## Introduction to Data Interpretation

#### Data Interpretation

Direction: The pie chart drawn below shows the expenses of a family on various items and its savings during the year 2001. Study the graph and answer the questions. 1. The total savings of the family for the year were equal to the expenditure on

1. ∵ Expenditure on housing = Savings = 15%

##### Correct Option: C

∵ Expenditure on housing = Savings = 15%

1. Maximum expenditure of the family was on

1. Maximum expenditure of the family is on food, i.e., 23%.

##### Correct Option: A

Maximum expenditure of the family is on food, i.e., 23%.

Direction: The following questions are based on the pie-chart given below. Study the pie-chart and answer the questions. 1. The “Paper Cost” is approximately what per cent of “Printing Cost”?

1. The required per cent

 = 10 × 100 = 28.6% (approx.) 35

##### Correct Option: B

The required per cent

 = 10 × 100 = 28.6% (approx.) 35

1. The central angle corresponding to the sector on “Printing Cost” is more than that of “Advertisement Charges ” by :

= (35 – 18)% = 17%
Now, 1 % = 3.6°
∴ 17% = 3.6° × 17 = 61.2°

##### Correct Option: B

= (35 – 18)% = 17%
Now, 1 % = 3.6°
∴ 17% = 3.6° × 17 = 61.2°

1. If the “miscellaneous expenses” are \$ 6000. How much more are “binding and cutting charges” than “Royalty”?

1. Difference in per cent cost of ‘binding and cutting charges’ and ‘royalty’
= (18 – 15)% = 3%
Now, Q 4% of total cost = \$ 6000
∴ 3% of total cost

 = \$ 6000 × 3 = \$ 4500 4

##### Correct Option: C

Difference in per cent cost of ‘binding and cutting charges’ and ‘royalty’
= (18 – 15)% = 3%
Now, Q 4% of total cost = \$ 6000
∴ 3% of total cost

 = \$ 6000 × 3 = \$ 4500 4
