The correct answer is "Hole in Roof". This can be inferred from the fact that the question asks for the company whose sales were most consistent throughout the year.

### If oranges cost 5 for 75p how many can you buy for £2.80? (Assuming they can be bought singly)

• A.

15

• B.

16

• C.

17

• D.

18

• E.

19

D. 18
Explanation
If oranges cost 5 for 75p, it means that each orange costs 15p (75p divided by 5). To find out how many oranges can be bought for £2.80, we divide £2.80 by 15p. £2.80 divided by 15p equals 18.67, which means that you can buy 18 oranges with £2.80. Since you cannot buy a fraction of an orange, the answer is 18.

### A car left Canterbury at 7.14 am and arrived in Birmingham, 180 miles distant at 10.59 am. What was its average speed in miles per hour?

46

• D.

48

• E.

50

D. 48
Explanation
The car traveled a distance of 180 miles in a time span of 3 hours and 45 minutes. To find the average speed, we divide the total distance by the total time. Converting the time to hours, we have 3 hours and 45 minutes equal to 3.75 hours. Therefore, the average speed of the car is 180 miles divided by 3.75 hours, which equals 48 miles per hour.

### You get a wage increase of 6% plus an extra £5 per week. Your present wages are £250 per week. What will your new wage be?

• A.

£260

• B.

£265

• C.

£270

• D.

£275

• E.

£280

C. £270
Explanation
Based on the information given, the question states that the wage increase is 6% plus an additional £5 per week. To calculate the new wage, we first need to find 6% of £250, which is £15. Then we add the additional £5 per week. So the total increase is £15 + £5 = £20. Adding this increase to the present wage of £250, we get £250 + £20 = £270. Therefore, the new wage will be £270.

0, 5 %

• B.

0, 7 %

• C.

5 %

• D.

7 %

• E.

50 %

A. 0, 5 %
Explanation
Her approximate Return on Sales (ROS) is 0.5%. This means that for every dollar of sales, she is earning 0.5 cents in net income. ROS is a profitability ratio that measures the company's ability to generate profits from its sales. A higher ROS indicates better profitability, while a lower ROS indicates lower profitability. In this case, her ROS is relatively low at 0.5%, suggesting that her net income is only a small portion of her sales.

### If the average price of each PC sold by Manufacturer 2 over all 5 months was £70 what was the total Income of that manufacturer in observed period?

• A.

£1,147,500

• B.

£1,177,80O

• C.

£1,218,000

• D.

£2,365,500

• E.

£3,543,300

C. £1,218,000
Explanation
The total income of Manufacturer 2 in the observed period can be calculated by multiplying the average price of each PC sold (£70) by the total number of PCs sold. Since the average price is given, we can assume that the total number of PCs sold is constant throughout the 5 months. Therefore, the total income can be calculated as £70 multiplied by the total number of PCs sold in the observed period. The correct answer of £1,218,000 implies that Manufacturer 2 sold a total of 17,400 PCs (£1,218,000 ÷ £70 = 17,400).
