# Data Interpretation Questions for Bank Exams 2016

**I. Study the following pie-chart carefully to answer the given questions**

Percentage of Students Who are Studying

Different Specializations in a Management Institute.

Total number of Students = 4500.

The ratio of men to women in each Specialization.

Specialization | Men | Women |

HR | 2 | 3 |

Marketing | 7 | 5 |

International Business | 5 | 1 |

Banking | 17 | 10 |

IT | 1 | 2 |

Finance | 5 | 4 |

**1. What is the total number of men studying in the Institute?**

(a) 1665

**(b) 2421**

(c) 2025

(d) 1954

**Solution:** First we have to calculate men and women from pie chart and table for each specialization. It becomes easy to answer other questions also.

Specialization | Men | Women | Total |

HR | 396 | 594 | 990 |

Marketing | 720 | 420 | 720 |

International Business | 675 | 135 | 810 |

Banking | 340 | 200 | 540 |

IT | 315 | 630 | 945 |

Finance | 275 | 220 | 495 |

2421 | 2079 | 4500 |

Number of students in HR

Number of men in HR = 2/5 ×22/100 ×4500 = 2×22×9 = 396.

The number of women in HR = 3/5 ×22/100 ×4500 =594. (This way we have to calculate for each specialization).

From the above, the answer is 2421.

**2.The number of women studying marketing is approximate what percent of the total number of students in the institute?**

**(a) 5 (b) 12 (c) 15 (d) 7**

**Solution: **The required percentage is (300×100)/4500 = 6.6% = 7%.

**3. What is the total number of men studying Banking and International Business?**

(a) 1125

(b) 297

(c) 1015

(d) 594

**Solution:** The required number of men = 675 + 340 =1015.

**4. The number of women studying finance is what percent of the number of men studying the same?**

(a) 80

(b) 65

(c) 95

(d) 70

**Solution:** The required percentage = (220×100)/275.

5. In which specialization do the maximum number of women study?

(a) IT

(b) Marketing

(c) HR

(d) Finance.

**Solution:** From the above solved table. The obvious answer is IT.

(c) 0.5

**(d) 500**
