6. Directions(6-10): Following line graph shows the ratio of exports to imports of two
companies A and B over the period 2000 to 2006.

7. If the import of Company A in 2002 was 96.8 lakh, what was the export of Company A in that year?
32.44 lakh
31.15 lakh
24.2 lakh
20.8 lakh
33.5 lakh
Option C
E(A)/I(A) = 0.25
E = 0.25 × 96.8 = 24.2 lakh

8. If the import of Company A in year 2005 and export of Company B in year 2006 are 86 lakh and 51 lakh respectively, what is the sum of export of Company A in 2005 and import of Company B in 2006?
201.5 lakh
153.8 lakh
185.5 lakh
150.7 lakh
202.5 lakh
Option B
E(A)/I(A) = 0.8
EA = 0.8 × IA = 0.8 × 86 = 68.8 lakh
E(B)/I(B) = 0.6 I(B) = E(B)/0.6 = 51/0.6 = 85 lakh
Sum = 85 + 68.8 = 153.8 lakh

9. The ratio of export to import of Company B in year 2002 was what percentage of the ratio of export to import of Company A in year 2000?
130.0%
125.5%
132.8%
129.2%
137.5%
Option E
In 2004:
E(B)/I(A) = 0.55
In 2002:
E(B)/I(A) = 0.4
Required % = 0.55/0.4*100 = 137.5%

10. If the export of Company A in year 2003 and that of B in year 2000 were 23.4 lakh and 72 lakh respectively, then the import of Company A in year 2003 is what percentage of the import of Company B in year 2000?
81.25%
95.22%
80.32%
78.23%
75.25%
Option A
For A: E/I = 0.3
I = E/0.3 = 23.4/0.3 = 78 lakh
For B: E/I = 0.75
I = E/0.75 = 72/0.75 = 96 lakh
Required% = 78/96*100 = 81.25%

11. If in year 2003 the export of Company B is increased by 125% and its import is decreased by 60%, what will the new ratio of export to import of Company B in 2003?
9:7
11:13
7:8
9:4
10:11
Option D
E/I = 0.4
Let the new export be E1 and import be I1.
Then, E1 = (E+ E*125)/100 = 225E/100
I1 = (I – I*60)/100 = 40*I/100
New Ratio = E1/I1 = 225E/100*100/40*I = 225/40 * E/I = 9:4
