Direction(6 – 10) :Study the following line graph which gives the number of students who joined and left the school in the beginning of the year for six years from 1996 to 2001.

(1) 1999                             (2) 2000
(3) 2001                             (4) 1998

1.    (4):
Explanation: Clearly the exports are more than the imports implies that the ratio of value of imports to exports in less than 1.
So years are 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2000. So these are four years

2.    (1) :
Explanation: Clearly from the line graph we can judge it is minimum in year 1997.

3.    (3) :
Explanation: We are given with the ratio of imports and exports in the line graph.
Let the exports from the company in 1996 was x
then,
272/x = 0.85
=> x = 272/0.85
=> x = 320

4.    (4) :
Explanation:  For calculating the percentage we will need value of exports, imports etc. We are only given with the ratio. So data in Inadequate
Note: Please note in charts questions, most probably it includes 1 or more than 1 questions which are percentage based. So please clear percentage questions before preparing it. Because this is very scoring section.

5.    (2) :
Explanation: The Ratio of imports to exports for the years 1998 and 1999 are 1.25 and 1.40 respectively.
Let the exports in the year 1998 = Rs. x crores
Then,the exports in the year 1999 = (500-x) crores
=> 1.25 = 250/x [because 1.25 is 1998 ratio]
=> x = 250/1.25 = 200 crore
Thus the exports in the year 1999 were 500 - 200
= 300 crore
Let the imports in the year 1999 = Rs y crore
Then 1.40 = y/300
=> y = 1.40*300 = 420 crore

Directions ( 6-10):
6.    (1)
Explanation: Let analyse the graph before answering question.
Number of students in 1995 = 3000 [given]
Number of students in 1996 = 3000-250+350 = 3100
Number of students in 1997 = 3100-450+300 = 2950
Number of students in 1998 = 2950-400+450 = 3000
Number of students in 1999 = 3000-350+500 = 3150
Number of students in 2000 = 3150-450+400 = 3100
Number of students in 2001 = 3100-450+550 = 3200
Above analysis will help us solving problems for this line graph.
Lets be back on question now,
Percentage increase in strength of the school from 1997 to 1998 will be,
= ((3000−2950)/2950
100)%=1.69%
So this is approx equal to 1.7%

7.    (3)
Explanation: Number of students in 1995 = 3000 [given]
Number of students in 1996 = 3000-250+350 = 3100
Number of students in 1997 = 3100-450+300 = 2950
Number of students in 1998 = 2950-400+450 = 3000
Number of students in 1999 = 3000-350+500 = 3150

8.    (4)
Explanation: Number of students in 1995 = 3000 [given]
Number of students in 1996 = 3000-250+350 = 3100
Number of students in 1997 = 3100-450+300 = 2950
Number of students in 1998 = 2950-400+450 = 3000
Number of students in 1999 = 3000-350+500 = 3150
Number of students in 2000 = 3150-450+400 = 3100
Number of students in 2001 = 3100-450+550 = 3200
From from above options we find in 1996 and 2000 number of students was same i.e. 3100

9.    (4)
Explanation: Number of students in 1995 = 3000 [given]
Number of students in 1996 = 3000-250+350 = 3100
Number of students in 1997 = 3100-450+300 = 2950
Number of students in 1998 = 2950-400+450 = 3000
Number of students in 1999 = 3000-350+500 = 3150
Number of students in 2000 = 3150-450+400 = 3100
Number of students in 2001 = 3100-450+550 = 3200
In 2001 students = 3200
In 1998 students = 3000
Required Percentage =(3000/3200
100)%=93.75%
10.  (3)
Explanation: Clearly from the line graph we can judge it was in year 2001.
