1. Option (b) 20% is correct answer

Explanation:-
The total Expenditure on electricity  = 72 degree
Then, the percentage of total expenditure on electricity = 72 x 100/360
= 2 x 10
= 20%

Hence, the answer is (b) 20%.

2.  Option (c) 25% is correct answer

Explanation:-
The total expenditure on raw materials = 90 degree
Then, the percentage of total expenditure on raw materials = 90 x 100/360
= 100/4
= 25%

Hence, the answer is (c) 25%.

3.  Option (a) Rs. 18000 is correct answer

Explanation:-
The total spent on overhead expenses = 108 degree
The total spent of a company = Rs. 60, 000

Then, the total spent on overhead expenses = 60, 000 x 108/360
= 6, 000 x 3
= Rs. 18, 000

Hence, the answer is (a) Rs. 18, 000.

4.  Option (d) Rs.15000 is correct answer

Explanation:-

The total expenditure on conveyance = 90 degree
Then, the total expenditure on conveyance = 60, 000 x 90/360
= 60, 000/4
= 15, 000

Hence, the answer is (d) Rs. 15, 000.
