Thus, we are sharing with you a practice set of DATA INTERPRETATION to help you prepare better for the upcoming exams. We hope this post will assist you in sharpening your **QUANTITATIVE** skills. All the best !!!! .

**Directions for questions 1 to 3 :**

**A team of 5 players Arpit, Bimal, Chatur, Dinu and Elan participated in a ‘Freaket’ tournament and played four matches (1 to 4). The following table gives partial information about their individual scores and the total runs scored by the team in each match.**

Each column has two values missing. These are the runs scored by the two lowest scorers in that match.None of the two missing values is more than 10% of the total runs scored in that match.

Match-1 |
Match-2 |
Match-3 |
Match-4 |
||

Runs scored by player |
Arpit | 100 | 53 | ||

Bimal | 88 | 65 | 52 | ||

Chatur | 110 | ||||

Dinu | 72 | 75 | 20 | 56 | |

Elan | 60 | 78 | |||

Total |
270 | 300 | 240 | 200 |

**1)**

**What is the maximum possible percentage contribution of Arpit in the total runs scored in the four matches?**

A. 19.7% B. 19.9%

C. 20.1% D. 20.2%

Answer:

**Option A**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

Maximum possible runs scored by Arpit in Match-1 = 27

Maximum possible runs scored by Arpit in Match-3 = 19

Maximum possible percentage contribution:

(27+100+19+53)/(270+300+240+200)x100% = 199/1010×100%

= 19.7%

[/spoiler]

**2)**

**If the absolute difference between the total runs scored by Arpit and Chatur in the four matches is minimum possible then what is the absolute difference between total runs scored by Bimal and Elan in the four matches?**

A. 32 B. 37

C. 27 D. Cannot be determined

Answer:

**Option B**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

Maximum possible total runs scored by Chatur in the four matches = 27 + 30 + 110 + 20 = 187.

In such a case minimum possible total runs scored by Arpit in the four matches = 23 + 100 + 13 + 53 = 189.

Difference = 189 – 187 = 2 (minimum possible) Subsequently total runs scored by Bimal in the four matches = 88 + 65 + 19 + 52 = 224.

Also, total runs scored by Elan in the four matches = 60 + 30 + 78 + 19 = 187

Absolute difference = 224 – 187 = 37

[/spoiler]

**3)**

**The players are ranked 1 to 5 on the basis of the total runs scored by them in the four matches, with the highest scorer getting Rank 1. If it is known that no two players scored the same number of total runs, how many players are there whose rank can be exactly determined?**

A. 0 B. 1

C. 3 D. 5

Answer:

**Option C**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

Individual ranges for total score:

Arpit-> 189-199

Bimal-> 218-224

Chatur-> 182-187

Dinu-> 223

Elan-> 187-188

Least total will be of Chatur (Rank 5)

2nd least will be Elan (Rank 4)

Rank 3 must be of Arpit.

It is not possible to determine the exact ranks of Bimal and Dinu.

*II.***The following pie-chart shows the percentage distribution of the expenditure incurred in publishing a book. Study the pie-chart and the answer the questions based on it.**

Various Expenditures (in percentage) Incurred in Publishing a Book

**1) If for a certain quantity of books, the publisher has to pay Rs. 30,600 as printing cost, then what will be amount of royalty to be paid for these books?**

A. Rs. 19,450 B. Rs. 21,200

C. Rs. 22,950 D. Rs. 26,150

**Option C**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

Let the amount of Royalty to be paid for these books be Rs. r

Then, 20:15 = 30600:r

r = Rs.

__30600 x 15__= Rs. 22,950.

20

[/spoiler]

**2) What is the central angle of the sector corresponding to the expenditure incurred on Royalty?**

Answer: **Option C**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

Central angle corresponding to Royalty = 15% of 360º

= __15__ x 360º

100

= 54º.

[/spoiler]

**3) The price of the book is marked 20% above the C.P. If the marked price of the book is Rs. 180, then what is the cost of the paper used in a single copy of the book?**

Answer: **Option B**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

Clearly, marked price of the book = 120% of C.P.

Also, cost of paper = 25% of C.P

Let the cost of paper for a single book be Rs. n.

Then, 120: 25 = 180: n

n = Rs. __25 x 180__ = Rs. 37.50

120

[/spoiler]

**4) If 5500 copies are published and the transportation cost on them amounts to Rs. 82500, then what should be the selling price of the book so that the publisher can earn a profit of 25%?**

Answer: **Option A**

[spoiler show=”Explanation”]

For the publisher to earn a profit of 25%, S.P. = 125% of C.P.

Also Transportation Cost = 10% of C.P.

Let the S.P. of 5500 books be Rs. x.

Then, 10 : 125 = 82500 : x

x = Rs. __125 x 82500__ = Rs. 1031250.

10

S.P. of one book = Rs. __1031250__ = Rs. 187.50

5500

[/spoiler]

**5) Royalty on the book is less than the printing cost by:**

Answer: **Option D**

Royalty on book = 15% of C.P.

Difference = (20% of C.P.) – (15% of C.P) = 5% of C.P.

Percentage difference =

__Difference__x 100%

Printing Cost

=

__5% of C.P.__x 100%

Printing Cost

= 25%.
