Answer:B Explanation:Average annual productions over the given period for various flavours are: For Flavour X = [ 1 x (50 + 40 + 55 + 45 + 60 + 50) ] = 50 lakh bottles. 6 For Flavour Y = [ 1 x (55 + 60 + 50 + 55 + 50 + 55) ] = 54.17 lakh bottles. 6 For Flavour Z = [ 1 x (45 + 50 + 60 + 60 + 45 + 40) ] = 50 lakh bottles. 6 Therefore Maximum average production is for Flavour Y.

What is the difference between the average production of flavour X in 1995, 1996 and 1997 and the average production of flavour Y in 1998, 1999 and 2000?

Answer:C Explanation:Percentage decline in the production of flavour Z in 2000 as compared to the production in 1998 = [ (60 - 40) x 100 ] % 60 = ( 20 x 100 ) % 60 = 33.33% ~= 33%.

Answer:B Explanation:The percentage rise/fall in production from the previous year for flavour Y during various years are: In 1996 = [ (60 - 55) x 100 ] % = 9.09% (increase) 55 In 1997 = [ (60 - 50) x 100 ] % = 16.67% (decrease) 60 In 1998 = [ (55 - 50) x 100 ] % = 10% (increase) 55 In 1999 = [ (55 - 50) x 100 ] % = 9.09% (decrease) 55 In 2000 = [ (55 - 50) x 100 ] % = 10% (increase) 50 Therefore Maximum change is decrease of 16.67% during 1997.
