## Introduction to Data Interpretation

#### Data Interpretation

1. In which year the disbursement of loans by all the banks combined together was nearest to the average disbursement of loans over the years?

1. According to given table, we have
Total disbursement of loans by all the banks = 87 + 104 + 113 + 120 = ₹ 424 crore
Number of given years = 4

 Average loan = Total disbursement of loans by all the banks Number of given years

##### Correct Option: B

According to given table, we have
Total disbursement of loans by all the banks = 87 + 104 + 113 + 120 = ₹ 424 crore
Number of given years = 4

 Average loan = Total disbursement of loans by all the banks Number of given years

 Average loan = 424 = ₹ 106 crore 4

Required year = 1996

Direction: Refer to the following table. Read the table and answer the questions.

1. If the average per hectare yield of rice in the country was 30 tons, then the area (approx.) under rice cultivation during the year was approx. (in lakh hectares)

1. Given : - Average per hectare yield of rice = 30 tonnes
Total rice production = 393 lakh tonnes

 Required area = Total rice production Average per hectare yield of rice

##### Correct Option: C

Given : - Average per hectare yield of rice = 30 tonnes
Total rice production = 393 lakh tonnes

 Required area = Total rice production Average per hectare yield of rice

 ∴ Required area = 393 lakh hectares 30

Required area = 13.1 = 13 lakh hectares

1. State P alone accounted for approximately what percentage of wheat production in the country?

1. According to given table, we have
Wheat production in State P = 103 lakh tonnes
Total wheat production in State P = 331 lakh tonnes

 Required percentage = Wheat production in State P × 100 Total wheat production in State P

##### Correct Option: D

According to given table, we have
Wheat production in State P = 103 lakh tonnes
Total wheat production in State P = 331 lakh tonnes

 Required percentage = Wheat production in State P × 100 Total wheat production in State P

 Required percentage = 103 × 100 ≡ 31.11% ≡ 30% 331

1. Jowar was the most important food grain in the State/States :

1. As per the given above table , we see
In the states Q, R and S Jowar recorded highest production

##### Correct Option: A

As per the given above table , we see
In the states Q, R and S Jowar recorded highest production .Here state Q in second highest. Hence , option A is correct answer .

1. What was the proportion of rice production to wheat production in the country?

1. On the basis of given table in question ,
Total rice Production = 45 + 48 + 59 + 41 + 37 + 68 + 57 + 38 = 393 lakh tonnes
Total wheat production = 103 + 86 + 32 + 37 + 22 + 15 + 8 + 28 = 331 lakh tonnes
∴ Required ratio = Total rice Production : Total wheat production

##### Correct Option: C

On the basis of given table in question ,
Total rice Production = 45 + 48 + 59 + 41 + 37 + 68 + 57 + 38 = 393 lakh tonnes
Total wheat production = 103 + 86 + 32 + 37 + 22 + 15 + 8 + 28 = 331 lakh tonnes
∴ Required ratio = Total rice Production : Total wheat production
∴ Required ratio = 393 : 331 = 1.2 : 1
