Data Interpretation Question for IBPS SO 2015 Answers
1. (a)
Total number of assistants = 15% of 7000
Number of direct recruits = 40% of 1050
Now, number of promotee assistants
= 1050 – 420 = 630
Hence, required difference = 630 – 420 = 210
2. (c)
Number of clerk I = 19% of 7000
Number of direct recruits = 90% of 1330
Now, number of promotees = 1330 – 1197 = 133
Hence, required percentage
3. (e)
Number of supervisors = 17% of 7000
4. (b)
Type of employees  Number 
Steno  
Assistant  
Supervisor  
Clerk I  
Clerk II  
Officer I  
Officer II 
Total direct recruitment
= 210 + 420 + 595 + 1197 + 420 + 54 + 539 = 3885
5. (c)
Clerk I has maximum number of direct recruits.
6. (e)
Let the expenditure of company A be
= ₹ 95000
7. (b)
Let the expenditure of company B in 2011 be ₹ 100.
⇒ I_{1}= 100 + 35 = ₹ 135
Now, expenditure in 2012 = ₹ 9
⇒ 405 – I_{2} + 900 = 0
= ₹ 130.5
Hence required %
8. (c)
Expenditure of company A = ₹ 70 lac Then, income of company A in 2010
= ₹ 87.5 lac
Hence, required total = ₹ (87.5 + 131.25) lac = ₹ 218.75 lac
9. (a)
Given that,
10. (d)
Let the expenditure of company ‘A’ be ₹ a
Then, expenditure of company B = ₹ (135.5 – a) lac
[company A] ……. (i)
[company B] …… (ii)
Here, we have three unknowns but two equations.
Hence, I_{1} + I_{2} connot be determined.
11. (a)
Total sales of Ruby
= 200 + 100 + 200 + 200 + 200 = 900
Now, required %
12. (d)
Avg. annual sales of Emerald
∴Required %
13. (c)
It is clear from the chart.
14. (c)
Sales of Topaz in 200809
Sales of topaz in 2014 – 2015 = 200000 × 1.5 = 300000 tonnes
Now, required increase = 300000 – 160000 = 140000 tonnes
15. (a)
Highest % growth can be measured for Topaz.

16. (d)
Number of villages with adequate water supply
= 450+ 108+ 144+ 108 = 810
17. (a)
Number of villages with an adequate supply of water and electricity
= 108 + 144 + 108 = 360
18. (d)
Number of villages with a proper supply of electricity
= 270 + 108 + 144 + 90 + 108 = 720
Number of villages not having proper electric supply = 1800 – 720 = 1080
19. (b)
Number of villages with only proper education facilities = 126
20. (e)
Number of villages with all the facilities =108
