Sum of ages of A and B is 88, 8 years ago. The age of A 18 years ago and age of B 6 years ago is same. What is the age of A after 2 years?

Sol-

A+B=104
A-18=B-6
B..consider xx
A=104-x
(104-x)-18=x-6
Solve x=46
104-46=58yrs

Age of A two years from now…so 58+2=60 years

## Data Interpretation ( DI) Asked in SBI PO Prelims (2nd Shift)

Directions: Five different companies A, B, C, D and E make two items I and II. The total number of items produced by these five companies is 80 thousand. The cost of production of each item is Rs 5000. The distribution of the total production by these companies is given in the following pie-chart and the table shows the ratio of production of Item I to that of Item II and the percentage profit earned by these companies on each of these items.

Question 1: What is the profit earned by Company C on Item II?

[1] Rs 57.6 lakhs
[2] Rs 55.4 lakhs
[3] Rs 56.8 lakhs
[4] Rs 54 lakhs
[5] None of these

Question 2: What is the total cost of production of Item I by companies A and B together?

[1] Rs 5 crores
[2] Rs 6 crores
[3] Rs 8 crores
[4] Rs 9 crores
[5] None of these

Sol (1)

Number of items produced by company C = [72/360]*80000 = X
Cost of production = X*5000 = Y
Cost of production of Item II = [3/5]*Y = Z
Percent profit earned on Item II = 12% of Z = [12/100]*Z
= [3/5]*[12/100]*Y = 5000*[3/5]*[12/100]*X
= [72/360]*80000*[3/5]*5000*[12/100] = 5760000 = 57.6
lakh.

Sol (2)

Cost of producing Item I of company A = [90/360]*80000*[2/5]*5000
Cost of producing Item I of company B = [108/360]*80000*[1/3]*5000
Total = 80000*5000*[(90/360)*(2/5) + (108/360)*(1/3)] = 80000*5000*[1/5] = 8 crores.

According to the diaper maker Unicharm, in Japan, adult diapers now outsell baby diapers. That’s because a quarter of the country’s population is 65 or older. By 2060, that proportion will hit 40 per cent.
What adjustments have to be made when so many people grow old simultaneously? To take one example, after a recent surge in accidents involving older drivers, the government began testing the Robot Shuttle, an autonomous bus intended for use in rural areas, where Japan’s shrinking pains have hurt the most. Other tweaks include slowing down escalators and equipping shopping carts with magnifying glasses.
It’s long been observed that Japan’s ageing doesn’t bode well for its economy. Lots of old people mean a financial drain on both the private and public sectors, as health-care and pension costs skyrocket and productivity declines. But the news isn’t all bad: Amid this elder boom, a new, 100 trillion yen (\$800 billion) consumer category has emerged, known as “the silver market.”
Millions of Japanese seniors who have long been saving for retirement find themselves at the centre of a commercial bonanza. The products vying for their attention range from Docomo’s Raku-Raku 4, a smartphone that’s “easier to hear” and also has jumbo screen icons, to Fujisoft’s Palro, a \$6,000 “carebot” that combats dementia through trivia games and fitness drills. Even video-game arcades, long a bastion of youth, are wooing golden-agers with benches for resting; arcade staffers are encouraged to get certified as senior-friendly “service assistants.”

The most intriguing product, though, may be engay food. Engay is Japanese for “swallowing,” something that can become increasingly difficult as people age: More Japanese now die each year from choking than in traffic accidents.
Instead of settling for, say, a cup of Ensure-brand pudding, throw some cooked salmon in a blender. Then, with a little help from modern chemistry, mold the resulting pink puree back into the shape of a fillet, and add “grill” marks with a propane torch. Presto: salmon that looks like it was plated in a restaurant and almost tastes that way, minus the flaky texture.
The thing that makes this culinary alchemy possible is a gelling agent called Softia G, one of many nutritional-therapy products from Japan’s Nutri Co. Softia G allows cooks to reshape pureed food into something resembling its original form, but with a texture that goes down easy. Almost any dish can get the engay treatment, from dumplings to mochi cakes. The technique has been widely featured on cooking blogs and has given rise to its own cookbook and cooking contest. Even the fancy Hotel New Otani Osaka now uses it to prepare meals for geriatric guests.
Nutri hopes to bring engay food to the rest of the world, though it’s not clear how the rest of the world would respond. “This is gorgeous stuff, but you have to be practical,” says Howard Rosenberg, the director of food services at the Resort Nursing Home in Queens, New York. “Putting a glaze on salmon with a blowtorch … You can’t have an open flame in a nursing facility.”
The contrast between the American and Japanese approaches to food is stark. “It’s a difference of cultures,” explains Koichi Yanagisawa, a marketing executive for Nutri. America serves its eldest residents mush; Japan serves them salmon à la torche.
