**Solution Key:**

**1).** Reqd difference

= (7.14 + 7.41) – (6.80 + 6.97)

= 14.55-13.77 = 0.78 tonnes

**Answer is: C)**

**2).** Total consumption of steel in June=6.8 million tonnes

Total consumption of steel over the given month = 6.98 + 6.84 + 7.31 + 5.75 + 7.56 + 6.8 + 6.29 + 6.97

= 54.5 million tones

Reqd % = (6.8/54.5) x100 = 12.48%

**Answer is: A)**

**3).** Reqd average

= (6.98 + 6.84 + 7.31+ 5.75 + 7.56 + 6.8 + 6.29 + 6.97)/8

=54.5/8 = 6.8125 million tones

**Answer is: B)**

**4).** Total consumption of steel over the given months = 6.98 + 6.84 + 7.31 + 5.75 +

7.56 + 6.8 + 6.29 + 6.97 = 54.5

Total production of steel over the given months = 6.63 + 7.14 + 7.26 + 7.06 + 7.41

+ 7.30 + 6.83 + 6.87 = 56.5

:. Reqd ratio = 54.5/56.5 = 109 : 113

**Answer is: D)**

**5).** Reqd average = (56.5 – 54.5)/8 million tones = 2/8 million tones= 250000 tonnes

**Answer is: B)**

**6).** From the graph, it is clear that in East zone the difference in % values is the maximum, ie 20% – 12% = 8%. So, the difference between the number of appearing students in 2015 and 2016 will be the maximum in East Zone.

**Answer is: D)**

**7).** Reqd % = {[450000×(12/100) × (15/100)]/450000} ×100

= (9/500)×100 = 1.8%, So approx = 2%

**Answer is: A)**

**8).** Reqd Difference,

= 450000 × (28/100) – 465000 × (20/100)

= 126000 – 93000 = 33000

**Answer is: E)**

**9).** Required Average

= [(12+18+12)% of 4.5 lakh + (22+18)% of 4.65 lakh]/2

= (42% of 4.5 lakh + 40% of 4.65 lakh)/2

= [(1.89+1.86)/2] lakh = 1.875 lakh = 187500

**Answer is: E)**

**10).** Reqd %

**Answer is: A)**
