Solutions
1. Option AQuantity of Guava at Shop A = 1200 × 10/100 = 120 kg
Quantity of Guava at Shop B = 1000 × 16/100 = 160 kg
So, required difference = 160 ⎯ 120 = 40 kg
2. Option B
Cost of Mango at Shop A = 30 × 1200 × 24/100 = Rs.8640
Cost of apple = 40 × 1200 × 16/100 = Rs.7680
Cost of Orange = 20 × 1200 × 20/100 = Rs.4800
So, required ratio = 8640 : 7680 : 4800
= 9 : 8 : 5
3. Option C
Quantity of Mango at Shop B = 1000 × 24/100 = 240 kg
Quantity of Mango at Shop A = 1200 × 24/100 = 288 kg
So, required % = 288 × 100/240 = 120% of the quantity of Mango at Shop A
4. Option D
Cost of total fruits at Shop A = Cost of Mango + Cost of Apple + Cost of Guava + cost of orange + cost of other fruits
(1200 × 24/100 × 30 + 1200 × 16/100 × 40 + 1200 × 10/100 × 18 + 1200 × 20/100 × 20 + 1200 × 30/100 × 15)
= 8640 + 7680 + 2160 + 4800 + 5400 = Rs.28680
Cost of total fruits at Shop B = (1000 × 24/100 × 30 + 1000 × 14/100 × 40 + 1000 ×
16/100 × 18 + 1000 × 20/100 × 20 + 1000 × 26/100 × 15)
= 7200 + 5600 + 2880 + 4000 + 3900 = Rs.23580
So, required difference = 28680 ⎯ 23580 = Rs.5100
5. Option E
Quantity of Orange at Shop A = 1200 × 20/100 = 240 kg
Quantity of Apple at Shop B = 1000 × 14/100 = 140 kg
So, required % = 240 x 100 / 140 % = 171.42% more than the quantity of Apple at Shop B.
6. Option C
Total domestic investment in 2011 = 5000 + 3000 + 4000 + 2000 + 2500 + 1500 + 3500 = Rs.21500 Crore
Total foreign investment in 2011 = 2000 + 1600 + 2800 + 3000 + 2000 + 2500 + 1000 = Rs.14900 Crore
So, required difference = 21500 ⎯ 14900 = Rs.6600 Crore
7. Option D
Total investment in Metals = 4000 + 2800 + 3500 + 2000 + 3200 + 2200 + 1500 + 500 = Rs.19700 Crore
Total investment in Machinery = 2000 + 3000 + 2500 + 3000 + 3600 + 6000 + 1000 + 1500 = Rs.22600 Crore
So, required ratio = 19700 : 22600 = 197 : 226
8. Option A
Average domestic investment in 2014 = 6000 + 4000 + 1500 + 1000 + 4000 + 1200 + 2000 / 7
= 19700/7 = Rs.2814.28 Crore
9. Option E
Domestic investment in 2013 = 4000 + 5000 + 3200 + 3600 + 3000 + 1500 + 2400 = Rs.22700 Crore
Foreign investment in 2011 = 2000 + 1600 + 2800 + 3000 + 2000 + 2500 + 1000 = Rs.14900 Crore
= 22700 x 100 / 14900
= 152.3%
10. Option B
Average domestic investment in 2011 = Rs.21500/7 Crore
Average investment in transport = 2500 + 2000 + 1500 + 3200 + 3000 + 1600 + 4000 + 1000 / 4 = Rs.4700 Crore
So, required % = 21500 / 7 x 4700 × 100 = 65.34%
