Solution:
Directions (Q. 1-5):
 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Toor Dal 25 30 35 40 45 Moong Dal 40 50 60 60 65 Rajma 35 40 45 50 55 Til 25 30 30 30 35 Poha 30 40 40 40 50

1). Moong in 2014 = 65,Poha in 2014 = 50 ×1.15 = 57.5
Required Value = 2 × 65 + 4×57.5 =360

2).3rd Highest Pulse Factor was in 2011
 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Pulse Factor 155 190 210 220 250

3).
 2009 2013 Increase Toor Dal 25 45 80.00% Moong Dal 40 65 62.50% Rajma 35 55 57.14% Til 25 35 40.00% Poha 30 50 66.67%

4). 2nd Highest Index=2012(2013 was the highest)
 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 Index 1070 1280 1460 1550 1715

5). 2009 Expenditure = 100 × 25 + 90×40+75×35=8725
2012 Expenditure =100×40+90×60+75×50=13150
Percentage Increase =(13150-8725) ×100/8725~=50.7%

Directions (Q. 6-10):
 Toothpaste Families Coolgate 120 Farup 140 Cibacal 160 Palmolie 100 Pepsodebt 180 Meswik 200 Krystal 80
6). From the table,we have 180 users use Pepsodebt.

7).Cibacal-Farup=160-140=20.

8).Krystal =80+20=100
Meswik = 200
Ratio of Meswik to Krystal=200:100=2:1

9).Per Family Cost = 40 × 2 =80
Expenditure=80×200=16,000

10).Palmolie or Coolgate =100+120=220
