# Quantitative Aptitude: Data Interpretation Set 8 (SBI PO Pattern)

Directions (1 – 5):
Study the following pie chart and table to answer the following questions:

1. If the total number of people in department B below the age 40 and years and above 40 years is 1320, find the total number of people in the company altogether?
A) 6600
B) 6700
C) 5400
D) 6200
E) 5800
Option A
Solution:

20/100 * total people in company = 1320
So total people in company= 6600
2. If the total number of people in department C is 160, then what is the number of female employees above 40 years in department D?
A) 144
B) 146
C) 125
D) 135
E) 122
Option D
Solution:

10/100 * total people in company = 160
So total people in company= 1600
So female employees above 40 years in department D = 9/16 * 15/100 * 1600 = 135
3. If the total number of employee in department D is 375 and total number of males above 40 years of age and females below 40 years of age is 122 in department F, then what is the number of males below 40 years in department F?
A) 258
B) 266
C) 243
D) 252
E) 247
Option D
Solution:

15/100 * total people in company = 375
So total people in company= 2500
And total people in department F is 20/100 * 2500 = 500
Let total number of employees in dept D below 40 years is x and above 40 years is y. Then
1/10 * y + 3/10 * x = 122 or
3x + y = 1220
Also from above total people in department F is 500 so
x + y = 500
Solve the two equations, x = 360
So number of males below 40 years in department F = 7/10 * 360 = 252
4. If the number of female employees below 40 years and number of male employees above 40 years in department E are 40 and 75 respectively, then find the number of employees in company A.
A) 2160
B) 2090
C) 2450
D) 2370
E) 2280
Option E
Solution:

1/5 * employees below 40 years in E = 40
So employees below 40 years in E = 200
AND
5/12 * employees below 40 years in E = 75
So employees above 40 years in E = 180
So total employees in E = 200+180 = 380
So 5/100 * total employees in company = 380
So total employees in company = 7600
So total employees in dept A = 30/100 * 7600 = 2280
5. If the total number of employee in department A is 255 and total number of males below 40 years of age and females above 40 years of age is 131 in department B, then find the ratio of total number of employees in dept B below 40 years and total number of employees in dept B above 40 years?
A) 6 : 11
B) 3 : 8
C) 5 : 12
D) 10 : 17
E) 7 : 11
Option A
Solution:

30/100 * total people in company = 255
So total people in company= 850
And total people in department B is 20/100 * 850 = 170
Let total number of employees in dept B below 40 years is x and above 40 years is y. Then
9/10 * x + 7/10 * y = 131 or
9x + 7y = 1310
Also
x + y = 170
Solve the two equations, x = 60, y = 110
So ratio = 60 : 110 = 6 : 11

The following table shows the MP, SP, Profit, Profit% and Discount% on 5 different products sold. Some values are missing in the table. Fill in the values and use it to answer the following questions:

1. What is the difference in the MPs of products E and C?
A) Rs 780
B) Rs 830
C) Rs 800
D) Rs 700
E) Rs 920
Option C
Solution:

MP of C = 300
For MP of E:
10/100 * CP = 27
So CP = 270, then SP = 270 + 27 = Rs 297
So MP = 100/(100-73) * 297 = Rs 1100
So difference = 1100 â€“ 300 = Rs 800
Similarly find all values for questions
2. Find the difference in percentage points of discounts given for products E and discounts given for products B and C together.
A) 49%
B) 36%
C) 33%
D) 45%
E) 76%
Option B
Solution:

Discount% for E = 73%
Discount% for B:
10/100 * CP = 22
So CP = 220, then SP = 220 + 22 = 242
MP = 1100, so discount % = (1100-242)/1100 * 100 = 78%
Similarly discount % for C = 31%
So required percentage points = (31+78) â€“ 73 = 36%
3. What is the total of MP of product D and SP of product B?
A) Rs 642
B) Rs 532
C) Rs 628
D) Rs 568
E) Rs 544
Option A
Solution:

For country D:
400 + 242 = Rs 642
4. If a person buys products A and E for their respective selling prices, then what is the resultant discount% given to him?
A) 50.70%
B) 60.20%
C) 48.06%
D) 67.62%
E) 54.50%
Option B
Solution:

Total MP of A and E = 400+1100 = Rs 1500
Total SP of A and E = 300+297 = Rs 597
So discount% = (1500-597)/1500 * 100 = 60.2%
5. Find the profit% given for product F.
A) 16%
B) 12%
C) 18%
D) 15%
E) Cannot be determined
