The total revenue of a company during 2014−2018 is shown in the bar graph. If the total expenditure of the company in each year is 500 million rupees, then the aggregate profit or loss (in percentage) on the total expenditure of the company during 2014−2018 is _________ .


(A) 16.67% profit
(B) 16.67% loss
(C) 20% profit
(D) 20% loss


Answer: (C)

Explanation: Bar-graph: 2014-2018,

Total expenditure,

= 500 million/year 
= 500 × 5 
= 2500 million 

Now, Revenue total (from the graph),

= 400 + 500 + 600 + 700 + 800
= 3000 million 

Therefore, Profit,

= 3000 - 2500 = 500 

Profit (in percentage),

= (500/2500)*100 %
= 20 % profit 

Option (C) is correct.
