Given below is the pie-chart and it shows the percentage division of the expenses acquired in publishing a book. You need to carefully observe and study the pie-chart and the answer the following questions based on the information given below. The following pie-chart will help you with the percentage division of the costs incurred in issuing a book. Read the pie-chart and the answer the following questions carefully.

Question 1: What is the middle angle of the sector equivalent to the costs incurred on Royalty?

  1. 54°
  2. 14°
  3. 25°
  4. 75°
  5. 90°

Answer (a)

Explanation: The middle angle is equivalent to Royalty = (15 % of 360)°
= (15/100 *360)°
= 54°
Therefore the correct option is (a)

Question 2: The cost of the book is distinct as 20 % above the Printing cost. If the distinct cost of the book is Rs. 180 then what is the price of paper used in a only copy of the book?

  1. 37.55
  2. 41.56
  3. 12.78
  4. 54.43
  5. 78.22

Answer (a)

Explanation: 120 % of Printing cost = Marked price of the book
And 25 % = cost of paper
Letís assume the cost of single paper of each book be = k
Then 120 : 25 = 180 : k
K = Rs (25 * 180/120)
= Rs .37.55
Therefore the correct option is (a)

Question 3: Royalty on the book is less than the Printing cost by?

  1. 56 %
  2. 25 %
  3. 12 %
  4. 48 %
  5. None of the above

Answer (b)

Explanation: 20 % of C.P = Printing cost of book
15 % of C.P = Royalty of book
Therefore the difference will be 5 % of C.P
Percentage difference = (Difference/ Printing cost * 100) %
= (5 % of Printing cost / Printing cost * 100) % = 25 %
Therefore the correct option is (b)

Question 4: If for a certain quantity of books, the publisher has to pay Rs. 30, 500 as printing cost then what is the amount of Royalty to be paid for these books?

  1. Rs. 22,955
  2. Rs. 12.154
  3. Rs.78,145
  4. Rs. 32, 145
  5. Rs. 45,127

Answer: (a)

Explanation: Let the amount of Royalty paid for the book be = m
Then 20: 15 = 30,500 : m
M = Rs. (30,500 * 15/20) = Rs. 22,955
Therefore the correct option is (a)

Question 5: If 5500 copies are published and the transportation cost on them amounts to Rs. 82555, then what should be the selling price of the book, so that the publisher gets 25 % profit.

  1. 235.45
  2. 187.50
  3. 245.78
  4. 32.745
  5. 892.74

Answer (b)

Explanation: If the publisher wants to earn 25 % profit then Promotional cost = 125 % of C.P
And Transportation cost = 10 % of C.P
Let the cost of Promotional cost be = n
Then 10 : 125 = 82,555 : n
N = Rs (12 * 82,555/10) = Rs. 1031254
Therefore promotion coast of each book = (1031254/5500) = Rs.187.50
Therefore the correct option is (b)
