**Direction for the question **: Study the following graph which shows the demand forecast for the next ten weeks.

**Question 1:** If the forecasted demand is met by having uniform production during the weeks at an average level, then the number of weeks during which demand will not be met is:

(a) 2

(b) 3

(c) 6

(d) None of these

**Question 2:** If the maximum production capacity is 300 units, then the unmet demand in week 3 will be:

(a) 225

(b) 275

(c) 175

(d) All the demand will be met

### Answers and Explanations
