#### Data Interpretation

Direction: Study the following pie-chart and answer the questions. 1. The family actually spent \$ 4672 on grocery. Then the difference in the amount budgeted and spent on grocery is :

1. On the basis of given pie chart in question ,
Actually expenditure on grocery = \$ 4672
Expenditure percent on grocery = 20%
Total salary = \$ 32000 per month
Budgetary expenditure on grocery = 20% of \$ 32000

 Budgetary expenditure on grocery = \$ 32000 × 20 = \$ 6400 100

##### Correct Option: B

On the basis of given pie chart in question ,
Actually expenditure on grocery = \$ 4672
Expenditure percent on grocery = 20%
Total salary = \$ 32000 per month
Budgetary expenditure on grocery = 20% of \$ 32000

 Budgetary expenditure on grocery = \$ 32000 × 20 = \$ 6400 100

Required Difference = Budgetary expenditure on grocery - Actual expenditure on grocery
∴ Required Difference = \$ (6400 – 4672) = \$ 1728

1. The difference in the amount estimated by the family on electricity and call bill is :

1. As per the given pie chart in question ,
Difference in expenditure percent on electricity and call bill = (19 – 6)% = 13%
Total salary = \$ 32000 per month
Required difference = 13% of \$ 32000

##### Correct Option: D

As per the given pie chart in question ,
Difference in expenditure percent on electricity and call bill = (19 – 6)% = 13%
Total salary = \$ 32000 per month
Required difference = 13% of \$ 32000

 Required difference = \$ 32000 × 13 = \$ 4160 100

1. Due to sudden marriage, the family incurs miscellaneous expenditure of \$ 3040 in total. Then the increase in the amount under this head from that budgeted is :

1. According to given pie chart in question ,
Budgetary expenditure on miscellaneous items = 7% of \$ 32000

 Budgetary expenditure on miscellaneous items = \$ 32000 × 7 = \$ 2240 100

##### Correct Option: D

According to given pie chart in question ,
Budgetary expenditure on miscellaneous items = 7% of \$ 32000

 Budgetary expenditure on miscellaneous items = \$ 32000 × 7 = \$ 2240 100

New expenditure = \$ 3040
∴ Increase = \$ (3040 – 2240) = \$ 800

1. The budget estimated by the family on clothing and grocery together is :

1. According to given pie chart in question ,
Expenditure percent on clothing and grocery = (8 + 20)% = 28%
Total salary = \$ 32000 per month
∵ 100% ≡ \$ 32000

 ∴ 1% = \$ 32000 100

##### Correct Option: B

According to given pie chart in question ,
Expenditure percent on clothing and grocery = (8 + 20)% = 28%
Total salary = \$ 32000 per month
∵ 100% ≡ \$ 32000

 ∴ 1% = \$ 32000 100

 ∴ 28% ≡ \$ 32000 × 28 = \$ 8960 100

Direction: In the given pie-chart, the comparative study of the production of Rice, Wheat, Sugar and Tea of a country is given. Study the pie-chart and answer the following questions. 1. The total production of rice, wheat, sugar and tea (in kgs) is 500000 kgs. The production of rice in the country is

1. On the basis of given pie chart in question ,
Total production = 500000 kg
Production percentage of rice = 55%
Production of rice = 55% of 500000 kg

##### Correct Option: C

On the basis of given pie chart in question ,
Total production = 500000 kg
Production percentage of rice = 55%
Production of rice = 55% of 500000 kg

 ∴ Production of rice = 500000 × 55 = 275000 kg. 100
