1.

The circle-graph given here shows the spendings of a country on various sports during a particular year. Study the graph carefully and answer the questions given below it.

If the total amount spent on sports during the year was Rs. 2 crores (i.e 20 million), the amount spent on Cricket and Hockey together was:

A.

Rs. 800,000

B.

Rs. 8,000,000

C.

Rs. 12,000,000

D.

Rs. 16,000,000

Amount spent on Cricket and Hockey together = Rs. [ (81 + 63)/360 x 2 ] crores

= Rs. 0.8 crores

= Rs. 8,000,000

2.

The circle-graph given here shows the spendings of a country on various sports during a particular year. Study the graph carefully and answer the questions given below it.

How much percent less is spent on Football than that on Cricket?

A.

22 2⁄9%

B.

27%

C.

33 1⁄3%

D.

37 1⁄7%

Let the total spendings on sports be Rs. x

Then, Amount spent on Cricket = Rs. ( 81/360 x x ) = Rs. 9x/40

Amount spent on Football = Rs ( 54/360 x x ) = Rs. 3x/20

Difference = Rs. ( 9x/40 - 3x/20 ) = Rs 3x/40

Therefore Required percentage = Rs. [ ((3x/40)/(9x/40)) x 100 ] % = 33 1⁄3 %

3.

The circle-graph given here shows the spendings of a country on various sports during a particular year. Study the graph carefully and answer the questions given below it.

If the total amount spent on sports during the year is Rs. 18,000,000, the amount spent on Basketball exceeds that of Tennis by:

A.

Rs. 250,000

B.

Rs. 360,000

C.

Rs. 375,000

D.

Rs. 410,000

Amount spent on Basketball exceeds that on Tennis by:

Rs. ( (50 - 45)/360 x 18,000,000 ) = Rs. 250,000

4.

The circle-graph given here shows the spendings of a country on various sports during a particular year. Study the graph carefully and answer the questions given below it.

How much percent more is spent on Hockey than that on Golf?

A.

27%

B.

35%

C.

37.5%

D.

75%

Let the total spendings on sports be Rs. x. Then,

Amount spent on Golf = Rs. ( (36/360) x x ) = Rs. x/10

Amount spent on Hockey = Rs ( (63/360) x x ) = Rs. 7x/40

Difference = Rs. ( 7x/40 - x/10 ) = Rs 3x/40

Therefore Required percentage = Rs. [ (3x/40)/(x/10) x 100 ] % = 75%.
