As per bar chart, Difference will be
[80-65]*100000 = 15,00,000 tonnes
Please note: we multiplied it by 100000, because graph is given in "lakh" tones
2. d
Average production of Company A in the period 2002 – 2005 = ( 55+ 60+ 65+ 50)/4= 57.5
Average production of Company C in the period 2002 – 2005 = (45+ 55+ 75+ 70)/4 =61.25
Required ratio = 61.25 : 57.5 = 2.45 : 2.30 = 49: 46
3. a
Percentage increase in the production of Company C from 2003 to 2005 = ((70-55) / 55) * 100
=(15/55) *100 = 27.27 % ≈ 27%
4. c
Average production of Company A in the period 2001 – 2005 = (70+ 55+ 60+ 65+ 50)/5= 60
Average production of Company B in the period 2001 – 2005 = (55+ 65+ 80+45+ 65)/5= 62
Average production of Company C in the period 2001 – 2005 = (60+45+ 55+ 75+ 70)/5 =61
So company B has the maximum average.
5. e
2001 → % = (55 /70)*100= 78.5 %
2002 → % = (65 / 55)*100= 118.2 %
2003→ % = (80/60)*100= 133.3%
2004→ % = (45/65)*100 = 69.2%
2005→ % = (65/50)*100= 130%
So for 2003 the percentage is highest.
6. c
Average amount of interest paid by the Company during the given period
