Answer & Explanation

  1. Answer: (A)

Percentage of money spend on Tennis = [(45 /360)] X 100% = 12 ½

  1. Answer: (A)

Let the total spending on sports be Rs. x. Then,

Amount spent on Golf = Rs  [(36x/ 360 )] = Rs. x/ 10

Amount spent on Hockey = Rs [ ( 63x/360)]= Rs. 7x /40

Difference = Rs. [(7x /40) – (x/10)]  = Rs 3x/40

Required percentage = Rs. [ (3x/40)/ x /10) * 100] % = 75%

  1. Answer: (A)

Amount spent on Basketball exceeds that on Tennis by:

Rs. [ (50 – 45)/ 360) * 1,80,00,000]= Rs. 2,50,000.

  1. Answer: (C)

Let the total spending on sports be Rs. x. Then,

Amount spent on Cricket = Rs [( 81/360) * x ) = Rs. 9x/40

Amount spent on Football = Rs [( 54/360) *x] = Rs. 3x/20

Difference = Rs. [ ( 9x /40) – ( 3x/20) ] = Rs. 3x/40

Required percentage = Rs. [ (3x/40/ 9x/40) * 100)] % = 33 1/3 %
