Solution:
1).

2). Percentage increase of A from 2004 to 2005 = 65 – 35 / 35 × 100 = 85.71

3). Percentage rise/fall in production for B
 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 11.11 20 50 33.33 33.33

4). Percentage production = 70 / 40 × 100 = 175

5). Average production of A = 51.66
Average production of B = 43.33
Average production of C = 30.83
Difference of production = 51.66 - 30.83 = 20.83

6). Export of Textiles and Others in July = 40 / 100 × 32 = \$ 12.8 billion
Export of Gems and Jewellery and Others in October = 46 / 100 × 28 = \$12.8 billion.

7). Export for the first 4 months (Apr-July) = 35 + 22 + 42 + 32 = \$ 131 billion
Export for the last 4 months (Aug-Nov) = (38 + 18 + 28 + 33) = \$ 117 billion
Ratio = 131/117 = 1.119 = 1.12.

8). Gems and Jewellery export for the first 8 months (Apr-Nov) of the year = 0.3 × 248 = \$74.4 billion.
Total value of the exports for the remaining 4 months (Dec-Mar) of the year
= Target - \$74.4 billion = \$120 - \$74.4 = \$45.6 billion = \$46 billion.

9). Textile exports over the period = 0.24 × 248 = \$59.52 billion.
Gems and Jewellery exports over the period = \$74.4 billion
Revenue from Textile exports = 0.12 × 59.52 = \$7.14 billion
Revenue from Gems and Jewellery exports = 0.15 × 74.4 = \$11.16 billion.
Total revenue from these sectors = 7.14 + 11.16 = 18.3 = \$18 billion.

10). April, June and august = 35 + 42 + 38 = 105
May, July and November = 22 + 32 + 33 = 87
105: 87 = 35: 29
