## Introduction to Data Interpretation

#### Data Interpretation

Direction: The following questions are based on the bar graph. Read the graph and answer the questions.

1. What is the percentage increase in the gross traffic receipts in 1995-96 as compared to 1993-94?

1. On the basis of given graph in question ,
The gross traffic receipts in 1995-96 = \$ 7500 million
The gross traffic receipts in 1993-94 = \$ 5300 million
Increase = 7500 - 5300 = \$ 2200 million

 Required percent increase = Increase × 100% The gross traffic receipts in 1993-94

##### Correct Option: B

On the basis of given graph in question ,
The gross traffic receipts in 1995-96 = \$ 7500 million
The gross traffic receipts in 1993-94 = \$ 5300 million
Increase = 7500 - 5300 = \$ 2200 million

 Required percent increase = Increase × 100% The gross traffic receipts in 1993-94

 Required percent increase = 7500 - 5300 × 100 = 41.5% 5300

Direction: Study the bar diagram carefully and answer the following questions.

1. The export to Hongkong is approximately how many times the exports to Germany?

1. According to given bar graph , we have
The export to Hongkong = 10.6
The export to Germany = 1.2

 ∴ Required answer = The export to Hongkong The export to Germany

##### Correct Option: C

According to given bar graph , we have
The export to Hongkong = 10.6
The export to Germany = 1.2

 ∴ Required answer = The export to Hongkong The export to Germany

 ∴ Required answer = 10.6 ≈ 10 1.2

1. The ratio of the total exports to Japan, Belgium and Hongkong to the export to rest of the countries in 1991–92 is nearly :

1. From the given bar diagram , we see
Total exports to Japan, Belgium and Hongkong = 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 = 35.2
Total exports = \$ (22.6 + 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 + 3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 69.6 billion
Total exports of remaining countries = 69.6 - 35.2 = 34.4
Required ratio = Total exports to Japan, Belgium and Hongkong : Total exports of remaining countries

##### Correct Option: A

From the given bar diagram , we see
Total exports to Japan, Belgium and Hongkong = 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 = 35.2
Total exports = \$ (22.6 + 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 + 3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 69.6 billion
Total exports of remaining countries = 69.6 - 35.2 = 34.4
Required ratio = Total exports to Japan, Belgium and Hongkong : Total exports of remaining countries
∴ Required ratio = 35.2 : 34.4 ≈ 35 : 34

1. The country to which twice the export is nearly equal to the average exports in 1991–92 is

1. According to given bar graph , we have
Total exports = \$ (22.6 + 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 + 3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 69.6 billion
Number of countries = 10

 ∴ Average exports = Total exports Number of countries

table>∴ Average exports =
69.6
= \$ 6.96 billion 10

##### Correct Option: D

According to given bar graph , we have
Total exports = \$ (22.6 + 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 + 3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 69.6 billion
Number of countries = 10

 ∴ Average exports = Total exports Number of countries

table>∴ Average exports =
69.6
= \$ 6.96 billion 10
Exports to UAE = \$ 3.3 billion
Hence , required answer is UAE .

1. The ratio of the sum of the exports to the bottom six countries to the total exports to all the given countries in 1991 – 1992 is approximately :

1. On the basis of given graph in question ,
Total exports = \$ (22.6 + 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 + 3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 69.6 billion
Total exports to bottom six countries = \$ (3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 11.8 billion

 Required Ratio = Total exports to bottom six countries Total exports

##### Correct Option: A

On the basis of given graph in question ,
Total exports = \$ (22.6 + 12.5 + 12.1 + 10.6 + 3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 69.6 billion
Total exports to bottom six countries = \$ (3.3 + 2.5 + 1.6 × 3 + 1.2) billion = \$ 11.8 billion

 Required Ratio = Total exports to bottom six countries Total exports

 ∴ Required Ratio = 11.8 ≈ 1 69.6 6
