# Data Interpretation Practice Problems for IBPS Clerks 2016-17 – Practice SET

**I.Study the following graph carefully and answer the questions that follow:**

**The graph given below represents the number of users of two broadband services A and B across 5 cities P, Q, R, S, and T.**

I.1) What is the total number of users of brand B across all five cities together?

(a) 2700

**(b) 3000**

(c) 3100

(d) 2900

(e) 3200

Total number of users of broadband B across all five cities together = 600 +500 + 650+ 700 +550 = 3000.

I.2) The number of users of brand A in city T is what percent of the number of users of brand B in city Q?

(a) 150

(b) 110

**(c) 140**

(d) 160

(e) 120

The number of users of brand A in city T = 700

The number of users of brand B in city Q = 500

X% of 500 = 700

X = ( 700 * 100 )/500 = 140.

I.3) What is the average number of users of brand A across all five cities together?

(a) 560

(b) 570

**(c) 580**

(d) 590

(e) 550

Average number of users of brand A across all five cities = (500 + 550 + 600 + 550 +700)/5 = 580

I.4) What is the difference between the total number of users of brand A and B together in city R and the total number of users of brand A and B together in city P?

(a) 170

(b) 140

(c) 130

**(d) 150**

(e) 160

Total no. of users of brand A and B in city R = 1250

Total no. of users of brand A and B in city P = 1100

Difference = 1250 -1100 = 150

I.5) What is the respective ratio of the number of users of brand A in city P to the number of users of brand B in city S?

**(a) 5:7**

(b) 4:7

(c) 2:5

(d) 3:4

(e) 5:6

Required Ratio = 500 : 700

II. Study the following pie-charts carefully and answer the questions that follow:

**Percentage of students from different states attending a national seminar **

**Total Students: 8000**

**Percentage of female students from different states attending the national seminar **

**Total Female Students: 3500**

2.1) What is the ratio of the number of female students from Karnataka tot the number of female students from Kerala?

(a) 2:7

**(b) 2:5**

(c) 2:3

(d) 3:7

350/ 875 = 2:5

2.2) What is the total number of male students from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh together?

(a) 2175

(b) 2725

(c) 2527

**(d) 2275**

665 + 1610 = 2275

2.3) What is the ratio of the number of male students from Assam to the number of male students from Madhya Pradesh?

(a) 197: 134

(b) 197: 135

**(c) 197: 133**

(d) 199: 133

985/665 =** 197 : 133**

2.4) What is the ratio of the number of female students from Karnataka to the number of male students from the same state?

**(a) 35: 69**

(b) 32: 69

(c) 38: 69

(d) 35: 67

350 : 690 = 35:69

2.5) The number of female students from Assam is approximate what percent of the number of male students from the same state?

(a) 14

(b) 28

(c) 96

(d) 66

**(e) 46**

(455/985) * 100 = **46.192%.**

III. Following line graph shows the profit earned (in the Rs. Cr) by two companies ‘A’ and ‘B’ during a period of six years. Answer the following questions based on the graph.

3.1) What is the ratio of profit earned by Company ‘A’ in 2000 to the profit earned by Company ‘B’ in the year 2005?

(a) 1:1

(b) 1:2

**(c) 2:1**

(d) 3:2

(e) 2:3

Ratio = 40:20 = 2:1

3.2) Profit earned by the company B in the year 2001 is what percent of the profit earned by Company A in 2003?

(a) 25%

(b) 30%

(c) 60%

**(e) 80%**

= (60/75) * 100 = **80%**

3.3) What is the average profit earned (in Rs.) by company B during the period of 2001 to 2005?

(a) 36 crore

(b) 40 crore

**(c) 42 crore**

(d) 45 crore

(e) 56 crore

Average = (60+ 40+ 40 + 50+ 20)/5 = 210/5 = 42.

3.4) Profit earned by CompanyB in the year 2004 is how much percentage more than that by Company A in the year 2000?

(a) 20%

**(b) 25%**

(c) 40%

(d) 10%

(e) 75%

Percentage = (50 -40)/40 * 100 = 25%.
