Text Solution

Reasoning:

Horizontal axis represents ‘Years’ and vertical represents ‘Sales’ in Rs crore.

We can find the value of ‘Sales’ on vertical axis according to the given value of ‘Years’ on the horizontal axis value or vice versa.

Steps:

(a)

(i) In \(2002,\) the sales were \(\rm{Rs}\; 4\) crores.

(ii) In \(2006,\) the sales were \(\rm{Rs}\; 8\) crores.

(b)

(i) In \(2003,\) the sales were \(\rm{Rs}\; 7\) crores.

(ii) In \(2005,\) the sales were \(\rm{Rs}\; 10\) crores.

(c)

(i) In \(2002,\) the sales were \(\rm{Rs}\; 4\) crores and in \(2006,\) the sales were \(\rm{Rs}\; 8\) crores.

Difference between the sales in \(2002\) and \(2006\)

\(= \rm{Rs} \;(8 − 4)\) crores \(=\) \(\rm{Rs}\; 4\) crores

(d) Difference between the sales of the year \(2006\) and \(2005\)

\(= \rm{Rs}\; (10 − 8)\) crores \(=\rm{ Rs}\; 2\) crores

Difference between the sales of the year \(2005\) and \(2004\)

\(= \rm{Rs}\; (10 − 6)\) crores \(=\rm{Rs}\; 4\) crores

Difference between the sales of the year \(2004\) and \(2003\)

\(=\rm{Rs}\; (7 − 6)\) crore \(= \rm{Rs}\; 1\) crore

Difference between the sales of the year \(2003\) and \(2002\)

\(= \rm{Rs} \;(7 − 4)\) crores \(=\rm{Rs}\; 3\) crores

Hence, the difference was the maximum in the year \(2005\) as compared to its previous year \(2004.\)
