### DI QUIZ:BASED ON NEW PATTERN

Directions: These questions are based on the table and pie charts. The table gives the demand for gas in Million Metric Standard Cubic Metres Per Day (MMSCMPD).   Question 1: What is the approximate percentage growth in the all India demand for Industry sector between 1999-2000 and 2004-05?
(a) 53%
(b) 55%
(c) 56%
(d) 52%

Question 2: Had the all-India fertilizer sector demand shown the same growth rate as the total all-India demand between 1999 and 2004, what would be the share fertilizer sector in total demand in 2004-05?
(a) 22.74
(b) 24.21
(c) 23.81
(d) 21.91
Question 3: By what percentage did the Southern demand grow between 1999 and 2004?
(a) 120.21%
(b) 121.32%
(c) 125.61%
(d) 134.1%
Question 4: If the all India sector wise demand distribution is exactly the same in South, what is the industry sector demand from north, east and west combined in 2004-05?
(a) 71.56
(b) 77.456
(c) 78.236
(d) 81.236

Demand of industry in 1999-2000= 50 % of 146.54 = 73.27
Demand of industry in 2004-05 = 40% of 283.9 = 113.56
Increase = 113.56 -73.27 = 40.29.
The percentage increase = (40.29/73.27) x 100 = 54.98%
The correct option is (b)
The demand of fertilizer sector in 1999-00 = 8% of 146.54 = 11.72 units
Total all India demand in 1999-00 = 146.54 units and in 2004-05 is 283.9 units.
So the percentage increase ={(283.9 – 146.54)/(146.54)} x 100 = 93.73%
Now if the growth of the fertilizer sector is 94%, then the share of fertilizer sector in
2004-05 is 11.72 × 1.94 = 22.74 units. The correct option is (a)
