# Tables: Exercise-1

Directions: The figure for a country's foreign trade for the years 2010-11 to 2017-18 are given in the following table. Study the table carefully and answer the questions given below.

A country's foreign trade (Dollars in billion)

1. Which of the following is not increasing every year?

1. Imports
2. Exports
4. All of these

Solution: No Description.

1. Find in which year the ratio of the imports to exports is maximum?

1. 2010-11
2. 2012-13
3. 2016-17
4. 2017-18

Solution: We have to calculate the ratio only for four years according to options.
for 2010-11 $$= \frac{130}{60} = 2.16$$ for 2012-13 $$= \frac{160}{80} = 2$$ for 2016-17 $$= \frac{280}{180} = 1.55$$ for 2017-18 $$= \frac{320}{200} = 1.6$$ Hence, it is clear that in the year 2010-11, the ratio of imports to exports is the maximum.

1. Find in which year the increase in exports is maximum in percentage?

1. 2014-15
2. 2015-16
3. 2016-17
4. 2017-18

Solution: We have to calculate only for four years according to options.
for 2014-15 $$= \frac{200 - 180}{180} \times 100$$ $$= 11.11 \ \%$$ for 2015-16 $$= \frac{240 - 200}{200} \times 100$$ $$= 20 \ \%$$ for 2016-17 $$= \frac{280 - 240}{240} \times 100$$ $$= 16.66 \ \%$$ for 2017-18 $$= \frac{320 - 280}{280} \times 100$$ $$= 14.28 \ \%$$ Hence, it is clear that in the year 2015-16, the increase in exports is the maximum.

1. Find the total trade deficit for the last three years?

1. $255 Billion 2.$258 Billion
3. $265 Billion 4.$285 Billion

Solution: Trade deficit for the last three years, $$= 120 + 100 + 165$$ $$= 285 \ Billion$$

1. Find in which year the difference between imports and exports is maximum?

1. 2011-12
2. 2012-13
3. 2016-17
4. 2017-18
