## Introduction to Data Interpretation

#### Data Interpretation

Direction: Study the table and answer the questions. The number of 5 types of cycles manufactured by a company over the years is given below : 1. What was the approximate percentage of increase in production of ‘D’ type of the cycle from 1998 to 2000?

1. According to given table, we have
Production of D – type cycles :
Year 1998 ⇒ 105
Year 2000 ⇒ 125
Increase = 125 - 105 = 20

 Percentage increase = 20 × 100 105

##### Correct Option: B

According to given table, we have
Production of D – type cycles :
Year 1998 ⇒ 105
Year 2000 ⇒ 125
Increase = 125 - 105 = 20

 Percentage increase = 20 × 100 105

 Percentage increase = 2000 ≈ 19 % 105

##### Correct Option: B

According to given table, we have

 Viral Kohali’s Batting average = 752 12 - 3

 Viral Kohali’s Batting average = 752 = 83.5 9

 ∴ Required percent = 83.5 - 45 × 100 ≈ 85% 45

1. How many runs were scored by hitting sixes taking all the players together?

1. As per the given above table , we see
Runs scored by sixes = (28 + 32 + 23 + 9 + 5 + 4 + 12 + 6 + 12) × 6 = 131 × 6 = 786

##### Correct Option: C

As per the given above table , we see
Runs scored by sixes = (28 + 32 + 23 + 9 + 5 + 4 + 12 + 6 + 12) × 6 = 131 × 6 = 786
Hence , required answer is 786 runs .
