### Answers and Explanations

**Answer 1. (A)**

Value (in Rs. crore) of tertiary sector in 2004-05

= 2971464 – (650454 + 744755)

= 1576255

Share of tertiary sector in 2004-05

Value (in Rs. crore) of tertiary sector in 2009-10

= 6133230 – (1243566 + 1499601)

= 3390063

Share of tertiary sector in 2009-10

**Answer 2. (D)**

Growth rate in GNP series between :

2005-06 and 2006-07

2006-07 and 2007-08

2007-08 and 2008-09

2008-09 and 2009 – 10

Therefore, it is highest between 2005 – 06 and 2006 – 07.

**Answer 3. (C)**

Value (in Rs. crore) of GDS in 2009-10

= 1.3 × 1798347 = 2337851

Required percentage
