Solutions:
1. (b), for company S, total profit = (270-224) + (378-288) + (290-252) = 46+90+38= 174 crore
For company T. total profit = (216-160) + (294-216) + (348-294) = 56+78+54 = 188 crore
Therefore required difference = 188-174 = Rs. 14 crore.
2. (b), referring to the table it is clear that in 3013 the income of company T is the second lowest i.e. 267 crore
3. (c), profit gained by company S in 2011 = 336-320 = Rs. 16
Profit gained by company S in 2012 = 378-288 = Rs. 90
Required % = (90-16)/16*100 = 462.5%
4. (e), PROFIT % OF COMPANY s IN 2015 = [(392-287)/287*100] = 36.58%
Profit % of company T in 2015 = [(448-369)/369*100] = 21.4%
Required % = 36.58/21.4 * 100 ≈ 171%
5. (a), profit gained by company T in 2011 = (288-192) = Rs. 96
Profit gained by company T in 2013= (260-168) = Rs. 92
Profit gained by company T in 2015 = (448-369) = Rs. 79
Total profit = 96+92+79 = Rs. 267 crore
6. (a), amount budgeted for Electricity and water & telephone bills = 32/100 * Rs. 57,69,190 ≈ 18, 46,141
Funds utilized by Books and stationery, miscellaneous expenditure and Sports = 55/100* Rs. 3509190 19,89,687
Required ratio = 18, 46,141/1930054 ≈ 1:1
7. (b), expenditure on miscellaneous, books and stationery and sports = 55%* Rs. 35,09,190 ≈ Rs. 19,30,000
Amount budgeted for sports and Electricity = 33% * Rs. 57, 69, 190 ≈ Rs. 19, 40, 000.
After making all combination this is closest to total expenditure on miscellaneous, books and stationery and sports.
8. (d), in the areas where the percentage of funds allocation is greater than or equal to percentage of funds utilization, there funds utilization is definitely more than funds utilization. Such areas are Electricity, water & telephone bill, Canteen and sports.
For books and stationery, funds allocation = 12% of Rs. 57, 69,190≈ Rs. 6, 92,300
Funds utilized = 14% * Rs. 35, 09,190≈Rs. 4, 91,290
For miscellaneous, funds allocation = 15% * Rs. 57, 69, 190≈ Rs. 8, 65, 380
Funds utilized = 18% * Rs. 35, 09,190 = Rs. 6, 31, 650
Thus, for none of the areas the amount budgeted have been fully utilized.
9. (b), Amount budgeted for Books and stationery = 18%* 57, 69,190 ≈10, 38,454,
Amount budgeted for books and stationery other than books = 35% of 10, 38, 454≈3, 63,459.
Total expenditure on Books and stationery = 18% of 35, 09,190 = 6, 31,654.
Total expenditure on books and stationery other than Books = 30% * 6, 31,654 = 1, 89,496.
Required difference = 3, 63,459-1, 89,496 = 1, 73,963.
10. (a), total amount budgeted for sports = 23% * 57,69,190 = 13,26,913.7
10%increase takes place so value = 14, 59,605.07
Now percent = [(19%35,09,190)/ 14,59,605.07] 100 ≈ 45.7%
