(a) 11
(b) 13
(c) 15
(d) 9
(e) None of these

(a) A
(b) E
(c) D
(d) B
(e) C
Q5. If the percentage production of B type cars in 1997 was the same as that of 1996, what would have been the number of cars produced in 1997?
(a) 112500
(b) 120000
(c) 130000
(d) Data inadequate
(e) None of these

Answer & Explanation

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Production of C type cars in 1996
= (70 – 40)% of 450000
= 30% of 450000 = 135000
Production of C type cars in 1997
= (65 – 40)% of 520000
= 25% of 520000 = 130000
∴ Required difference = 5000.
S2. Ans.(e)
Sol. Production of E type cars in 1996
= (100 – 80)% of 450000
= 20% of 450000 = 90000
And in 1997 = 10% of 520000 = 52000
∴ Total production = 90000 + 52000 = 142000.
∴ Required number of cars = 15% of 142000 = 21300
S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Production of A type cars in 1997 = production of A type cars is 1996 (given) 
= (100 – 85)% of 450000 = 67500
∴ Required percentage = 67500/520000× 100 ≈ 13. 
S4. Ans.(c)
Sol. Clearly, by visual inspection D is the desired option.
S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Percentage production of B type cars in 1997 = that in 1996 (given)
= (40 – 15) 25% of 520000 = 130000.
