### Answers and Explanations

**Answer 1. (a)**

Brooke Bond production is 1.64 (in ‘000 tonnes) which corresponds to 64.8% capacity.

Maximum capacity will be 100%.

For 100% it will be = (100/64.8) x 1.64 = 2.53 approx. in 000 tonnes

**Answer 2. (d)**

This can be represented in the following manner.

Hence, we find that the maxiimum unutilized capacity is for MAC, viz. 1,050 tones.

**Answer 3. (c)**

From the given data we know

Total production =61.3 % with utilization capacity 11.6

100% = 100/61.3 x 11.6 =18.7 approx.

**Answer 4. (d)**

From the data that is given, we cannot say anything about the price of coffee for the companies among others. Therefore the given data is insufficient to deduce the answer.

**Answer 5. (b)**

Total sales of given brands = (31.15 + 26.75 + 15.25 + 17.45) = Rs. 90.6 crore

Total sales value of others = 132.8 – 90.6 = Rs. 42.2 crore

Required percentage = 42.2/132.8 x 100 = 31.8% = 32 % approx.
