Answers and Explanations
Answer 2: c The total saving of the family is 15% of total expenditure which same as the expenditure on housing. Hence, the correct answer is option c.
Answer 3: a We can check from the pie chart that the sum of the percentages of the sectors of transport and other items together is 25% of the total expenditure. Hence, 25% of the total income was spent on transport and other items together. Hence, the correct answer is option a.

Hence, expenditure on education = (12/100)x 100000= Rs. 12000
Hence, the correct answer is option b.
Answer 5: d The difference in the percentage values of the housing and transport costs is 15% – 5% = 10%
Hence, the required difference = (10/100)x 100000= Rs. 10000
Hence, the correct answer is option d.
