Directions (8-14): Study the following graph carefully to answer these questions

The graph shows the Percent Profit earned by two companies over different months.
% Profit = (Profit earned/Total investment) * 100

(1) Rs. 2.15 Lakh
(2) Rs. 2.75 Lakh
(3) Rs. 2.85 Lakh
(4) Rs. 1.5 Lakh
(5) None of these

(1) Rs. 4 Lakh
(2) Rs. 4.95 Lakh
(3) Rs. 5.15 Lakh
(4) Rs. 5 Lakh
(5) None of these



1. (3)
Required ratio = 18% of 256000 / 10% of 32000  = 72 : 5

2. (3)
Required percentage = (15 + 10)/20 * 100 = 125%

3. (2)
Required difference = (16 – 10)% of 32000 = 1920

4. (3)
The difference between number of students selected to number of students appeared in entrance exam in 2007
= 12 % of 256000 – 10% of 32000 = 27520
Similarly calculating for all years, the maximum difference will be for 2010.

5. (4)
Required percentage = 32000/256000 = 12.5%

6. (1)
Required percentage =  14% of 32000/15% of 256000 * 100 = 11.67

7. (5)
Required number = (20 + 16)% of 32000 = 11520

8. (2)
Let the investment be x. Now
12.5% of x = 5
x = 40 Lakh

9. (4)
Required Income = (100 +25)/25 = 82 Lakhs

10. (1)
Required Ratio = (100+10) : (100 + 15) = 22 : 23

11. (3)
Let the amount invested by company P and Q be 5x and 3x respectively.
5x + 3x = 24
x = 3.   5x = 15  and  3x = 9
Total profit earned by P and Q in February = 10% of 15 + 15% of 9 = 2.85 Lakh.

12. (3)
Let the amount invested by company P in May be x. Then
125% of 18 = 112.5% of x
x = 20 Lakh

13. (4)
Required ratio = 3*(100+10)/2*(100+17.5) = 66 : 47

14. (5)
Since the investment is not given, we cannot find the profit of two companies.

15. (2)
Average profit in June = (7.5% of 36 + 20%of 36)/2= 4.95 Lakh
