Q.4) In which of the following years, the difference between the productions of Companies X and Y was the maximum among the given years?

a) 1997

b) 1998

c) 1999

d) 2000

Q.5) The production of Company Y in 2000 was approximately what percent of the production of Company X in the same year?

a) 173%

b) 164%

c) 132%

d) 97%

e) 61%

**Explanation:**

**1. (c) :** Total production of Company X from 1997 to 2002

= 119000+99000+141000+78000+120000+159000 = 716000

and total production of Company Y from 1997 to 2002

=139000+120000+100000+128000+107000+148000=742000

Difference=742000-716000=26000.

**2.(d) :** Require difference = 128000-107000 = 21000.

**3.(a) :** Average number of vehicles manufactured by Company X

= (91/6)* (119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000) = 119333.

**4.(d) :** The difference between the production of Companies X and Y in various years are.

For 1997 = (139000 – 119000) = 20000;

For 1998 = (120000 – 99000) = 21000;

For 1999 = (141000 – 100000) = 41000;

For 2000 = (128000 – 78000) = 50000;

For 2001 = (120000 – 107000) = 13000;

For 2003 = (159000 – 148000) = 11000;

Clearly, maximum difference was in 2000.

**5.(b) :** Required percentage = [( 128000/78000)* 100] % = 164 %.
