Country A is said to dominate B or A > B if A has higher percentage in total coverage for both drinking water and sanitation facilities, and, B is said to be dominated by A, or B < A. A country is said to be on the coverage frontier if no other country dominates it. Similarly, a country is not on the coverage frontier if it is dominated by at least one other country.

1. Which countries are the countries on the coverage frontier?
a. India and China
b. Sri Lanka and Indonesia
d. Nepal and Pakistan

2. Which of the following statements are true?

B. India > China and India > Nepal
C. Sri Lanka > China D. China > Nepal
a. A and C
b. B and D
c. A, B and C
d. B, C and D

3. Using only the data presented under ‘sanitation facilities’ columns, it can be concluded that rural population in India, as a percentage of its total population is approximately
a. 76
b. 70
c. 73
d. Cannot be determined

Sudhir, a stockbroker, invested a part of his money in the stock of four companies --- A, B, C and D. Each of these companies belonged to different industries, viz., Cement, Information Technology (IT), Auto, and Steel, in no particular order. At the time of investment, the price of each stock was Rs.100. Sudhir purchased only one stock of each of these companies. He was expecting returns of 20%, 10%, 30%, and 40% from the stock of companies A, B, C and D, respectively. Returns are defined as the change in the value of the stock after one year, expressed as a percentage of the initial value. During the year, two of these companies announced extraordinarily good results. One of these two companies belonged to the Cement or the IT industry, while the other one belonged to either the Steel or the Auto industry. As a result, the returns on the stocks of these two companies were higher than the initially expected returns. For the company belonging to the Cement or the IT industry with extraordinarily good results, the returns were twice that of the initially expected returns. For the company belonging to the Steel or the Auto industry, the returns on announcement of extraordinarily good results were only one and a half times that of the initially expected returns. For the remaining two companies, which did not announce extraordinarily good results, the returns realized during the year were the same as initially expected.

8. What is the minimum average return Sudhir would have earned during the year?
1. 30%
2. 31 ¼ %
3. 32 ½ %
4. Cannot be determined

9. If Sudhir earned a 35% return on average during the year, then which of these statements would necessarily be true?
I. Company A belonged either to Auto or to Steel Industry.
II. Company B did not announce extraordinarily good results.
III. Company A announced extraordinarily good results.
IV. Company D did not announce extraordinarily good results.

1. I and II only              2. II and III only
3. III and IV only           4. II and IV only

10.  If Sudhir earned a 38.75% return on average during the year, then which of these statement(s) would necessarily be true?
I. Company C belonged either to Auto or to Steel Industry.
II. Company D belonged either to Auto or to Steel Industry.
III. Company A announced extraordinarily good results.
IV. Company B did not announce extraordinarily good results.

1. I and II only
2. II and III only
3. I and IV only
4. II and IV only

11. If Company C belonged to the Cement or the IT industry and did announce extraordinarily good results, then which of these statement(s) would necessarily be true?
I. Sudhir earned not more than 36.25% return on average.
II. Sudhir earned not less than 33.75% return on average.
III. If Sudhir earned 33.75% return on average, Company A announced extraordinarily good results.
IV. If Sudhir earned 33.75% return on average, Company B belonged either to Auto or to Steel Industry.

1. I and II only
2. II and IV only
3. II and III only
4. III and IV only

Solutions:

1. B
2. C
3. B
4. C
5. A
6. D
7. A

8). 1
==> 120 (Twice of 10% on 100) + 130 (1 1/2 times of 20% on 100 ) + 130 (No Change) +  140 (No Change) = 520 .:. 30%

9). 2

==> To earn 35 % on average Total should be = 540
Which can be calculated as :
110 (B, No Change) + 130 (1 1/2 times of 20% on 100 Thus A is Auto or Steel ) + 160 (Twice of 30% on 100 thus C is Cement/IT co.) + 140 (D, No Change) = 540

Thus, 2.

10). 3

==> 38.75% avg profit .:. Total sale = 555

120 + 110 + 145 (1 1/2 times of 30% on 100 on C Thus Auto/Steel)  + 180 (Twice of 40% on 100 on D
Thus Cement/IT) = 555

11). 2

160 (Twice of 30% on 100 on C
Thus Cement/IT) + 115 (1 1/2 times of 10% on 100 on A
Thus Auto/Steel)  + 120 + 140 = 535 .:. 33.75% average returns.
