From the given bar graph , we see
Percentage expenditure on loans = 17.5%
Percentage expenditure on advertisement, taxes and research and development = (15 + 10 + 5)% = 30%
∵ 17.5% ≡ $ 2.45 billion∴ 30% = 2.45 × 30 17.5
Correct Option: C
From the given bar graph , we see
Percentage expenditure on loans = 17.5%
Percentage expenditure on advertisement, taxes and research and development = (15 + 10 + 5)% = 30%
∵ 17.5% ≡ $ 2.45 billion∴ 30% = 2.45 × 30 17.5
Required answer = $ 4.2 billion

According to given bar graph , we have
The total expenditure on infrastructure and transport = 20 + 12.5 = 32.5%
The total expenditure on taxes and interest on loans = 10 + 17.5 = 27.5%
Required ratio = The total expenditure on infrastructure and transport : The total expenditure on taxes and interest on loansCorrect Option: B
According to given bar graph , we have
The total expenditure on infrastructure and transport = 20 + 12.5 = 32.5%
The total expenditure on taxes and interest on loans = 10 + 17.5 = 27.5%
Required ratio = The total expenditure on infrastructure and transport : The total expenditure on taxes and interest on loans
∴ Required ratio = 32.5 : 27.5 = 13 : 11
 If the expenditure on advertisement is $ 2.10 crores, then the difference between the expenditure on transport and taxes is equal to

On the basis of given graph in question ,
Difference of percentage expenditure on transportation and taxes = 12.5 – 10 = 2.5%
Percent of expenditure on advertisement = 15%
∵ 15% = $ 2.10 billionCorrect Option: C
