Answers

1. (C)

2. (B)
Profit percent of Company Y in 1997 = 35.
Let the income of Company Y in 1997 be Rs. x crores.
Then, 35 = (x-220)/220  x 100  =>  x = 297.
Therefore Income of Company Y in 1997 = Rs. 297 crores.

3. (D)
Let the expenditures of each companies X and Y in 1996 be Rs. x crores.
And let the income of Company X in 1996 be Rs. z crores.
So that the income of Company Y in 1996 = Rs. (342 - z) crores.
Then, for Company X we have:
Substituting z = 168 in (i), we get : x = 120.
Therefore Total expenditure of Companies X and Y in 1996 = 2x = Rs. 240 crores.
Total income of Companies X and Y in 1996 = Rs. 342 crores.
Therefore Total profit = Rs. (342 - 240) crores = Rs. 102 crores.

4. (A)
Let the income of Company X in 1998 be Rs. x crores.
Then, 55 =  (x - 200)/200   x 100     =>     x = 310.
Therefore Expenditure of Company X in 2001 = Income of Company X in 1998 = Rs. 310 crores.
Let the income of Company X in 2001 be Rs. z crores.
Then, 50 =  (z - 310)/310   x 100     =>     z = 465.
Therefore Income of Company X in 2001 = Rs. 465 crores.

5. (D)
Let the incomes of each of the two Companies X and Y in 1999 be Rs. x.
And let the expenditures of Companies X and Y in 1999 be E1 and E2 respectively

6. (B)
The differences between the percentages of candidates qualified to appeared for the give pairs of years are:
For 1994 and 1995 = 50 - 30 = 20.
For 1998 and 1999 = 80 - 80 = 0.
For 1994 and 1997 = 50 - 30 = 20.
For 1997 and 1998 = 80 - 50 = 30.
For 1999 and 2000 = 80 - 60 = 20.
Thus, the maximum difference is between the years 1997 and 1998.

7. (D)
The graph gives the data for the percentage of candidates qualified to appeared and unless the absolute values of number of candidates qualified or candidates appeared is know we cannot compare the absolute values for any two years. Hence, the data is inadequate to solve this question.

8. (C)
The number of candidates appeared in 1998 be X.
Then, 80% of X = 21200
X = (21200 x 100)/(80) = 26500 ( Required number)

9. (D)
The total number of candidates qualified in 1996 and 1997 together, cannot be determined until we know at least, the number of candidates appeared in any one of the two years 1996 or 1997 or the percentage of candidates qualified to appeared in 1996 and 1997 together. Hence, the data is inadequate.

10. (C)
The number of candidates qualified in 1999 = (80% of 26500) = 21200.
Number of candidates qualified in 2000 = ( 33500 - 21200 ) = 12300.
Let the number of candidates appeared in 2000 be x.
Then, 60% of X = 12300
X = ( 12300 x 100)/(60) = 20500.
