# Pie Chart Questions With Solutions – Data Interpretation

As part of data analysis & data interpretation, pie-chart questions will often ask in most of the competitive exams. In pie-charts, the data is presented in a circle as segments and sectors.

With the analysis of previous exams, We get5 questions are very easy,5 to 10 questions are moderate and 5 to 10 questions in High level or Time-Consuming. If we plan to attempt the questions smartly by skipping the hard and time-consuming questions and plan those questions to attempt at the end of the exam if time permits at last.

Practicing these DI problems with some short tricks makes you do fast calculations and helps in Time Management in Bank Exams. Learning some ** data interpretation short tricks** makes you get a good score in IBPS Bank Exams. In every bank exam, we used to get a minimum of 20 questions to a maximum of 30 questions out of 50 qs in the

**Quantitative Aptitude**Section.

Let us solve some Data Interpretation problems collected from previous question papers of ibps bank exams, sbi exams, ssc, rrb.

**Pie-chart Questions Set- 3**

**3. The Plan Outlays for the five-year Plans II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, and VIII are shown in the pie chart.**

**Study the chart and answer the following questions:**

__The Plan Outlays for the Different Five Year Plans II, III, IV, V, VI, VII and VIII (Rupees in Crores)__
