Question
5 out of 25
 

Telecom operators get revenue from transfer of data and voice. Average revenue received from transfer of each unit of data is known as ARDT. In the diagram below, the revenue received from data transfer as percentage of total revenue received and the ARDT in US Dollars (USD) are given for various countries.

 


It is expected that by 2010, revenue from data transfer as a percentage of total revenue will triple for India and
double for Sweden. Assume that in 2010, the total revenue in India is twice that of Sweden and that the volume of data transfer is same in both the countries. What is the percentage increase of ARDT in India if there is no change in ARDT in Sweden?



A 400%
B 550%
C 800%
D 950%

From statements (vii), (viii) and (ix), we get,

R

Q

 

Yellow

Green

 

 

Further, T is opposite to S and the colour of S is Red. From (x), the colour of house P is white, hence, the colour of house T is blue.

Now, from (v) and (x), we get

> S, Q > P > R

From (vi), U is the shortest.

i.e., the order of houses in the descending order of their heights is T, S/Q, Q/S, P, R, U.


Ans. C Revenue from data transfer as a percentage of total revenue in 2010:

For India = 3 9% = 27%

For Sweden = 2 18% = 36%

Total revenue in 2010 (India) = 2 Total revenue in 2010 (Sweden) (Assume a)

In 2010, the volume of the data transfer in each country be b

ARDT in Sweden in 2010 = $6, So,

Let ARDT in India in 2010 be c, then 100 = 27 & & c = $9

So, percentage increase = 100 = 800%

Hence, option C. is the answer.

Abdul, Bikram and Chetan are three professional traders who trade in shares of a company XYZ Ltd. Abdul follows the strategy of buying at the opening of the day at 10 am and selling the whole lot at the close of the day at 3 pm. Bikram follows the strategy of buying at hourly intervals: 10 am, 11 am, 12 noon, 1 pm and 2 pm, and selling the whole lot at the close of the day. Further, he buys an equal number of shares in each purchase. Chetan follows a similar pattern as Bikram but his strategy is somewhat different. Chetan’s total investment amount is divided equally among his purchases. The profit or loss made by each investor is the difference between the sales values at the close of the day less the investment in purchase. The “return” for each investor is defined as the ratio of the profit or loss to the investment amount expressed as a percentage. One day, two other traders, Dane and Emily joined Abdul, Bikram and Chetan for trading in the shares of XYZ Ltd. Dane followed a strategy of buying equal numbers of shares at 10 am, 11 am and 12 noon, and selling the same numbers at 1 pm,  2 pm and 3 pm. Emily, on the other hand, followed the strategy of buying shares using all her money at 10 am and selling all of them at 12 noon and again buying the shares for all the money at 1 pm and again selling all of them at the close of the day at 3 pm. At the close of the day the following was observed: (i) Abdul lost money in the transactions. (ii) Both Dane and Emily made profits. (iii) There was an increase in share price during the closing hour compared to the price at 2 pm. (iv) Share price at 12 noon was lower than the opening price. Share price was at its highest at A 10 amB 11 amC 12 noonD 1 pm
