Directions (Q. 1-5): These questions are based on the pie diagrams given below.
Ramesh, a first-year student of management from a well-known institute of management in western India, was doing her internship with a leading public sector bank in India. Her project involved analyzing the market shares of various Indian companies that manufacture and sell fuels and lubes. Halfway through her project, she managed to collect the following information from the sales figures of various companies:
Total sales of lubes for the year Total sales of fuels for the year
2000-2001 = Rs 22,400 crores 2000-2001 = Rs 11,200 crores
Ramesh’s project guide, after reviewing the above information, pointed out the fact that the above figures were inclusive of the considerable volumes of inter-company sales that occur every year.
Therefore the correct market shares of the companies should be arrived at after deducting the inter-company sales figures from the present figures. Ramesh then further collected the following information regarding the inter-company sales.
1. By approximately what percentage did Ramesh overestimate the correct value of the total sales of fuels?
1) 135% 2) 200% 3) 110% 4) 180%
2. If the correct sales figures are considered, then which of the following has the largest percentage share by value of the sales of fuels and lubes put together?
1) PRL 2) OTHERS 3) OICL 4) PBCL
3. If for any company, Sales – Purchases = Profit, then neither fuels nor lubes were profitable for
1) PRL 2) PHCL 3) OTHERS 4) OICL
4. Assuming the information given in the above question to be true, which of the following had the maximum profitability for fuels?
1) OICL 2) PHCL 3) PBCL 4) OTHERS
5. Which of the following had the second largest percentage share by value when the correct sales figures of fuels and lubes put together are considered?
1) OTHERS 2) PHCL 3) OICL 4) PBCL
Directions (Q. 6-10): Following graph shows the production at different plants (A, B, C, D) of Torrent Ltd for four years. The ordinate is production figures in ’000 MTs.
(i) Capacity consumption = Production × 100 / Capacity
(ii) Production is undertaken uniformly during the year.
(iii) Capacity of four plants (in ’000 MTs) in 1996 is as follows: A = 222, B = 160, C = 180, D = 190
(iv) Raw material availability at the plants in 1996 is to produce the following quantities (’000 MTs):
A = 123, B = 148, C = 185, D = 198
6. Which plant has the highest capacity consumption in 1996?
7. Plant D operated only for 8 months in 1993. What would have been the capacity consumption in 1993 if the plant had run for the entire year? [Total capacity of D in 1993 = 190000 MTs]
8. If plant C operated at 60% capacity consumption in 1993 and 80% in 1994, what was the capacity addition during that period?
9. What is the maximum possible production, taking into account raw material availability constraint in 1996?
1) A-222, B-160, C-180, D-190
2) A-123, B-148, C-185, D-198
3) A-123, B-148, C-180, D-190
4) A-123, B-148, C-180, D-198
10. In 1996 bonus is to be given to employees of the plant which produces at least 25% of total company production and which achieves capacity consumption of more than that achieved by the whole company. Which plants received the bonus in 1996?
1) C & D
2) B, C & D
4) None of these
