**The following pie-chart shows the percentage distribution of the expenditure incurred in publishing a Book. Study the pie-chart and the answer the questions based on it. Various Expenditures (in percentage) Incurred in Publishing a Book**

**If for a certain quantity of books, the publisher has to pay ₹ 30,600 as printing cost, then what will be amount of royalty to be paid for these books?****₹ 19.450****₹ 21.200****₹ 21,950****₹ 22,950**

Answer

Let the amount of Royalty to be paid for these books be ₹ r

Then. 20 : 15 = 30.600 : r

r = ₹ 30600 *15/20= ₹ 22,950.

So, **Option D**

**What is the central angle of the sector corresponding to the expenditure incurred on Royalty?****15°****24°****54°****48°**

Answer

Central angle corresponding to Royalty

= 15% of 360°

= 15/100 × 360°= 54°

So, **Option C**

**The price of the book is marked 20% above the C.P. If the marked price of the book is ₹ 180, then what is the cost of the paper used in a single copy of the book?****₹ 36****₹ 37.50****₹ 42****₹ 44.25**

Answer

Clearly, marked price of the book = 120% of C.P.

Also, cost of paper = 25% of C.P

Let the cost of paper for a single book be ₹ n.

Then. 120 : 25 = 180 : n

n = ₹ (25 * 180/120) = ₹ 37.50

So, **Option B**

**If 5500 copies are published and the transportation cost on them amounts to ₹ 82.500 then what should be the selling price of the book so that the publisher can earn a profit of 25%?****₹ 187.50****₹ 191.50****₹ 175.00****₹ 180.00**

Answer

For the publisher to earn a profit of 25%. S.P. = 125% of C.P.

Also, Transportation Cost = 10% of C.P.

Let the S.P. of 5500 books be ₹ x.

Then, 10 : 125 = 82500 : x

x = ₹(125 * 82500/10) = ₹ 10,31,250.

S.P. of one book

= ₹ (1031250/5500)= ₹ 187.50

So, **Option A**

**Royalty on the book is less than the printing cost by :****5%****33.5%****20%****25%**

Answer

Printing Cost of book = 20% of C.P.

Royalty on book = 15% of C.P.

Difference = (20% of C.P.) – (15% of C.P) = 5% of C.P.

Percentage difference

= difference/printing cost * 100%

= 5/20 * 100% = 25%

So, **Option D.**

**Rahul purchased a mobile and sold it for a loss (loss % given in the table). From that money, he purchased another article and sold it for a gain of (Profit % given in the table). What is the overall gain or loss?****Profit of ₹ 21****Profit of ₹ 24****Loss of ₹ 21****Loss of ₹ 24**

Answer

CP = 8400

SP = 8400 × 95/100 = 7980

CP = 7980

SP = 7980 × 105/100 = 8379
