SOLUTIONS WITH SOLUTIONS:
1.    (4): In the year 1994,
Number of light commercial vehicles sold were 112
Number of 2-wheelers sold were 442
So,
(112/442)∗100)=25.33%

2.    (2):
In this question, by referring the table chart, first we need to calculate the increase(in percentage) in sale of Heavy Vehicle in 1994 over 1993
Heavy Vehicle sold in 1993 = 81
Heavy Vehicle sold in 1993 = 107
Increase = 107 - 81 = 26
Now 26 is what percent of 81 ?
(26/81∗100)%=32% aprox.
So increase in sale were 32% in 1994, so get the answer we need to calculate the 132% of 107.
(132/100)∗107=141.24

3.    (3) Required percentage
 =[81/(72+79+248+210+404)100]%=(81/1013)100)%=7.99%=8% approx.
