Directions: These questions are based on the table and pie charts. The table gives the demand for gas in Million Metric Standard Cubic Metres Per Day (MMSCMPD).

**Question 1: What is the approximate percentage growth in the all India demand for Industry sector between 1999-2000 and 2004-05?**

(a) 53%

(b) 55%

(c) 56%

(d) 52%

**Question 2: Had the all-India fertilizer sector demand shown the same growth rate as the total all-India demand between 1999 and 2004, what would be the share fertilizer sector in total demand in 2004-05?**

(a) 22.74

(b) 24.21

(c) 23.81

(d) 21.91

**Question 3: By what percentage did the Southern demand grow between 1999 and 2004?**

(a) 120.21%

(b) 121.32%

(c) 125.61%

(d) 134.1%

**Question 4: If the all India sector wise demand distribution is exactly the same in South, what is the industry sector demand from north, east and west combined in 2004-05?**

(a) 71.56

(b) 77.456

(c) 78.236

(d) 81.236

**Answer 1:(b)**

Demand of industry in 1999-2000= 50 % of 146.54 = 73.27

Demand of industry in 2004-05 = 40% of 283.9 = 113.56

Increase = 113.56 -73.27 = 40.29.

The percentage increase = (40.29/73.27) x 100 = 54.98%

The correct option is (b)

**Answer 2: (a)**

The demand of fertilizer sector in 1999-00 = 8% of 146.54 = 11.72 units

Total all India demand in 1999-00 = 146.54 units and in 2004-05 is 283.9 units.

So the percentage increase ={(283.9 – 146.54)/(146.54)} x 100 = 93.73%

Now if the growth of the fertilizer sector is 94%, then the share of fertilizer sector in

2004-05 is 11.72 × 1.94 = 22.74 units. The correct option is (a)

**Answer 3: (b)**

The demand in 1999 was 39.90 units and the demand in 2004 was 88.31 units.

Required increase = {(88.31 – 39.9)/39.9}x100= 121.32%

The correct option is (b)

**Answer 4: (c)**

Industry sector = 40 % of (64.81+78.13+52.65) = 78.23.

NOTE: The sector wise distribution for North+East+West will be same as that of South.

Correct option is (c)

(b) 27.2%

(c) 272%

(d) 72%

**Question 2: Which of the following statement is true?**

(a) Literature, mathematics and science books comprise nearly 50% of the book section in numbers

(b) Sports, business and film books account for more than half of the magazines

(c) The value of sports magazines is higher than that of geography books

(d) None of the above

**Question 3: What is the invested amount for literature as a percentage of the total investment of the library in books and magazine section?**

(b) 15.5%

(c) 13.6%

(d) 4%

**Question 4: What is the amount invested in reading material available related to science groupsections put together as a percentage of total value invested in library?**

(a) 16.5%

(b) 13.52%

(c) 15.5%

(d) 18.4%

**Answer 1: (c)**

The value of history books = Rs 14.6 lakh

The value of film magazines = Rs 3.92 lakh

Hence the required percentage = {(14.6 – 3.92)/3.92}x100 = 272.4%

The correct answer is option(c)

**Answer 2: (c)**

As the data is given about the value of the books and not about their numbers, so the statements (a) and (b) need not to be true. But the value of sports magazines is higher than that of geography books as can be seen from the table. Thus, (c) is the correct option.

**Answer 3: (a)**

The Value of the literature books = Rs29.2 lakh and the total investment in books and magazine section = 146 + 28 = Rs174 lakh

So the required percentage = (29.2/174) x 100 = 16.78%

The correct option is (a)

**Answer 4: (b)**

The total investment in books and magazine section = 146 + 28 = Rs 174 lakh

The total value of science material = 20.44 + 3.08 = Rs 23.52 lakh

The required percentage = (23.52/174)x 100 = 13.52%

The correct option is (b)
