Directions (6-10): Study the following table carefully and answer the questions that follow. A few data are assigned alphabetically:
(Sales of shirts and jeans sold by Co. X in various years, Rs. Crores)

 Year Shirt (X) Jeans (Y) y/x 2000 56 70 1.25 2001 60 A 1.2 2002 B 160 C 2003 100 140 D 2004 E 160 1.33 2005 200 F G

6. The per cent increase in the shirts’ sale between years2002 and 2004 is:
(1) 40%
(2) 50%
(3) 45%
(4) 60%
(5) can’t say

7. The per cent increase in the jeans’ sale between 2001 and 2005 is:
(1) 75%
(2) 37.5%
(3) 375%
(4) 750%
(5) Can’t be determined

8. If G = 1.5, what per cent is sales of jeans in 2005 of sales of jeans in 2002?
(1) 150
(2) 175
(3) 187.5
(4) 160
(5) 190.5

9. If C = 1.6 then 7B = ?
(1) 1500
(2) 1250
(3) 700
(4) 900
(5) None of these

10. The value of A : E is:
(1) 0.6
(2) 0.8
(3) 1.0
(4) 1.2
(5) 1.5

Solutions (1-5)
1. (1)
Average production of sugar of all the three states in2008 and 2009 together = (430 + 310 + 390 + 490 + 370 + 470)/6  = 410

2. (4)
Required ratio = (580 + 510 + 660) : (670 + 600 + 730) = 1750 : 2000 = 7 : 8

3. (4)
Average production of sugar of State L for all the years together = (390 + 470 + 580 + 660 + 730 + 830)/6 = 610 tonne

4. (3)
Required difference = (740 + 620 + 830) – (560 + 440 + 580) = 610

5. (2)
Required percentage increase = (600 - 510)/510 * 100 =18 (approx)

Solutions (6 – 10)

6. (5)
Since B cannot be found from given data.

7.  (5)
Since F cannot be found from given data.

8. (3)
F/200 = 1.5
F = 300
Required percentage =  = 187.5

9. (3) 160/b = 1.6 then b = 100
So 7b = 700

10. (1)
A/E = 72/120 = 0.6
