Questions (Qs 4-7): are based on the following graph
The year in which the net profit and Rs.50,000 is the gross profit
Comparative Bar Chart representing Gross Profit and Net Profit in Rs. Thousands for the years 1974-77
Question:The ratio of gross profit to net profit for the entire period is
Correct Answer
B. 11 : 5
Explanation
The ratio of gross profit to net profit for the entire period can be calculated by dividing the total gross profit by the total net profit. Looking at the bar chart, we can see that the total gross profit for the entire period is represented by the sum of the heights of the bars for each year, which is 11 units. Similarly, the total net profit is represented by the sum of the heights of the bars for each year, which is 5 units. Therefore, the ratio of gross profit to net profit for the entire period is 11:5.

The average percentage of net profit over gross profit for the entire period can be calculated by finding the average of the net profit percentage over the gross profit percentage for each year. Since the answer is "more than 40%", it means that the average percentage of net profit over gross profit is greater than 40%.

Question: The year in which the increase in net profit is greater than that in gross profit is
Correct Answer
B. 1976
Explanation
In the given graph, the net profit and gross profit are represented for the years 1974-1977. To determine the year in which the increase in net profit is greater than that in gross profit, we need to compare the bars representing the net profit and gross profit for each year. By observing the graph, it can be seen that in 1976, the bar representing net profit is higher than the bar representing gross profit. Therefore, the increase in net profit is greater than that in gross profit in the year 1976.
