| If the purchase in 2015 was Rs. 350 crores and the total sales in the years 2015 and 2016 together was Rs. 700 crores, then the import in 2016 was?

A. Rs. 680 crores

B. Rs. 500 crores

C. Rs. 750 crores

D. Rs. 720 crores

### Right Answer is: D

#### SOLUTION

⇒ The ratio of purchase to sales in 2015 and 2016 are 1.4 & 1.6 respectively.

⇒ Let sales in 2015 = Rs. X crores

⇒ sales in the year 2016 = Rs. (700 – x) crores

⇒ 1.4 = 350/x, x = 250 = sales in 2015

⇒ Sales in 2016 = (700 – 250) = 450 crores

⇒ let purchase in 2016 = y crores

⇒ 1.6 = y/450, y = 720 crores

∴ Answer is Rs. 720 crores
