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

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?
Correct Answer
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.

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.

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?
Correct Answer
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).
