## Tabular Data

It's the simplest form of data presentation where data are given in a table with proper heading and denominations. There is really no limit to what the tables can contain. You should not expect to get any simple table in CAT but in other exams like IRMA, SNAP and IIFT you might get a set with tabular data.
* Example1:* Lets consider one article published on this site regarding the number of questions asked from different mathematics chapters in last few years.

*Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below: The Deanâ€™s office recently scanned student results into the central computer system. When their character reading software cannot read something, it leaves the space blank. The scanner output read as follows:*

**Example 3**In the grading system, A, B, C, D, and F grades fetch 6, 4, 3, 2, and 0 grade points respectively. The Grade Point Average (GPA) is the arithmetic mean of the grade points obtained in the five subjects. For example Nishaâ€™s GPA is (6 + 2 + 4 + 6 + 0) / 5 = 3.6. Some additional facts are also known about the studentsâ€™ grades. These are (a) Vipul obtained the same grade in Marketing as Aparna obtained in Finance and Strategy. (b) Fazal obtained the same grade in Strategy as Utkarsh did in Marketing. (c) Tara received the same grade in exactly three courses. Q1. What grade did Preeti obtain in Statistics? 1. A 2. B 3. C 4. D

**ANS:**GPA of Preeti = 3.2 => (F+D+x+D+y)/5 = 3.2 => x + y = 12 So only combination possible is A, A. So Preeti obtained A grade in statistics. Q2. In operations, Tara could have received the same grade as 1. Ismet 2. Hari 3. Jagdeep 4. Manab

**ANS:**(4) Tara received same grade in 3 courses. We already know that Tara has got B grade in one of the subject and GPA is 2.4. So in 3 courses in which he scored same grade is B. So Tara has received the same grade as Manab. Q3. In Strategy, Gowriâ€™s grade point was higher than that obtained by 1. Fazal 2. Hari 3. Nisha 4. Rahul

**ANS:**GPA of Gowri is 3.8 =>3 + 3 + 6 + x + 4 = 3.8 Ã— 5 =>16 + x = 18 =>x = 2 So in strategy, Gowri's grade is C. Rahul's grade in strategy = (4.2 Ã— 5) â€“ 15 = 6, i.e., A. Fazal's grade in strategy = (2.4 Ã— 5) â€“ 8 = 4, i.e., B. Hence, Gowri's grade will be higher than that of Hari. Q4. What grade did Utkarsh obtain in Finance? 1. B 2. C 3. D 4. F

**ANS:**Fazal GPA = 2.4 => D + F + B + P + D = 2.4 Ã— 5 2 + 0 + 4 + P + 2 = 12 P = 4 So his grade in strategy is B. So Grade of Utkarsh in marketing is also B. So for Utkarsh, x + B + F + C + A = 3 Ã— 5 x + 4 + 0 + 3 + 6 = 15 x = 2 So grade of Utkarsh in finance = D.

**Example 4:**Answer the questions based on the following information.

**Unclaimed redemption and dividend amounts for TMF India Ltd.**

Q1. What is the average dividend amount per unclaimed warrants across all schemes for TMF India Ltd.? a. Rs. 1,964 b. Rs. 2,734 c. Rs. 3,822 d. None of these

**ANS:**Average dividend amount 68.59/2509 i.e Rs. 2734 Q2. What is the approximate ratio of the average redemption amount per warrant in TIGF scheme to that in FIBF scheme? a. 10:9 b. 9:10 c. 11:13 d. 9 : 13

**ANS:**In TIGF scheme, average redemption amount per warrant (Rs.83,000/7) = Rs. 11857.14 In FIBF scheme, average (Rs.13,000)/1 =13,000 Ratio = 11857.14 : 13000 = 91 : 100 Â» 9 : 10 Q3. Which of the following statement(s) is(are) not true? I. The total amount of unclaimed warrants for TIGF and TIIF schemes is Rs. 48.57 lakh. II. TIIF scheme accounts for more than 60% of the total number of unclaimed warrants. a. Only (I) b. Only (II) c. Both (I) and (II) d. Both are true

**ANS:**(I) TIGF and TIIF = Rs. (3.26 + 42.18 + 0.83 + 2.30) lakh = Rs. 48.57 lakh (II) Total number of warrants in TIIF scheme = 1601 + 48 = 1649 out of total 2578 claims. Hence, it is more than 60%. Q4. What is the percentage of unclaimed dividend amount in TMIP scheme? a. 7.8% b. 5.2% c. 10.5% d. Cannot be determined

**ANS:**Required percentage 68.59 /5.39 = 7.8% (approx.) Q5. A scheme is given the â€˜starâ€™ status when it has minimum number of unclaimed warrants for that scheme, among all others. Among the given schemes, which scheme is to be awarded â€˜starâ€™ status? a. FIIF b. FIBF c. TIIF d. Cannot be determined

**ANS:**The data on unclaimed dividend amounts for FIIF, FIBF and FIGF are not given.
