1
What is the difference between total spending on Agriculture, Indira awas and sports in 2015 and  total spending on Railway, Education and Highway in 2014?
» Explain it
D
 Spending on Agri. in 2015 = 6720 × 20 = 1344 100

 Spending on Indira awas in 2015 = 6720 × 14 = 940.8 100

 Spending on Sports in 2015 = 6720 × 10 = 672 100

Total spending on Agriculture, Indira awas and sports in 2015 = 1344 + 940.8 + 672 = 2956.8 lakh crores
 Spending on railway in 2014 = 5940 × 15 = 891 100

 Spending on Education in 2014 = 5940 × 22 = 1306.8 100

 Spending on Highway in 2014 = 5940 × 10 = 594 100

Total spending on Railway, Education and Highway in 2014 = 891 + 1306.8 + 594 = 2791.8 lakh crores

Hence, required difference = 2956.8 – 2791.8 = 165 lakh crores

Therefore, option (D) is correct.

2
What is the ratio of difference between Education field and Railway field in 2014 to difference between Highway and Indira awas in 2015?
» Explain it
B
 Spending on Education in 2014 = 5940 × 22 = 1306.8 100

 Spending on Railway in 2014 = 5940 × 15 = 891 100

Difference = 1306.8 – 891 = 415.8

 Spending on Highway in 2015 = 6720 × 15 = 1008 100

 Spending on Indra awas in 2015 = 6720 × 14 = 940.8 100

Difference = 1008 – 940.8 = 67.2 lakh crores

 Hence, required ratio = 415.8 = 99 : 16 67.2

Therefore, option (B) is correct.

3
What is the percentage of spending in Indira awas and Others together in both years to the percentage of spending in Education and Highway together in both years?
» Explain it
C
 Spent in Indira awas in 2014 = 5940 × 15 = 891 100

 Spent in Indira awas in 2015 = 6720 × 14 = 940.8 100

 Spent in Others in 2014 = 5940 × 10 = 594 100

 Spent in others in 2015 = 6720 × 10 = 672 100

Total amount spent in Indira awas and others together in both years = 891 + 940.8 + 594 + 672 = 3097.8 lakh crores
 Spent in Education in 2014 = 5940 × 22 = 1306.8 lakh crores 100

 Spent in Education in 2015 = 6720 × 16 = 1075.2 lakh crores 100

 Spent in Highway in 2014 = 5940 × 10 = 594 lakh crores 100

 Spent in Highway in 2015 = 6720 × 15 = 1008 100

Total amount spent in Education and Highway together in both years = 1306.8 + 1075.2 + 594 + 1008 = 3984 lakh crores
 Hence, required percentage = 3097.8 × 100 = 77.75% 3984

Therefore, option (C) is correct.

What is the ratio of spending in education field and Railway field together in 2014 to spending in Highway and Agriculture together in 2015?
» Explain it
A
 Spent in Education in 2014 = 5940 × 22 = 1306.8 100

 Spent in Railway in 2014 = 5940 × 15 = 891 100

Total spent in Education and Railway together in 2014 = 1306.8 + 891 = 2197.8 lakh crores
 Spent in Highway in 2015 = 6720 × 15 = 1008 100

 Spent in Agriculture in 2015 = 6720 × 20 = 1344 100

Total spent in Highway and Agriculture together in 2015 = 1008 + 1344 = 2352 lakh crores
 Hence, required ratio = 2197.8 = 3663 : 3920 2352

Therefore, option (A) is correct.

5
In which field Percentage of spending had increases maximum from 2014 to 2015?
» Explain it
C
 Spent on Railway in 2014 = 5940 × 15 = 891 100

 Spent on Railway in 2015 = 6720 × 15 = 1008 100

 Percentage increase = 1008 – 891 = 13.13% 891

 Spent on Education in 2014 = 5940 × 22 = 1306.8 100

 Spent on Education in 2015 = 6720 × 16 = 1075.2 100

 Percentage decrease = 1306.8 – 1075.2 = 17.72% 1306.8

 Spent on Highway in 2014 = 5940 × 10 = 594 100

 Spent on Highway in 2015 = 6720 × 15 = 1008 100

 Percentage increase = 1008 – 594 = 69.7% 594

 Spent on Agriculture in 2014 = 5940 × 18 = 1069.20 100

 Spent on Agriculture in 2015 = 6720 × 10 = 1344 100

 Percentage increase = 1344 – 1069.2 = 25.7% 1069.2

 Spent on Indira awas in 2014 = 5940 × 15 = 891 100

 Spent on Indira awas in 2015 = 6720 × 14 = 940.8 100

 Percentage increase = 940.8 – 891 = 5.58% 891

 Spent on Sports in 2014 = 5940 × 10 = 594 100

 Spent on Sports in 2015 = 6720 × 10 = 672 100

 Percentage increase = 672 – 594 = 13.13% 594

 Spent on Others in 2014 = 5940 × 10 = 594 100

 Spent on Others in 2015 = 6720 × 10 = 672 100

 Percentage increase = 672 – 594 = 13.13% 594

Hence, maximum percentage increase in Highway field from 2014 to 2015

Therefore, option (C) is correct.
