Solutions:

1-6: In the beginning, please note that all the pie charts add up to hundred, so the shares given are the per cent shares. 
  • Apollo’s share in all segments is 8.3% in 1995-96 = Rs 1245 crore.
  • Total sales in 1995-96 = (1245) (100)/8.3 = Rs 15000 crore;
  • Apollo’s share in car segment is 5.2% = Rs 208 crore.
  • Total sales in car segment = (208) (100)/5.2 = Rs 4000 crore;
  • Total sales in trucks & buses segment = 40% of total sales = (40) (15000)/100 = Rs 6000 crore;
  • Total sales in two- & three-wheeler segment = (15000 - 4000 - 6000) = Rs 5000 crore.




1. Apollo’s sales in two- & three-wheeler segment = (1.5) (5000) / 100 = Rs 75 crore.


2. Sales in the truck & bus segment exceeded that in the car segment by = (6000 - 4000) (100)/(4000) = 50%.


3. Apollo’s sales in truck & bus segment = 16% of 6000 = Rs 960 crore.
Ceat’s sales in two- and three-wheeler segment = 16.9% of 5000 = Rs. 845 crore.
Ceat’s sales in car segment = 21.3% of 4000 = Rs. 852 crore.
Modi Rubber sales in all segments = 8.3% of 15000 = Rs 1245 crore
Among the above, Modi Rubber sales in all segments is the maximum.


4. MRF sales in truck & bus segment = (6000) (17)/(100) = Rs 1020 crore.


5. Apollo’s sales in 1994-95 = (1245)/(1.25) = Rs 996 crore.


6. 18.7% is the overall share of Car segment and Two- and Three-Wheeler segment. Therefore as per the method of alligation: 18.7% is the weighted mean of 21.3% and 16.9%.



7. Total number of units sold by the given companies
= 248.23 + 91.63 + 76.22 + 14.04 + 12.47 + 12.38 + 10.07 + 8.34 + 7.69 + 1.12
= 482.19 = 482190
Total number of units sold = 484000.
Cars sold by companies other than those given in the chart = 484000 - 482190 = 1810


8. 382.12



9. Sales of Ford India Ltd in 2004 = 14.04 × 1.31 = 18.3924
Sale of Hindustan Motors Ltd in 2004 = 10.07 × 0.76 = 7.6532
Difference = 18392 - 7653 = 10739.


10. We can find that only 6 companies managed to sell more than 10000 cars in year 2002.


11. In 2003, combined sales of Hindustan Motors Ltd, Ford India Ltd and Hyundai Motors Ltd
= 10.07 + 14.04 + 91.63 = 115.74
Combined sale of General Motors Ltd, Fiat India Pvt Ltd and Tata Motors Ltd
= 12.47 + 8.34 + 76.22 = 97.03
Required % =  115.74/97.03 x 100 = 119.28 or 120%
