 5.  
The graph shows the number of vehicle registrations from the year 1995 to 2000. Calculate rise in percentage of the registrations from 1995 to 2000.


a.
4.92 %
b.
2.33 %
c.
2.91 %
d.
3.54%


Solution:

Number of vehicles registered in the year 2000 = 220 million

Number of vehicles registered in the year 1995 = 215 million

The percentage increase = (Increase in the number of vehicles/ original number of vehicles) x 100

So, percentage rise in vehicle registrations from 1995 to 2000 = (220–215) / 215x 100 = (5 / 215) x 100 = 2.33%


Correct answer : (2)
