Solution:
1).  Here, expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1997-98 = Rs 30000 crores.
Expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1998-99 = 30000 ร 1.04 = Rs 31200 crores.
Expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1999-2000 = 31200 ร 1.11 = Rs 34632 crores.
And income of Foreign Banks in 1997-98 = Rs 30000 crores.
Income of Foreign Banks in 1998-99 = 30000 ร 1.09 = Rs 32700 crores.
Incomes of Foreign Banks in 1999-2000 = 32700 ร 1.12 = Rs 36624 crores.
required difference = 36624 – 34632 = Rs 1992 crores.

2).Income of New Pvt. Banks in 1998-99 = Rs 4000 crores
Income of New Pvt. Banks in 1999-00 = 4000 ร 1.37 = Rs 5480 crores
Difference = 5480 – 4000 = Rs 1480 crores
Again, expenditure of New Pvt. Banks in 1998-99 = Rs 4000 crores
Expenditure of New Pvt. Banks in 1999-00 = 4000 ร 1.44 = Rs 5760 crores
Difference = 5760 – 4000 = Rs 1760 crores
Required percentage =1480 / 1760 ร 100 = 84

3).Let the expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1998-99 = Rs x crores
Then income of PSU Banks in 1998-99 = Rs 2x crores
Then income of PSU Banks in 1999-00 = 2x ร 1.17 = Rs 2.34x crores
And expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1999-00 = x ร 1.11 = Rs 1.11x crores
Required ratio = 2.34x / 1.11x = 2. 1 / 1 = 21:10

4).Let expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1998-99 = P
Then income of Foreign Banks in 1998-99 = 4 P
And income of Foreign Banks in 1999-00 = 4P ร 1.12 = 4.48 P
Expenditure of Foreign Banks in 1999-00 = P ร 1.11 = 1.11 P
Required ratio = 4.48P / 1.11P = 4/1.

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 canโt find the expenditures of first and second weeks.
6).  1.00 / 1.50 ร 100 = 2/3 ร 100 = 66   2/3%

7).He has to consume = 2 ร 3 ร 7 ร 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 ร 18.00 = Rs 180.
