Solution:
1). Here, expenditure of Foreign Banks in 199798 = Rs 30000 crores.
Expenditure of Foreign Banks in 199899 = 30000 × 1.04 = Rs 31200 crores.
Expenditure of Foreign Banks in 19992000 = 31200 × 1.11 = Rs 34632 crores.
And income of Foreign Banks in 199798 = Rs 30000 crores.
Income of Foreign Banks in 199899 = 30000 × 1.09 = Rs 32700 crores.
Incomes of Foreign Banks in 19992000 = 32700 × 1.12 = Rs 36624 crores.
required difference = 36624 – 34632 = Rs 1992 crores.
Answer: b)
2).Income of New Pvt. Banks in 199899 = Rs 4000 crores
Income of New Pvt. Banks in 199900 = 4000 × 1.37 = Rs 5480 crores
Difference = 5480 – 4000 = Rs 1480 crores
Again, expenditure of New Pvt. Banks in 199899 = Rs 4000 crores
Expenditure of New Pvt. Banks in 199900 = 4000 × 1.44 = Rs 5760 crores
Difference = 5760 – 4000 = Rs 1760 crores
Required percentage =1480 / 1760 × 100 = 84
Answer: c)
3).Let the expenditure of Foreign Banks in 199899 = Rs x crores
Then income of PSU Banks in 199899 = Rs 2x crores
Then income of PSU Banks in 199900 = 2x × 1.17 = Rs 2.34x crores
And expenditure of Foreign Banks in 199900 = x × 1.11 = Rs 1.11x crores
Required ratio = 2.34x / 1.11x = 2. 1 / 1 = 21:10
Answer: b)
4).Let expenditure of Foreign Banks in 199899 = P
Then income of Foreign Banks in 199899 = 4 P
And income of Foreign Banks in 199900 = 4P × 1.12 = 4.48 P
Expenditure of Foreign Banks in 199900 = P × 1.11 = 1.11 P
Required ratio = 4.48P / 1.11P = 4/1.
Answer: b)
5).The constant present in the first week combination is either similar or different from the constant present in the second week combination. Hence we can’t find the expenditures of first and second weeks.
Hence data inadequate.
Answer: d)
6). 1.00 / 1.50 × 100 = 2/3 × 100 = 66 2/3%
Answer: d)
7).He has to consume = 2 × 3 × 7 × 20 = 840 spoonfuls
90 spoonfuls — 1 bottle
840 spoonfuls — 10 bottles
(since he cannot buy 9 1/3 bottles)
Hence expenditure according to the existing prices = 10 × 18.00 = Rs 180.
Answer: b)
8).Since he may change the order in which he takes the tablets, it is not possible to determine.
Answer: c)
