• (a)Rs.190 crores
• (b)Rs.210 crores
• (c)Rs.225 crores
• (d)Cannot be determined
• (e)None of the above
Solutions:
Sol.1.(b).export is more than import => export to import ratio is greater than 1.From the graph it is clear that for company A, in the years 1995,1996 and 1997 export is more than import.

Sol.2.(d)Only ratio is given. For getting the difference amount of export or import is needed. So ,difference cannot be determined.

Sol.3.(d)Let the amount of A imports of Company A in 1998 be Rs.x crores  Then, (237/x )= 0.75 => x = 316.

Sol.4.(b)In 1997 for Company A we have :E/I= 1.75 => E=1.75I(read E=Export and I=Import)
Now required import I’=I+I *40/100 =1.4I
New ratio E/I’ = 1.75I / 1.4I =1.25

Sol.5.(b)In 1995 for company A,EA/IA=1.75………..(i)
For company B, EB/IB=0.75…………………………….(ii)
Given EA=2EB....................................................(iii)
Substitute IA=Rs.180 crores in  (i) we get EA= Rs.315 crores.
Substituting value of EA  in (iii) we get EB=Rs. 315/2 crores
IB= EB/ 0.75 = Rs.210 crores.
