## Introduction to Data Interpretation

#### Data Interpretation

Direction: A survey of movie going habits of city dwellers from 5 cities A, B, C, D and E is given below. The first column gives the percentage of viewers in each city who watch less than two movies a week. The second column gives the total number of viewers who view two or more movies per week. Study the table and answer the questions. 1. Which two cities have the same number of movie watchers?

1. On the basis of given table in question ,
Let total number of film watchers be 100% .
In city A , If 60% of them watched less than two movies a week , then 40% watched two or more movie per week .
∴ 40% ≈ 2400

 ⇒ 1% = 2400 40

 Now , 100% = 100 × 2400 = 6000 40

Similarly for city B,
 ⇒ 100% = 100 × 3000 = 3750 80

For city C,
 ⇒ 100% = 100 × 2400 = 16000 15

##### Correct Option: D

On the basis of given table in question ,
Let total number of film watchers be 100% .
In city A , If 60% of them watched less than two movies a week , then 40% watched two or more movie per week .
∴ 40% ≈ 2400

 ⇒ 1% = 2400 40

 Now , 100% = 100 × 2400 = 6000 40

Similarly for city B,
 ⇒ 100% = 100 × 3000 = 3750 80

For city C,
 ⇒ 100% = 100 × 2400 = 16000 15

For city D,
 ⇒ 100% = 100 × 2700 = 6000 45

For city E,
 ⇒ 100% = 100 × 8000 = 32000 25

Hence , A and D cities have the same number of movie watchers , which is 6000 .

1. The highest number of movie watchers in any given city (in the survey) is

1. According to given table,

 ∴ 85% ≡ 2400 × 85 = 13600 15

Direction: The table given below depicts the export of a commodity through four ports in the years 1998 and 1999. 1. The percentage increase in the export of the commodity from the year 1998 to 1999 was the lowest from which port?

1. According to given table, we have
Export of Port C in 1998 = 229 crore rupees
