Solution:
1). Debt service ratio = Debt servicing cost / National Income
To bring down the ratio from 8% to 7.5%, national income must rise by 8 / 7.5,
Ie, 16 / 15 times, ie by 1 / 15 × 100 = 6.67%
All other income except Agriculture remains constant.
Agricultural income should rise by 6.67 / 23 × 100 = 29%.

2). External borrowing = 9% of resources available.
65% of external borrowings spent on industrial development
= 65 / 100 × 9% = 5.85% of total resources.
Assuming the budget to be a zero-deficit one, ie rupee earned - rupee spent = 0, we find the proportion of foreign finance (external borrowings) in industrial development
= 5.85 / 14 × 100 = 42%.

3). Again, assuming a zero-deficit budget, 18% of rupee earned = 123,000 million.
Extra money pumped = 32% - 23% = 9%, which is 9 / 18 = 123,000 = Rs 61,500 million.

4). Internal borrowings are decreased by 50%.
Internal borrowings = 0.5 × 17 = 8.5
External borrowings cannot be increased.
Rupee earned by other resources should increase by (8.5 / 74) × 100 = 11.5%

5). Total spend on agriculture and industry = 32 + 14 = 46%
If total spending on industry and agriculture are the same then 23% will be spent on each.
Required reduction = 9 / 32 × 100 = 28.13%

6). By observation, Raasi Cement shows the highest increase in the share price.

7). By observation, it is either Tata or Raasi. Tata’s turnover = 20,000 × 42 = Rs 840,000 Raasi’s turnover = 15,000 × 58 = Rs 870,000 Hence, Raasi’s turnover is highest on 31/7.

8). By observation, it is Goetze and Kesoram.

9). Tata’s turnover on 31/7 was Rs 840,000. On 6/8, it was 49 × 18,000 = Rs 882,000. Percentage change = (882000-840000)/840000 = 5%

10). By observation, it is either Raasi or Kesoram. For Raasi, % increase = (69-58)/58  » 19%
For Kesoram, % increase = (50-41.5)/41.5 = 20%
