Tables, Charts, and Graphs-DI

Tables, Charts, and Graphs (Data Interpretation)

Graphs and charts show the relationship of numbers and quantities in visual form. By looking at a graph, you can see at a glance the relationship between two or more sets of information. If such information were presented in written form, it would be hard to read and understand.

Here are some things to remember when doing problems based on data interpretation:

1. Take your time and read carefully. Understand what you are being asked to do before you begin figuring.

2. Check the dates and types of information required. Be sure that you are looking in the proper columns, and on the proper lines, for the information you need.

3. Check the units required. Be sure that your answer is in thousands, millions, or whatever the question calls for.

4. In computing averages, be sure that you add the figures you need and no others, and that you divide by the correct number of years or other units.

5. Be careful in computing problems asking for percentages.

a. Remember that to convert a decimal into a percent you must multiply it by 100. For example, 0.04 is 4%.

b. Be sure that you can distinguish between such quantities as 1% (1 percent) and .01% (one one-hundredth of 1 percent), whether in numerals or in words.

c. Remember that if quantity X is greater than quantity Y, and the question asks what percent quantity X is of quantity Y, the answer must be greater than 100 percent.


Data refers to facts or numbers, collected for examination, consideration and useful for decision-making. It is in raw form i.e. it is in a scattered form. Information refers to data being arranged and presented in a systematic or an organize form, so that some useful inferences can be drawn from the same. By data we generally mean quantities, figures, statistics, relating to any event.


As the name implies, Data Interpretation is extraction of maximum information, as required by us from the given set of data or information. In other words the act of organizing and interpreting data to get meaningful information is known as Data Interpretation. The representation of data can be broadly classified as tables and graph.

TABLES: Any statistical data pertaining to a situation can be represented by tables. Tables are the easiest and most convenient form of data representation if the data is reasonably limited.

(1) Tables present data logically.
(2) Tables give a bird’s eye-view of the data in a concise and a compact manner thereby saving time and space.
(3) The columns and the rows that constitute any table facilitate data comparison.
(4) Tables facilitate also analysis and informed decision-making, a la any other data representation type.

Practice Questions :

DI Points to Remember

DI: Points to Remember

-> In gleaning data from a chart, graph or table, it's remarkably easy to inadvertently grab your data from the wrong graph, bar, line, etc.

This is the #1 cause of incorrect responses in CAT Data Interpretation. To avoid this blunder, point your finger to the data you want; put your finger directly against the question paper and keep it there until you're sure you're looking at the right part of the right chart or graph.

-> Check to see if the question asks for an approximation. If so, you can safely estimate numbers by rounding off.

CAUTION: When rounding off fractions, round the numerator and denominator in the same direction (either up or down); otherwise you'll distort the value of the fraction.Don't confuse percentages with raw numbers. Always ask yourself which type of number the chart or graph is providing, and which type the question is asking for.

-> It's okay to rely on visual approximations when it comes to reading bar graphs and line charts. The test-makers are not out to test your eyesight.

So if two or more answer choices come very, very close to your solution, rest assured that you needn't estimate values more precisely. Instead, go back to square 1; you've made some other mistake along the way.

-> Take 15-30 seconds right up front to assimilate and make sense of the chart, graph, or table—and be sure to read all the information around it.

(You might need to scroll vertically to view all the information.) Get a sense for what the variables are and how they relate to one another—before you tackle the questions.

Data Interpretation Tips

DI is all about how fast you can comprehend the given data and how fast and accurately you are able to add, multiply subtract, divide and calculate ratios percentages. Below are some of the tips to improve in ths section:

1. Spend about a minute to read the graph and the data properly.

2. Check the range of the options given. You may round off the data for calculations depending upon how far the choices are from each other.

3. Read the footnotes or the legends of the graphs and tables properly. Some people assume that the graphs and figures in the question paper are drawn to scale but this may not be the case.

4. Select the sets which are easy to comprehend and are easy to solve when taking Mocks or the real exam. The only way you will be able to identify easy question is by more practice. Expose yourself to as many questions on DI as possible.

5. Improve your calculation speed specially for calculation of averages and percentages.

6. Needless to say, more practise means more confidence and better result. So practise as much as possible from as many sources as possible.

7. Spend some time on analysis on what kind of mistakes you usually make and try to improve on these areas.

8. During your preparation, after you attempt questions on DI, be it right or wrong check the method used to solve the question by the writer of the book/reference material. Keep a record of all the questions you are not able to attempt correctly in the first go (Just write down Q No. Page No. and Book Name) and attempt these questions again after a few days.

For Data sufficiency questions you don’t have to actually solve the answers, you just need to find if the data given is enough to solve the questions.

Improve speed and accuracy in Data interpretation/ Data Sufficiency. As there is no substitute for hard work, its obovious that its ur hard work that can only improve your speed and skills.

Practising more questions with setting your time period for exams will surely help u in developing speed.

The more u practise the more quick u will be…

Logical Reasoning Tips

Tips for Family Chain Problems

Few things to remember:
1. For solving Logical reasoning questions always try to apprehend the point/inputs by using a graphical reprsentation.

Eg: for Family-Relationship kind of questions such as
1. X is Ys father
2. Y is brother of K
3. Ks mother in law is M
4. N is the only child of M
5. P is grand daughetr of Q, who is husband of M For such questions create a tree like representation using your own notations.

Tree structure for above case is shown below:

Try to form your own notations and practice them in mock tests.

Similarly tabular method can be used in other types of LR problems.

Data Sufficiency Answer Set-1

Data Sufficiency Answer Set-1

Back to Questions

1. From st. a x is prime factor of 42
42 can be written as 6.7, 21.2, 14.3, and 42.1
In the above list (6,7), (21,2) and (14,3) are co-primes
From st. b the range of x is given 5 £ x £ 11
Prime no. in this range is 7
Hence the value of x using both statements is 7.

2. From st. a 7 4x – 1 = 343
7 4x – 1 = 73
4x – 1 = 3
4x = 4
x = 1
From st. b 7 x+y = 49 4
7 x+y = 7 8
x + y = 8
using value of x = 1 in then y = 8 – 1 = 7
the value of y – x = 7 – 1 = 6.
Using both sts. We can get the answer.

3. St. a is not required in this case as square of any no. is positive
hence we will consider st. b given x3 < 0 which implies x < 0
here we could answer the question.
st. b is enough to answer.

Back to Questions

4. St. a AC = 40

St. b AB = BC
AC2 = AB2 + BC2
2AB2 = 402
AB2 = 800
AB = 20Ö2
Area can be calculated.
Hence both the sts are required

5. st. a
B = 1
G + 10
B = G + 10
st. b
B + 20 = 3
G 1
Using both G + 10 + 20 = 3G
2G = 30
G = 15
B = 15 + 10
Hence both the sts are required.

6. st. a area = 289p

pr2 = 289p
r = 17
st. b
r + w = 23
using both sts
17 + w = 23
w= 6

Back to Questions

7. st. a A = C + 4
st. b 3A + 5C = 92
using both sts
3( C + 4 ) + 5C = 92
8 C = 80
C = 10
A = 14
Amount of 40 Adults and 50 Children can be calculated
Hence both the sts are required.

8. The question gives x + y + z = 45
st. a no.s are positive
st. b all the no.s are consecutive odd no.s
Using both the sts. By trial and error x, y, and z are 13, 15, and 17
Hence both sts. are required

9. st. a total balls are 36
st. b ratio of red and black is given as 2 : 1
No information of green balls is given.
Hence neither of the sts. are sufficient.

10. st. a 9x – 5y = 21
st. b 3x – 5y = 7
9x – 5y = 21
only one equation is given
hence neither of the sts. are sufficient.

11. st. a the wt of the packet is given as 800gms
st. b the cost of 500gms is Rs.75 and each additional 50gms costs
Rs.5 using both the sts. cost of the packet = 75 + 6.5 = 105
hence both the sts. are sufficient

Back to Questions

12. st. a gives the ratio of a : b : c = 4 : 5 : 6
st. b gives the semi perimeter (a + b + c) /2= 22.5

We can find out the area. Hence using both the sts. we can get the area.

Note: In data sufficiency there is no need to get exact answer. We should see whether we can get the answer using data given in both the sts.

13. st. a gives the sides of the triangle 17, 15, and 12
st. b gives the perimeter of the triangle as 44
to get the ratio a check should be done, when sides in st. a are
added can be the perimeter given in st. b
17 + 15 + 12 = 44
using area of triangle = s.r
and s = ( a + b + c )/2
we can find the ratio of semi perimeter and the in radius.
Hence both the sts. are required

14. st. a Vc = Vs 2
st. b radius of sphere is 9
using both the sts.
volume of sphere can be calculated and we can calculate the volume of cylinder.
Hence both the sts. are required.

Back to Questions

15. st. a C finished second
st. b D,E, and F are disqualified
but no data about A and B is not given.
Hence neither of the sts. are sufficient.

16. st. a W consumes more carbohydrates
st. b X and Y consume more proteins
who is heaviest can’t be determined.
Hence neither of the sts. are sufficient.

17. st. a Christmas is celebrated on 25th Dec
st. b day after tomorrow is 26th Dec
using both sts. we can answer the question
Hence both the sts. are sufficient.

Back to Questions

18. st. a the height of the wall is given

st. b the angle made by the ladder and the floor is given
using both the sts. we can be

using sin q = opposite /hypotenuse will give the length of the ladder. Hence both the sts. are sufficient.

19. st. a Area of rectangle = 180
st. b change of length, breath and corresponding perimeter of rectangle is given.
Using both the sts. % change in area can be calculated.
Hence both the sts. are required.

20. st. a 3cm snowfall for first fifteen days in January

st. b 4cm snowfall for the following fifteen days in January
using both sts. the information is for 30days ,where as January has 31 days
we can’t determine the average snowfall.
Hence neither of the sts. are sufficient.

1. In 1997 production is 91% of capacity installed



Hence [3]

2. Inventory for 1994

Production in '94=330,000

Sales=297,000 therefore inventory=33,000

Inventory for 1995

Production in 1995=340,000

Sales in 1995=306,000 therefore inventory=34000

Sales for 1996=360000

Total sales=360000+34000+33000=427000 units

Sales revenue=427000*4.84
