**Directions (Q. Nos. 1-4) **Refer to the following line graph which represents the rainfall in- inches during the months of January through July in a particular year in a certain city

In each of these questions, two quantities are given, one in Column A and one in Column B. Compare the two quantities.

Mark answer as

(a) If the two quantities are equal

(b) If the quantity in column B is greater

(c) If the quantity in column A is greater

(d) If the relationship cannot be determined from the information given

**Question 1.**

**Column A** **Column B**

The ratio of rainfall 2 : 3

in the months of

February and July

**Question 2.**

**Column A ** ** Column B**

The average monthly 1.9 inches

Rainfall recorded for the

7 months

**Question 3.**

**Column A ** ** Column B**

25/2% of all the rain The amount of rainfall during the month of February

that fell during the 7

months period

**Question 4.**

**Column A ** ** Column B**

The ratio between the The ratio between the rainfall in April and February

rainfall in May and January

### Answers and Explanations

**Answer 1: (c)**

Month | Rainfall |

January | 0.4 |

February | 1.4 |

March | 2.2 |

April | 2.8 |

May | 2.4 |

June | 1.4 |

July | 2.0 |

Total | 12.6 |

The ratio of rainfall in Feb : July = 1.4/2.0= 0.7:1 . The value of Column B is 2:3 = 0.67 : 1 . Since the value in column A is more than B, the correct option is (c)

**Answer 2: (b)**

Month | Rainfall |

January | 0.4 |

February | 1.4 |

March | 2.2 |

April | 2.8 |

May | 2.4 |

June | 1.4 |

July | 2.0 |

Total | 12.6 |

The average annual rainfall is 12.6/7 = 1.8 ins which is less than 1.9 inch. Since the value in column B is more Than A, the correct option is (b)

**Answer 3: (c)**

Month | Rainfall |

January | 0.4 |

February | 1.4 |

March | 2.2 |

April | 2.8 |

May | 2.4 |

June | 1.4 |

July | 2.0 |

Total | 12.6 |

Total rainfall in 7 months= 12.6= $12\frac{1}{2}%\,\,of\,\,12.6$ =$\frac{25\times 12.6}{200}=$ 1.575 inch The amount of rainfall during the month of February = 1.4 inch The value of the column A is more. Therefore the correct option is (c).

**Answer 4: (c)** Ratio of rainfall in May: January : 2.4:0.4 = 6:1
Ratio of rainfall in April : February : 2.8:1.4 = 2:1
The ratio of column A is more than the ratio of column B.
Therefore correct option is (c)

It would have been better if the data representation was accurate rather than expecting us to take the decimal values for granted

Hey Venkat, feedback noted. We will improve the graph a wee-bit and work on some better representation. Though, on a side note, you should be ready for such tricky representations in the exam.

Thnx for the response 🙂
