1. Option (d) D is correct Answer

Explanation:-

If company A is most desires to meet the demand by purchasing surplus production of a company, the most suitable company is D.

Hence, the answer is (d) D.

2.  Option (a) 3:2 is correct Answer

Explanation:-
The ratio of the number of  companies having more demand than production to those having more production than demand is 3: 2.

Hence, the answer is (a) 3: 2.

3.  Option (d)  280 is correct Answer

Explanation:-
The total demand of five companies = 3000 + 600 + 1200 + 2500 + 3300
= 10600
Then, the average demand of five companies = 10600/5
= 2120

The total production of five companies = 1500 + 1800 + 1000 + 2700 + 2200
= 9200
Then, the average production of five companies = 1840

Now, the difference between average demand and average production of five companies = 2120 – 1840
= 280

Hence, the answer is (d) 280.

4.  Option (b) 1.8 is correct Answer

Explanation:-
If the production of  company D is times of the production of company A.
Then, 1500 h = 2700
h = 2700/1500
h = 1.8

Hence, the answer is (b) 1.8.

5.  Option (c) 24 is correct Answer

Explanation:-
If X% demand of for company C equal demand company B.
Then,  2500 x X/100 = 600
25 X = 600
X = 600/25
X  = 24 %

Hence, the answer is (c) 24.
