Difference of scores made by Yuvraj Singh in ODI and test matches = 1100 – 960 = 140

Difference of scores made by MS Dhoni in ODI and test matches = 1200 – 1100 = 100

∴   Reqd %

= 40% more

Hence, option B is correct.

2

C
Total scores made by all given players in ODI matches = 440 + 520 + 960 + 1100 + 900 + 1020 = 4940

Total scores made by all given players in test matches = 500 + 640 + 1100 + 1200 + 1000 + 1180 = 5620

∴   Reqd %

 = 4940 × 100% 5620

= 87.9%

Hence, option C is correct.

3
If Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni both played 25 ODI matches in this year, then average score of which player is better?
» Explain it
D
Given that, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni both played 25 ODI matches and from the given graph, it is clear that MS Dhoni scored more in ODI than Yuvraj Singh. Thus, average of MS Dhoni is obviously better than that of Yuvraj.

Hence, option D is correct.

How many players in ODI made score higher than the average score made by all players shown in the graph?
» Explain it
D
Traidtional approach:

Average score in ODI matches

 = 4940 6

= 823.3

Thus, four players made score higher than the average score.

Intuitive approach:

If we align all the given scores in ascending order, we get

440, 520, 900, 960, 1020, 1100

Now, by observation we can deduce the fact that the average (mid value) of the given values will lie somwhere between 440 and 1100; 750 or 850.

Therefore, it's clear that 4 players are there who scored higher than assumed average.

Hence, option D is correct.

Total score made by Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir in test matches is what percentage more/less by score made by Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli in ODI matches?
» Explain it
B
Total score made by Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir in test matches = 500 + 1100 + 1000 = 2600
Total score made by Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli in ODI matches = 520 + 1100 + 1020 = 2640

It's clear from the above info that the score of Test matches is 40 runs less than that of ODI matches.

∴    Reqd%

 = 2640 – 2600 × 100% 2640

= 15.15% less

Hence, option B is correct.
