Detailed Solutions:
Questions (01 to 05):
The data given can be summarized using the table below.
 Initially Value After Exchange Value P 2 Chess boards, 1 Record Player 2 × 500 + 2000 = 3000 Cycle + Chessboard 1000 + 500 = 1500 Q 3 Cricket Bats 3 × 700 = 2100 Cricket bat + Record Player 700 + 2000 = 2700 R Cycle + Walkman 1000 + 700 = 1700 Camera + Cricket bat + chessboard + Walkman 1500 + 700 + 500 + 700 = 3400 S 2 Cameras 2 × 1500 = 3000 Camera + Cricket bat 1500 + 700 = 2200

1). From the table, P did not have a cricket bat after exchange.
2). Cost = 3000 + 2100 + 1700 + 3000 = 9800.

Questions (06 to 10):
 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 AX1 180 220 240 260 280 AC3 140 160 180 200 220 AC1 120 140 160 180 180 AM1 130 150 150 160 190 AF1 200 210 220 230 270

AC3 shows the highest increase.
 2009 2013 Increase AX1 180 280 55.56% AC3 140 220 57.14% AC1 120 180 50.00% AM1 130 190 46.15% AF1 200 270 35.00%

7). 2012 has the highest Index.
 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Index 980 1300 1400 1500 1400

8). 2009 Expenditure = 77 × 180 + 81 × 120 + 73 × 130 = 33070
2012 Expenditure = 77 × 260 + 81 × 180 + 73 × 160 = 46280
% Increase = (46280 - 33070) × 100/33070 = 39.94%.
Approx = 40%.

9). AX1 in 2014 = 280 × 1.1 = 308
AC1 in 2014 = 180 × 1.2 = 216
Cost = 308 × 5 + 17 × 216 = 5212

10). 2009 Expenditure = 70 × 120 = 8400
2012 Expenditure = 34 × 260 + 36 × 200 = 16040
Percentage Increase = (16040 - 8400) × 100/8400 = 90.95%
Approx= 91%.
