QUESTION: 1

**Group Question**

Answer the following question based on the information given below.

Analyze the charts given below that show the energy consumption and energy production of XYZ country from various sources. The difference in production and consumption of energy from any source is bridged through external trade (i.e. export or import) of energy from the same source. All the values are given in Terawatt-hours (Twh).

**Q. Which year registered the highest external trade in the energy sector? **

Solution:

External trade = | Imports _{coal} | + | Imports _{crude oil} I + I Imports _{Natural gas} I + I Imports _{Nuclear} I + I Imports _{others} I

Imports = Consumption - Production

In the equation above, exports have also been considered as imports i.e. a negative value of imports would actually mean an export.

From the table, the external trade is highest in the year 2013.

QUESTION: 2

Analyze the charts given below that show the energy consumption and energy production of XYZ country from various sources. The difference in production and consumption of energy from any source is bridged through external trade (i.e. export or import) of energy from the same source. All the values are given in Terawatt-hours (Twh).

**Q. In which year are the net imports of all the categories taken together the lowest? **

Solution:

Consider the solution to the first question.

Among the given options, net imports are lowest in 2009.

Hence, option 1.

QUESTION: 3

Analyze the charts given below that show the energy consumption and energy production of XYZ country from various sources. The difference in production and consumption of energy from any source is bridged through external trade (i.e. export or import) of energy from the same source. All the values are given in Terawatt-hours (Twh).

**Q. Which of the following statement(s) is/are true?
I. In each year, net exports are always less than the external trade.
II. Coal is always exported.
III. Net import of energy from at least one source is nil from 2009-2014.**

Solution:

Net exports = - net imports

From the table, it is always less than the external trade.

Thus, statement I is true.

Import of coal in 2014 is 150TWh.

Thus, statement II is false.

Net import of nuclear energy = -300 + 0 + 200 + 100 -150 + 150 = 0

Thus, statement III is true.

QUESTION: 4

Group Question

Answer the following question based on the information given below.

Eight friends Raju, Ravi, Ramesh, Rahul, Arjun, Arvind, Anish and Atul are skilled at making Handicraft items. In order to make money using their skills, they decide to make a certain number of handicraft items and sell them at a Handicraft Expo.

III. The team of Raju and Arjun had the lowest total selling price of the items they had produced.**

Solution:

Statement III can be directly verified from the solutions to one of the earlier questions.

The team of Ramesh-Atul has the lowest selling price.

Hence, statement III is false.

Hence, options 2 and 4 can be eliminated.

Since II is present in both the remaining options, you can directly assume it to be true.

Hence, just verify I.

The total profit earned by Atul = (50/2) * 30 + (100/2) x 30 + (25/2 x 20) + (175/2 x 40) = Rs. 6,000

Thus, statement I is true.

**Q. For which type of handicraft was the total number of items 1Marks produced the highest?**

Solution:

The total number of items for each type of handicraft is:

Baskets = 125 + 200 + 50 + 50 = 425

Shoes = 75 + 100 + 75 + 100 + 250 = 600

Pots = 25 + 175 + 50 + 100 = 350
