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.
