  1. The exports and imports (in crores of Rs) of a country from 2000 to 2007 are given in the following bar chart. If the trade deficit is defined as excess of imports over exports, in which year is the trade deficit 1/5th of the exports?

    1. 2005
    2. 2004
    3. 2007
    4. 2006
Correct Option: D

For 2005, trade defict = (90 – 70) crores = 20 crores

Now ,
1th
of export =
1
(70) crores = 14 crores ≠ 20 crores.
55

Hence option (a) is wrong.
For 2004, Trade defict = (80 – 70) crores = 10 crores
Now ,
1th
of export =
1
(70) crores = 14 crores ≠ 20 crores.
55

Hence option (b) is wrong.
For 2007, Trade defict = (120 – 110) crores = 10 crores
Now ,
1th
of export =
1
(110) crores = 22 crores ≠ 10 crores.
55

Hence option (c) is wrong.
For 2006, Trade defict = (120 – 100) crores = 20 crores
Now ,
1th
of export =
1
(100) crores = 20 crores = Trade deficts
55

Hence option (d) is correct.
