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 %

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%.
