Solution:
1). Average temperature of Delhi = (20 + 21 + 22 + 25 + 28) / 5 = 23.2ºC
Average temperature of Hyderabad = (15 + 16 + 18 + 20 + 22) / 5 = 18.2ºC
Required difference = (23.2º – 18.2ºC) = 5ºC

2). Average temperature in October = (28 + 22 + 14 + 18 + 38) °C / 5 = 24ºC
Average temperature in July = (21 + 16 + 18 + 20 + 30) °C / 5 = 21ºC
Required difference = (24ºC – 21ºC) = 3ºC

3). Average temperature of Bangalore = (35 + 30 + 32 + 36 + 38)°C / 5 =   34.2ºC
Average temperature of Chennai = (20 + 18 + 16 + 15 + 14) °C / 5 = 16.6ºC
Required % = (34.2°C – 16.6°C) / 16.6º × 100% = 106.02%
106% more than average temperature of Chennai

4). Average temperature of Kochi = (22 + 20 + 22 + 25 + 18) °C / 5     = 21.4ºC
Average temperature of Hyderabad = (15 + 16 + 18 + 20 + 22) °C / 5   = 18.2ºC
Required ratio = 21.4:  18.2 = 107:  91

5). Average temperature in October = 24ºC
Average temperature in August = (22 + 18 + 16 + 22 + 32)ºC / 5 = 22ºC
Average temperature in October is = 24 / 22 × 100 = 109.09%
= 109.09% of   average temperature   in August

6). The difference between the expenditure of company INFOSYS in 2012 and that of TCS in 2007 = 405 × 100 /135 = `300 lakhs

7). Ratio of expenditure to income for company INFOSYS is the least when the percentage profit is maximum. Hence, in 2009 the ratio was least.

8). The ratio of the income of company INFOSYS in 2007 to the expenditure of company TCS in 2010 = 125 / 100 ÷ 100 / 150 = 125 × 150 / 100 × 100 = 18750 / 10000 = 15 : 8

9). Expenditure of TCS in 2012 = 660 × 100 / 165 = `400 lakhs

10). Without knowing the income for different years, the expenditure value can’t be determined
