### Answers and Explanations

**Common Solution for the questions:**

From the given information, we can make the following table:

**Answer 1: (b) **

To find the maximum difference let us take the minimum values from September and the maximum values from October.

From September = 960+360 = 1320.

From October = 3750 +3000 = 6750.

The difference = 6750-1320 = 5430.

The correct option is (b)

**Answer 2: (b)**

There is only one absolute decrease i.e. for E.

The correct option is (b)

**Answer 3: (d)**

Sale of F type tyres in October = 1950.

In September

Sale of A and C = 360 + 2640 = 3000

Sale of C and E= 2640 + 2040 = 4680

Sale of B and D= 1560 + 3000 = 4560

Sale of A and B=360 + 1560 = 1920

The correct option is (d)

**Answer 4: (b)**

For E, there is a decrease in sales and for D, the sales for the two years are equal.

The total sale of all tyres except D and E in September = 12000 – 3000 – 2040 = 6960

The total sale of all tyres except D and E in October = 15000 – 3000 – 1500 = 10500

The required difference = 10500 – 6960 = 3540.

The correct option is (b)

**Answer 5: (d) **

Number of tyres of type D and E sold in September = 3000 + 2040 = 5040

Number of tyres of type D and E sold in October = 3000 + 1500 = 4500

Hence the required percentage = {(5040/4500)} x 100 = 112%

The only correct answer possible is (d)
