#### Data Interpretation

Direction: Given here is a pie chart showing the cost of gold in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Study the chart and answer the following questions. 1. The percentage increase in the price of gold from the year 2011 to 2013 is

1. According to given pie chart in question ,
The corresponding angle of year 2013 = 135°
The corresponding angle of year 2011 = 75°
Total Increase = 135° - 75° = 60°

 Required percentage increase = Total Increase × 100 The corresponding angle of year 2011

##### Correct Option: D

According to given pie chart in question ,
The corresponding angle of year 2013 = 135°
The corresponding angle of year 2011 = 75°
Total Increase = 135° - 75° = 60°

 Required percentage increase = Total Increase × 100 The corresponding angle of year 2011

 Required percentage increase = 60 × 100 = 80% 75

1. The ratio of the price of gold in the two years 2010 and 2013 is

1. On the basis of given pie chart in question ,
The corresponding angle of year 2013 = 135°
The corresponding angle of year 2010 = 45°
Required ratio = The corresponding angle of year 2010 : The corresponding angle of year 2013

##### Correct Option: B

On the basis of given pie chart in question ,
The corresponding angle of year 2013 = 135°
The corresponding angle of year 2010 = 45°
Required ratio = The corresponding angle of year 2010 : The corresponding angle of year 2013
Required ratio = 45° : 135° = 1 : 3

1. If the price of gold in 2013 is \$ 31,500 per 10 gram, then the price of gold in 2011 per 10 gram is

1. According to given pie chart in question ,
The price of gold in 2013 = \$ 31,500 per 10 gram
The corresponding angle of year 2013 = 135°
The corresponding angle of year 2011 = 75°
∵ 135° ≡ \$ 31500

##### Correct Option: B

According to given pie chart in question ,
The price of gold in 2013 = \$ 31,500 per 10 gram
The corresponding angle of year 2013 = 135°
The corresponding angle of year 2011 = 75°
∵ 135° ≡ \$ 31500

 ∴ 75° ≡ \$ 31500 × 75 = \$ 17500 135

Direction: Study the following pie chart carefully and answer the questions. The pie chart represents the percentage of people involved in various occupations. 1. The difference between the maximum number of people involved and minimum number of people involved in various professions is

1. As per the given pie chart in question ,
Total number of people = 20000
The percent of maximum number of people involved in agriculture = 33.30%
The percent of minimum number of people involved in trade = 6.7%
Difference of corresponding percentages = (33.30 – 6.7)% = 26.6%
∴ Required answer = 26.6% of 20000

##### Correct Option: D

As per the given pie chart in question ,
Total number of people = 20000
The percent of maximum number of people involved in agriculture = 33.30%
The percent of minimum number of people involved in trade = 6.7%
Difference of corresponding percentages = (33.30 – 6.7)% = 26.6%
∴ Required answer = 26.6% of 20000

 Required answer = 20000 × 26.6 = 5320 100

1. The sectoral angle made by the people involved in service in the given pie-chart is

1. According to given pie chart in question ,
Corresponding percentage of service = 20%
We have relation between percentage and degree ,
∴ 100% ≡ 360°

 ∴ 1% ≡ 360 100

##### Correct Option: C

According to given pie chart in question ,
Corresponding percentage of service = 20%
We have relation between percentage and degree ,
∴ 100% ≡ 360°

 ∴ 1% ≡ 360 100

 ∴ 20% ≡ 360 × 20 = 72° 100
