1. In how many of the given years were the exports more than imports ?
 1
 2
 3
 4

 Rs 120 Crores
 Rs 220 Crores
 Rs 320 Crores
 Rs 420 Crores
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option C
Explanation:
We are given with the ratio of imports and exports in the line graph.
Let the exports from the company in 1996 was x
then,
272/x = 0.85
=> x = 272/0.85
=> x = 320
Note: Please not that we are given the ratio of imports to exports, so export will will in denominator . 
4. What was the percentage increase in imports from 1997 to 1998 ?
 70
 72
 74
 Data Inadequate
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option D
Explanation:
For calculating the percentage we will need value of exports, imports etc. We are only given with the ratio. So data in Inadequate.
Note: Please note in charts questions, most probably it includes 1 or more than 1 questions which are percentage based. So please clear percentage questions before preparing it. Because this is very scoring section. 
5. If the imports in 1998 was Rs. 250 crores and the total exports in years 1998 and 1999 together was Rs 500 crores, then the imports in 1999 was :
 320 Crore
 420 Crore
 520 Crore
 620 Crore
Answer And Explanation
Answer: Option B
Explanation:
The Ratio of imports to exports for the years 1998 and 1999 are 1.25 and 1.40 respectively.
Let the exports in the year 1998 = Rs. x crores
Then,the exports in the year 1999 = (500x) crores
=> 1.25 = 250/x [because 1.25 is 1998 ratio]
=> x = 250/1.25 = 200 crore
Thus the exports in the year 1999 were 500  200
= 300 crore
Let the imports in the year 1999 = Rs y crore
Then 1.40 = y/300
=> y = 1.40*300 = 420 crore
