**Data Interpretation Questions for SBI Clerk 2016 Answers**

**1.** (c) Ratio of income (A’s : C’s) = 18 : 3 = 6 : 1

∴ Ratio of their exp.

\(= \frac { 6 x \times \frac { 100 } { 120 } } { x \times \frac { 100 } { 225 } } = 25 : 4\)

**2. **(b)

**3. **(e) Profit fo these Cos. in ₹ cr

A | C | D | E | F |

90 | 18 | 64.3 | 50 | 145 |

**4. **(c) 280 cr

**5. **(a) Income of Company ‘F’ \(= 750 \times \frac { 124 } { 100 }\)

∴ Total income of all the Cos.

\(= 750 \times \frac { 124 } { 100 } \times \frac { 100 } { 25 }\) = ₹ 3720 cr

**6. **(a)

\(Required\quad percentage\quad =\frac { 42 }{ 490 } \times 100=8.571429\)

**7. **(b) Required ratio = 90 : 60 = 3 : 2

**8. **(e)

\(Required\quad percentage=\frac { 64 }{ 640 } \times 100=10%\)

**9. **(c) Required ratio = 280 : 210 = 4 : 3

**10. **(d)

\(Required\quad percentage=\frac { 45 }{ 225 } \times 100=20%\)

**11. **(e) Number of L type products sold by Store F = 48

Store = 40

\(Required\quad percentage=\frac { 48 }{ 40 } \times 100=120\)

**12. **(e) Required ratio = (61 + 54) : (54 + 48) = 115 : 102

**13. **(b)

Average price = ₹\(\frac { ( 16 + 15 + 14.5 + 15.6 + 18.2 + 14.9 ) \times 10 ^ { 3 } } { 6 }\)

= ₹\(\frac { 94.2 } { 6 } \times 10 ^ { 3 } = \mathrm { Rs1 } 5700\)

**14. **(a) Required difference = Rs (60 × 75 – 44 × 15) × 10^{3}

= ₹(4500 – 660) × 10^{3} = ₹ 38.4 lakhs

**15. **(d) Required total amount earned by selling both products M and O by store C = Rs (57 × 5.6 + 48 × 50) × 10^{3}

**Data Interpretation Questions for SBI Clerk 2012 Answers**

**1. **(a) Marks of all student in Chemistry = 90 + 110 + 100 + 120 + 60 = 480

\(\frac { \text { Marks obtained by } 5 \text { in Chemistry } } { \text { Marks of all student in Chemistry } } \times 100\)

\(= \left( \frac { 120 } { 480 } \times 100 \right) \% = 25 \%\)

**2. **(e) Marks obtained by T in Physics = 50

If 14% marks in Physics are increased, new marks = 50 + 7 = 57

### Data Interpretation Questions for SBI Clerk 2011 Exam

**1.** (c) From statements I and II, Let Mr. X’s monthly income = ₹ x. Then

\(\frac { 15 \times x } { 100 } = 4500\)

\(\Rightarrow x = \frac { 4500 \times 100 } { 15 }\) = ₹ 30000

From statements I and III,

\(x \times \frac { 4 } { 5 } \times \frac { 85 } { 100 } = 20400\)

\(\Rightarrow x = \frac { 20400 \times 5 \times 100 } { 4 \times 85 }\) = ₹ 30000

**2. **(a) From Statements I and III, Let Suchitra’s son’s present age be x years.

∴ Suchitra’s present age = 2x years

After 4 years,

\(\frac { 2 x + 4 } { x + 4 } = \frac { 13 } { 24 }\)

We can get the required answer by this relation.

**3. **(d) From all three statements, Seeta’s investment = ₹ \(\left( \frac { 3 } { 8 } \times 2.5 \right)\) = ₹ 93750

Geeta’s investment = ₹ 156250

Ratio of Neeta’s, Seeta’s and Geeta’s profit = 85000 × 24 : 93750 × 18 : 156250 × 18

We can get the share of Neeta if total profit is given.

So data given in all three statements is required to answer the question.

**4. **(d) Let the marked price of the article be ₹ x

From statement II.

\(\frac { 95 \times x } { 100 } = 608\)

\(\Rightarrow x = \frac { 608 \times 100 } { 95 }\) = ₹ 640

From statements I and III,

Marked price

\(= \frac { 128 \times 500 } { 100 }\) = ₹ 640

**5. **(d) Let S_{1} and S_{2} be the speed of train A and B respectively

Time taken by both the trains in crossing each other.

\(\frac { 450 } { \mathrm { S } _ { 1 } + \mathrm { S } _ { 2 } } = 12 , \mathrm { S } _ { 1 } + \mathrm { S } _ { 2 } = 37.5\)

S_{1} and S_{2} can have the so many values. Both statement I and II are not sufficient to find speed of train B.

**6. **(c) Required ratio

= (234 + 350 + 124) : (120 + 234 + 334)

= 708 : 688 = 177: 172

**7. **(a) Number of males in bank D from all the cities together

= 534 + 478 + 235 + 255 + 124 + 358 = 1984

Number of females in the same bank = 454 + 285 + 235 + 175 + 165 + 234 = 1548

∴ Required ratio = 1984 : 1548 = 496 : 387

**8. **(a) Number of males in all banks in Delhi

= 254 + 346 + 366 + 478 + 256 + 346 = 2046

Number of females in the same city

= 456 + 256 + 345 + 285 + 166 + 287 = 1795

∴ Required percentage \(= \frac { 1795 } { 2046 } \times 100 \approx \frac { 1800 } { 2000 } \times 100 \approx 90\)

∴ Required answer = 88

**9. **(b) Required percentage \(= \frac { 116 } { 500 } \times 100 = 23.2\)

**10. **(b) Required average

\(= \frac { 353 + 348 + 399 + 358 + 125 + 278 } { 6 }\)

### Data Interpretation Questions for SBI Clerk 2010 Answers

**1.** (b)Required ratio = 10 : 25 = 2 : 5

**2. **(d) Total number of students from Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh

\(= \frac { 8000 \times ( 28 + 14 ) } { 100 }\)

Number of females from these states

\(= \frac { 3500 \times 31 } { 100 } = 1085\)

∴ Number of male students from these states = 3360 – 1085 = 2275

**3.** (c) Number of male students from Assam

\(= \frac { 8000 \times 18 } { 100 } – \frac { 3500 \times 13 } { 100 }\)

= 1440 – 455 = 985

Number of male students from Madhya Pradesh

\(= \frac { 800 \times 14 } { 100 } – \frac { 3500 \times 13 } { 100 } = 1120 – 455 = 665\)

∴ Required ratio = 985 : 665 = 197 : 133

**4. **(a) Number of male students from Karnataka

\(= \frac { 8000 \times 13 } { 100 } – \frac { 3500 \times 10 } { 100 } = 1040 – 350 = 690\)

Number of females = 350

∴ Required ratio = 350 : 690 = 35 : 69

**5. **(e) Required percentage

\(=\frac { 455 }{ 985 } \times 100\approx 46\)
