Data interpretation is quite different from the other fields tested in the Competitive examinations. Data interpretation or DI as the name suggests tests your ability to perceive data and use the data given to you in the most efficient manner.

I know this sounds a very easy thing to do; you are simply to choose the best possible answer to the question asked. Think about it this way, if you are provided with a lot of information, it will obviously take more time for you to go through the data completely. You should however be prepared enough to solve DI questions for Bank exams or any other competitive exams, no matter the amount of data presented to you.

Data Interpretation Answers and Solution

Ans 1. 4

Ans 2. 3
The total sales (in thousands) of all the seven years for various batteries are:
  • For 4AH = 75 + 90 + 96 + 105 + 90 + 105 + 115 = 676
  • For 7AH = 144 + 126 + 114 + 90 + 75 + 60 + 85 = 694
  • For 32AH = 114 + 102 + 75 + 150 + 135 + 165 + 160 = 901
  • For 35AH = 102 + 84 + 105 + 90 + 75 + 45 + 100 = 601
  • For 55AH = 108 + 126 + 135 + 75 + 90 + 120 + 145 = 799.
Clearly, sales are maximum in case of 32AH batteries.
