# Quantitative Aptitude: Data Interpretation Set 26

Directions (1 – 5): Study the following charts carefully and answer the questions that follow: Profit = Revenue – Expenditure 1. What is the approximate difference (in lakhs) between the average revenue of both the companies in the given years?
A) Rs 150
B) Rs 1800
C) Rs 1600
D) Rs 1650
E) Rs 1700
Option C
Solution:

Average revenue of company A = (11600+12800+12800)/3 = 12400
Average revenue of company B = (10800+11200+10400)/3 = 10800
So required difference = (12400-10800) = Rs 1600 lakh
2. What is the approximate difference in expenditure (in lakhs) of company A in the year 2016 with respect to 2014?
A) Rs 866
B) Rs 849
C) Rs 885
D) Rs 871
E) Rs 834
Option D
Solution:

Expenditure of company A in 2016 = (100/114) * 12800 = Rs 11228 lakhs (approx.)
Expenditure of company A in 2014 = (100/112) * 11600 = Rs 10357 lakhs
So required difference = 11228 – 10357 = 871 lakhs
3. What is the total profit (approximate in lakhs) earned by both companies in years 2014?
A) Rs 2135
B) Rs 2275
C) Rs 2026
D) Rs 2427
E) Rs 2247
Option A
Solution:

Revenue of A in 2014 = Rs 11600 lakhs
So expenditure = (100/112) * 11600 = 10357 lakhs (approx)
So profit = 11600 – 10357 = 1243 lakhs
Revenue of B in 2014 = Rs 10800 lakhs
So expenditure = (100/109) * 10800 = 9908 lakhs
So profit = 10800 – 9908 = 892 lakhs
So required total = 1243 + 892 = 2135 lakhs
4. What is the approximate increase/decrease in expenditure (in lakhs) of company B in years 2015 over its previous year?
A) Rs 84
B) Rs 157
C) Rs 234
D) Rs 106
E) Rs 92
Option E
Solution:

Expenditure of company B in 2015 = (100/112) * 11200 = Rs 10000 lakhs
Expenditure of company B in 2014 = (100/109) * 10800 = Rs 9908 lakhs (approx.)
So required difference = 10000 – 9908 = 92 lakhs
5. What is the percentage of revenue of both companies in year 2015 with respect to total revenue of both companies in given time period?
A) 32.67%
B) 34.48%
C) 36.38%
D) 33.83%
E) 35.26%
Option B
Solution:

Revenue of both companies in 2015 = 12800+11200 = 24000
Revenue of both companies in all the years = 11600 +10800 + 12800 + 11200 + 12800 + 10400 = 69600
So required % = (24000/69600) * 100 = 34.48%

Directions (6 – 10): Study the following line chart carefully and answer the questions that follow: 1. If the sales of product A is 5.4 lakh in year 2014 then what will be its sale in the years 2016?
A) 6.035 lakh
B) 8.424 lakh
C) 7.835 lakh
D) 7.234 lakh
E) None of these
Option B
Solution:

Sales of A in 2016 = 540000 * 120/100 * 130/100 = 842400
2. What is the percentage increase in sales of product C from year 2014 to year 2016?
A) 34.35%%
B) 28.75%
C) 30.35%
D) 32.25%
E) 33.25%
Option D
Solution:

Let its sales in 2014 = 100
So Sales of in 2016= 100 * 115/100 * 115/100 = 132.25
So %Increase = (132.25 – 100)/100 * 100 = 32.25%
3. If the sales of product E and D are equal in year 2015 then the sales of product E is approximately what percentage of sales of product D in 2016?
A) 107%
B) 98%
C) 114%
D) 116%
E) 122%
Option D
Solution:

Let the Sales of D & E in year 2015 is x
Then Sales of D in 2016 = x * 125/100 = 1.25x
and that of E in 2016 = x * 145/100 = 1.45x
So required % = 1.45x/1.25x * 100 = 116%
4. If the sales of product F in year 2016 is 16.848 lakh then what was its sales in 2014?
A) 8.8 lakh
B) 7.2 lakh
C) 9.6 lakh
D) 12.7 lakh
E) 11.5 lakh
Option C
Solution:

Sales of F in 2014 = 1684800 * 100/130 * 100/135 = 960000
5. If the sales of product B and D in year 2011 are equal to 6 lakh then what will be the difference between sales of product D in 2016 and that of product B in the same year?
A) 125500
B) 107500
C) 112500
D) 112300
E) 127600
Option C
Solution:

Sales of D in 2016 = 600000 * 135/100 * 125/100 = 1012500
Sales of B in 2016 = 600000 * 125/100 * 120/100 = 900000
So required difference = 1012500 – 900000 = 112500
