# Quantitative Aptitude: Data Interpretation Set 25

Directions (1 – 5): Study the following table carefully and answer the questions that follow:
A family buys different types of fruits – A, B, C, D each day. The following data shows the quantity and price of these fruits from Monday to Friday in a given week.

B) B
C) C
D) D
E) Both D and C
Option D
Solution:

Fruit A bought = 2+4+3+3.5+4.5+6+5= 28 kg
Fruit B bought = 30 kg
Fruit C bought = 31 kg
Fruit D bought = 31.5 kg
2. On which of the following days did the family spent less on buying fruits?
A) Thursday
B) Friday
C) Tuesday
D) Monday
E) Wednesday
Option E
Solution:

Find only for days given in options
For Thursday = (24*3.5 + 18*4.5 + 24*4.5 + 25*2.5) = 335.5
For Friday = 322
For Tuesday = 304
For Monday = 290
For Wednesday = 251
3. Total expenses on Sunday for buying fruits A and C is what percent of the total expenses on Saturday for buying fruits B and D?
A) 126.28%
B) 131.27%
C) 178.45%
D) 107.34%
E) 123.78%
Option D
Solution:

Expenses on Sunday for buying fruits A and C = 278
Expenses on Saturday for buying fruits B and D = 259
So required % = 278/259 * 100 = 107.34%
4. For which of the following fruits, amount spent on Wednesday increases/decrease by more than 15% with respect to the previous day?
A) Both A and C
B) Both B and D
C) Only A
D) Both A and D
E) Only C
Option D
Solution:

For A amount spent, On Wed = 57, On Tuesday = 74, % decrease = 17/74 * 100 = 22.9%
For B amount spent, On Wed = 74, On Tuesday = 77, % decrease = 3/77 * 100 = 3.9%
For C amount spent, On Wed = 54, On Tuesday = 63, % decrease = 9/63 * 100 = 14.3%
For D amount spent, On Wed = 66, On Tuesday = 90, % decrease = 24/90 * 100 = 26.67%
5. Find the ratio between the total amounts spent on costliest fruit to cheapest fruit on Sunday.
A) 22 : 13
B) 23 : 15
C) 20 : 9
D) 21 : 11
E) None of these
Option D
Solution:

On Sunday,
Amount spent on A = 110
Amount spent on B = 102
Amount spent on C = 168
Amount spent on D = 88
So required ratio = 168 : 88 = 21 : 11

Directions (6-10): Study the following pie-chart to answer the questions that follow:

A shopkeeper has five products – A, B, C, D and E in his shop. The sale of products in a week is shown in the pie-chart. Given that the product A is sold at Rs 55 each and the shopkeeper makes Rs 58,850 by selling products A during the week. 1. What is the number of A products sold in the week?
A) 1130
B) 890
C) 780
D) 1070
E) 990
Option D
Solution:

58,850/55 = 1070
2. If on each D product, a profit of Rs 22 is made, find how much profit the shopkeeper made by selling products D in the week?
A) Rs 13400
B) Rs 18700
C) Rs 12400
D) Rs 16500
E) Rs 14900
Option D
Solution:

A products sold = 1070
So 107/360 * x = 1070, Solve x = 3600
D products sold = 75/360 * 3600 = 750
So profit on these 750 D products = 750*22 = Rs 16500
3. If only 84% of the total available C products in the shop were sold, then what is the number of unsold C products?
A) 110
B) 140
C) 120
D) 150
E) None of these
Option C
Solution:

Total products sold = 3600
So C products sold = 63/360 * 3600 = 630
Now 84% were sold. So 84/100 * x = 630
So total C products in the shop were x = 750
So unsold C products = 750-630 = 120
4. What is the ratio between the number of sold A and E products together and remaining products together?
A) 7 : 11
B) 8 : 13
C) 5 : 11
D) 8 : 15
E) 9 : 15
Option A
Solution:

(107+33) : (82+63+75) = 7 : 11
5. If cost price of each B product was Rs 250 and the shopkeeper earned a profit of 14% on each B product sold, find the total amount he got by selling B product?
A) Rs 2,45,400
B) Rs 2,33,700
C) Rs 2,98,600
D) Rs 2,28,800
E) Rs 2,49,600
Option B
Solution:

B products sold are = 82/360 * 3600 = 820
He sold 1 product at = 114/100 * 250 = Rs 285
So total amount he got by selling B product = 285 * 820 = Rs 2,33,700

6. Pradeep Narayan

mam pie chart wale di mn jb A product kitna sell kia h pucha to hm 55 se kyu divide krenge mam becz total sp dia hai na sare products k…tb hm a ki jo degree value h usse calculate nhi krenge..:::???? means ki
total no of a product = total money obtained by selling product A /cp of product A
aisa nhi hoga mam…i am little bit confused mam…..:)))

1. Shubhra

Nhi aise nhi hoga
I have 4 pens, I sell each for Rs 10 So I make a total of 4*10 = 40 Rs.

So agar i make 40 rs and sold each for rs 10
So total pens were 40/10 na ?

7. Pradeep Narayan

mam in que 3 is this approach ryt
total product sold =3600
total c product sold =630
now 84% =630
=>1%=7.5
=>16%=120……:)

1. Shubhra

Yes
