+100+90+65+55 = 425
Percentage increase in total income over previous year = 100*(425 – 335)/335 = 26.9%
Total income of the five cafes in 2013 = 125+110+110+95+85 = 525

Percentage increase in total income over previous year = 100*(525 – 425)/425 = 23.53%
Total income of the five cafes in 2014 = 145+120+140+125+110 = 640

Percentage increase in total income over previous year = 100*(640-525)/525 = 21.9%

Thus, year 2012 recorded highest percentage increase in total income of the five cafes over previous year.
