Solution:

1).Let the Income be Rs x crores
:. 20 = [(x – 200) / 200] ร 100
or 40 = x โ 200
or x = Rs 240 crores

2).The Income of Company A in 2002 = Rs. 600 crores % profit = 60
Let the expenditure be Rs.  x crores
:. 60 = [(600 – x) / x] ร 100
or, x = [(600  – x) / 60] ร 100
or, 3x = 3000 โ 5x
or. 8x = 3000
or x = [3000] / 8 = Rs. 375 crores

3).It canโt be determined as Income and Expenditure of respective year is not known.

4).Let their equal income be Rs. 1 crores. Also, let expenditure of Company A be Rs. E1crore and that of Company B be Rs E2  crores
Now, 35 = [( I โ E1) / E1] ร 100
or, 35 E1 = 100 I โ 100 E1
or, 135 E1 = 100 I โฆโฆโฆโฆ..(i)
Similarly,
30 = [(I โ E2) / E2] ร 100 I โฆโฆโฆโฆ(ii)
From equations (i) and (ii),
135 E1 = 130 E2
or, E1 / E2 = 130 / 135 = 26 / 27
i.e., E1 : E2 = 26 : 27

5).Production of Company B in year 2000
= 20,000 units, production in year 2001 = 22.5
Thousands  = 22,500 units
Required percentage = [(22,500 โ 20,000) / 20,000] ร100 = 12.5%

6).Required average
= [(7.5 + 10 + 20 + 22.5 + 22.5) / 5] thousands
= 82.5 thousands / 5 = 16,500

7).Total units produced by Company A
= (10 + 12.5 + 15 + 30 + 25) ร 1000 = 92, 500
Total units produced by Company B
= (7.5 + 10 + 20 + 22.5 + 22.5) ร 1000 = 82,500
:. Required difference = 92,500 โ 82,500 = 10,000

8).Income in 2001 โ 2002 = Rs. 250 crores
Expenditure in 2001- 2002 = Rs. 125 crores
:. Percent profit = [(250 – 125) / 125] ร 100 = 100

9).Percent profit in 1999 โ 2000
= [(325 – 250) / 250] ร100 = 30
Percent profit in 2000 โ 2001 = [(350 – 250) / 250] ร 100 = 40
:. Required difference  = 10

10).Required average income
= Rs. (150 + 200 + 325 + 350 + 250) / 5
= Rs. 1275 / 5 crores = Rs. 255 crores

11).Percent profit for year 2001-2002 = 100
1999 โ 2000 = 30
2000 โ 2001 = 40
Now, percent profit in year
1997 โ 98 = [(150 – 50) / 50] ร100 = 200
In 1998 โ 99 = [(200 – 125) / 125] ร 100 = 60

12).Profit earned in year.
1997 โ 98 = Rs (150 – 50) crores = Rs 100 crores
1998 โ 99 =Rs (200 – 125) crores = Rs 75 crores
1999 โ 2000 = Rs (325 – 250) crores = Rs 75 crores
2000 โ 2001 = Rs (350 – 250) crores = Rs 100 crores
2001 โ 2002 = Rs (250 – 125) crores = Rs 125 crores
:. Required average
= Rs. (100 + 75 + 75 +100 + 125)crores / 5
=Rs. (475 / 5) crores
= Rs. 95 crores
