2. D) Total export of Cotton in the given period = 35% of (40 + 33 + 34 + 32 + 38 + 39) = 35% of 216 = 75.6 billion

Average export of Cotton = 75.6/6 = 12.6 billions

3. C) Export of Rice and Cotton in August = 65% of 39 = 25.35 billion

Total export in the other three sectors = 35% of 39 = 13.65 billion

Solutions:

(1 5):

Number of students in course A = 1200 (20 / 100) = 240

Number of girls = 800 (30 / 100) = 240, Number of boys = 0

Number of students in course B = 1200 (15 / 100) = 180

Number of girls = (800 10) / 100 = 80, Number of boys = 180 80 = 100

Number of students in course C = 1200 (5 / 100) = 60

Number of girls = (800 2) / 100 = 16, Number of boys = 60 16 = 44

Number of students in course D = 1200 (35 / 100) = 420

Number of girls = (800 30) / 100 = 240, Number of boys = 420 240 = 180

Number of students in course E = (1200 12) / 100 = 144

Number of girls = (800 14) / 100 = 112, Number of boys = 144 112 = 32

Number of students in course F = (13 1200) / 100 = 156

a didates appeared fro State C respe ti el ?

a) 8 : 37

b) 11 : 12

c) 37 : 40

d) 7 : 37

e) None of these

Solutions:

1. A) No. of candidates who appeared from states C and E together = (8% + 9%) of 45000 = 17% of 45000

No. of candidates who appeared from states A and F together = (15% + 18%) of 45000 = 33% of 45000

Required ratio = 17% of 45000 : 33% of 45000 = 17 : 33

2. E) Let us compare the ratios for states given in option.

States C F D E G
No. of (8 / 100)
(18/100) (17/100) 45000 (9/100) 45000 = (22/100) 45000
candidates who 45000 =
45000 = 8100 = 7650 4050 = 9900
appeared 3600
No. of qualified (7/100) (11/100) 9000 (21/100) 9000 = (14/100) 9000 = (13/100) 9000 =
candidates 9000 = 630 = 990 1890 1260 1170

= (7/40) = (11/90)<(1/6) (189/765)>(1/6) (126/405)>(1/6) (117/990)<(1/6)


1/6

Since we have to find minimum percentage increase, compare 11/90 and 117/990

11/90 = 121/990, 121/990 > 117/990

Hence, state G has minimum percentage increase

3. B) Qualified candidates of B and C to together = (16% + 7%) of 9000 = 23% of 9000

Appeared candidates of B and C together = (11% + 8%) of 45000 = 19% of 45000

Required % = [(23 9000) / (19 45000)] 100 = [(23 100) / (19 5)] = (23 20) / 19 = 24.21%

4. C) Required ratio = (16% + 21%) of 9000 : 8% of 45000

(37 / 100) 9000 = (8/100) 45000 = 37 9000 : 845000 = 37 : 8 5 = 37 : 40

To find the maximum possible number of days on which it rained in exactly one state in southern India we need
to minimize the number of days it rained in both the states in southern India. The minimum possible number of
days it rained in both Kerala and Karnataka in January as (6 + 4) 7 = 3.

Similarly, it has been calculated for other months.

Therefore the value of A, B, C, D, E and F is 4, 6, 5, 10, 18 and 8 respectively.

1. C)

2. D)

3. A)

The maximum possible number of days on which it rained in western India and did not rain in southern India in
January = 7 maximum (6, 4) = 1.

5. Which of the following sweets the costliest?

a) Kalakand

b) Burfi

c) Panni

Mentor for Bank Exams Data Interpretation Volume - 1

2. A) Total amount to be paid by Ritesh = 2 x (25% of 25450)/(36% of 250) + 1/2(12% of 25450)/(8% of 250) = Rs.
217.73

3. C) e ui ed a e age = / kg. pe da .

4. C ate of Pi i= % of / % of = / .

So, Cost of 10 kg. Pinni = 118.76 x 10 = 1187.60 Rs.

He e, Total a ou t fet hed = + . s.

5. A) Since rate of KALAKAND = (17% of 25450)/(10% of 250)=173.06

Rate of Burfi = (12% of 25450)/(8% of 250)=152.70

Rate of Pinni = (28% of 25450)/(24% of 250)=118.76

Rate of Milkcake = (2% of 25450)/(2% of 250)=101.80

Rate of Laddu = (16% of 25450)/(20% of 250)=81.44

Hence, the costliest sweets are KALAKAND.

selling belts than by selling ties?

a) Rs.105

b) Rs.175

c) Rs.225

d) Rs.200

e) None of these

Solutions:

1. C) From the given bar graph, it can be observed that sales of trouser in shop IV is more than that in shop I, and
sales of shirt in shop IV is more than that in shop III. So there will be two items.

2. A) Required Percentage = 20/140 x 100 = 14% Approx

1. D) Sales of Ashok Leyland in FY 2010-11 = 40 thousand

FY 2011-12 = 40 1.125 = 45000

Sales of Eicher = 45000 8/40 = 9000 units

2. A) Number of buses by Isuzy = 3375 x 7/2 = 7875 units

Number of buses sold by Tata = 3375 x 41/3 = 46125 units

UV s sold Tata = / =

The efo e e % = / = . . %

3. E) Let total vehicles sold by all companies = 100

Vehicles sold by Eicher = 8

Vehicles sold by Tata = 41

SUVs sold by Tata = 41 x 12/20 = 24.6

Therefore Ratio = 8/24.6 = 40/123 = 40.123

4. C) Let total buses sold = 100

Number of Volvos sold = 3

Nu e of MUV s sold Tata = / = /
