Explanation:
1).Let K1 and K2 be present in the ratio of export to import of company C and company D in year 2001.
Import of company/ Export of company = 1.75 = 7/4
Export of company C = 7K1
Import of company C = 4K1
Similarly, export of company D = 3K2
Import of company D = 4K2
According to the question,
7K1 / 3K2 = 2
7K1 = 6 K2 = K1/K2 = 6/7 โฆ(I)
ALSO, 4K2 โ 3K2 = 70 = K2 = 70
As per ( 1) = K1 = 6/7 K2 = 6/7 ร 70 = 60
Important of company C = 4K1 = 4ร60 = 240 million.
Answer: c)
2).Let K1 and K2 be present in the ratio of export to import of company A and company B respectively in year 2003.
Export of company A = K1
Import of company A = 2K1
Export of company B = 3K2
Import of company B = 4K2
Trade deficit (Import โ Export) of company A = K1
Trade deficit of company B = K2
According to the question,
K2 = K1(1+(75/100))
K2 = K2 ร(7/4)
Import of company B/Import of company B = 4K2 / 2K1 = (4ร(7k1/4)) / 2K1 = 7/2
Required ratio = 7 : 2
Answer: d)
3).Let K1 and K2 be present in the ratio of export to import of company E in 2003 and 2004 respectively.
Export of company E in 2003 = 5K1
Import of company E in 2003 = 4K1
Export of company E in 2004 = 2K2
Import of company E in 2004 = K2
According to the question,
5K1 / 2K2 = 4/5ร 25K1 = 8K2
KI/K2 = 8/25ร K1 = (8K2)/25
Required ratio = {5[(8K2) / 25] + 2K2} / {4[(8K2) / 25] + K2} = 90/57 = 30/19= 30 : 19
Answer: a)
4).Let K1 , K2 and K3 be present in the ratio of export to import of companies A, B and C respectively in year 2004.
Total transaction (export + import) of company A = 3K1 + 2K1 = 5K1
Total transaction (export + import) of company B = 5K2 + 4K2 = 9K2
Total transaction (export + import) of company C = K3 + K3 = 2K3
According to the question,
5K1 / 9K2 = 3/4
20 K1 = 27 K2ร K1 : K2 = 20 : 27
9K2 / 2K3 = 4/2
18K2 = 8K3ร K2 : K3 = 8 : 18ร 4 : 9
20 : 27
4 : 9
= K1 : K2: K3 = 108 : 80 : 180 = 54 : 40 : 90
Total export of companies A, B and C / Total import of companies A, B and C
= 3K1 + 5K2+ K3 / 2K1 + 4K2 + K3 = (3ร54+5ร40+9) / (2ร54+4ร40+90) = 452/358
= 226/179ร required ratio 226 : 179
Answer: b)
5).Let K1 be present in the ratio of export to import of company C in year 2004.
Export of company C in year 2004 = K1
Import of company C in year 2004 = K1
From the radar graph,
% increase in export of company C = 20%
Export of company C in 2005 = K1 (1+ 20/100) = 6K1/5
Import of company C in 2005 = K1 (same as that of 2004)
Required ratio = (6K1 / 5) / K1 = 6/5 = 6 : 5
Answer: b)
6).Average annual growth rate = [(1950 โ 300)/(300 ร 4)] ร 100 = 1650/12 =
137.5%
Answer: d)
7).Novaโs turnover in 1998 = 1/4 ร 300 = Rs 75 crores
Novaโs turnover in 2002 = Rs 110 crores
Percentage growth = [(110 – 75) / 75] ร 100 = (35ร100) / 75 = 46.7%
Answer: d)
8). At 25% per annum, the number of distributors increases by 56.25% in two years. At 20% per annum, the turnover increases by 44% in two years.
Turnovertonumber of distributors for Balife in 2000
=[ (78 ร 100 lakh)/ 1.44] / (0.2 lakh / 1.5625) = (7800 / 1.44) ร(1.5625 /0.2) = 42318
Answer: c)
9). Nothing can be inferred about statement 1 as data is given for only top 4 companies.
Statement 2 is definitely true as top 4 companies have approximately 85% of total number of distributors.
Total turnover of top 3 companies = 472 + 165 + 110 = Rs 747 crores
Turnover of all other companies = 1950 – 747 = Rs 1203 crores
Number of companies in the direct selling business will be minimum if all companies other than top 3 companies have turnover almost equal to the turnover of fourth company, ie Balife
Minimum number of companies (excluding top 3) = 1203/78 = 15.4 โ 16
Minimum number of companies = 16 + 3 = 19
Statement 3 is definitely false.
