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.

A.

Rs. 800,000

B.

Rs. 8,000,000

C.

Rs. 12,000,000

D.

Rs. 16,000,000

Correct answer is **B**

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

= Rs. 0.8 crores

= Rs. 8,000,000

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%

Correct answer is **C**

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 %

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.

A.

Rs. 250,000

B.

Rs. 360,000

C.

Rs. 375,000

D.

Rs. 410,000

Correct answer is **A**

Amount spent on Basketball exceeds that on Tennis by:

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

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

A.

27%

B.

35%

C.

37.5%

D.

75%

Correct answer is **D**

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%.

What percent of total spending is spent on Tennis?

A.

12 1⁄2%

B.

22 1⁄2%

C.

25%

D.

45%

Percentage of money spend on Tennis = ( (45/360) x 100 ) % = 12 1⁄2%

The following pie-charts show the distribution of students of graduate and post-graduate levels in seven different institutes in a town.

**Distribution of students at graduate and post-graduate levels in seven institutes:**

Total number of students studying at post-graduate level from institutes N and P is

A.

5601

B.

5944

C.

6669

D.

8372

Correct answer is **C**

Required number = (15% of 24700) + (12% of 24700)

= 3705 + 2964

= 6669

The following pie-charts show the distribution of students of graduate and post-graduate levels in seven different institutes in a town.

**Distribution of students at graduate and post-graduate levels in seven institutes:**

A.

13 : 19

B.

21 : 13

C.

13 : 8

D.

19 : 13

Correct answer is **D**

Required ratio = (21% of 24700)/(13% of 27300) = (21 x 24700)/(13 x 27300) = 19/13

The following pie-charts show the distribution of students of graduate and post-graduate levels in seven different institutes in a town.

**Distribution of students at graduate and post-graduate levels in seven institutes:**

How many students of institutes of M and S are studying at graduate level?

A.

7516

B.

8463

C.

9127

D.

9404

Correct answer is **B**

Students of institute M at graduate level= 17% of 27300 = 4641.

Students of institute S at graduate level = 14% of 27300 = 3822.

Therefore Total number of students at graduate in institutes M and S = (4641 + 3822)

= 8463

**Distribution of students at graduate and post-graduate levels in seven institutes:**

A.

14 : 19

B.

19 : 21

C.

17 : 21

D.

19 : 14

Correct answer is **D**

Required ratio = (21% of 24700)/(14% of 27300) = (21 x 24700)/14 x 27300 = 19/14

**Distribution of students at graduate and post-graduate levels in seven institutes:**

What is the total number of graduate and post-graduate level students in institute R?

A.

8320

B.

7916

C.

9116

D.

8099

Correct answer is **D**

Required number = (17% of 27300) + (14% of 24700)

= 4641 + 3458

= 8099.
