6. Directions(6-10): Study the following Bar-graph and answer the questions based on it.
Number of Vehicles Manufactured by Two companies over the Years (Number in Thousands). 7. The production of Company B in 2000 was approximately what percent of the production of Company A in the same year?
152%
114%
100%
164%
144%
Option D
Required percentage
= [(128000/ 78000) x 100]%
= 164%

8. What is the difference between the number of vehicles manufactured by Company B in 2000 and 2001?
25500
21000
29000
32000
20000
Option B
Required difference
= (128000 – 107000)
= 21000

9. What is the difference between the total productions of the two Companies in the given years ?
35000
26000
25200
26000
32500
Option B
The productions of Company A in the years 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 are 119000, 99000, 141000, 78000, 120000 and 159000 and those of Company B are 139000, 120000,100000, 128000, 107000 and 148000 respectively.
Total production of Company A from 1997 to 2002 = 119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000
= 716000.
Total production of Company B from 1997 to 2002 = 139000 + 120000 + 100000 + 128000 + 107000 + 148000
= 742000
Difference = (742000 – 716000)
= 26000

10. In which of the following years, the difference between the productions of Companies A and B was the maximum among the given years?
1999
1998
2000
2001
2002
Option C
The difference between the productions of Companies A and B in various years is: For 1997 (139000 – 119000) = 20000.
For 1998 (120000 – 99000) = 21000
For 1999 (141000 – 100000) = 41000
For 2000 (128000 – 78000) = 50000
For 2001 (120000 – 107000) = 13000
For 2002 (159000 – 148000) = 11000
Clearly, maximum difference was in 2000

11. What is the average numbers of vehicles manufactured by Company A over the given period? (Rounded off to nearest integer)
123000
108521
122335

Average number of vehicles manufactured by Company A
= 1/6 *(119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000
= 119333
