**Direction (16-20) :**

**16). Answer: c)**

**Explanation:**

The total rice production in all the given states together

= > 35 + 28 + 32 + 26 + 32 = 153 thousand tonnes

The total Barley production in all the given states together

= > 12 + 15 + 18 + 10 + 14 = 69 thousand tonnes

Required difference = 153 – 69 = 84 thousand tonnes

**17). Answer: a)**

**Explanation:**

The average production of Maize in all the given states together

= > (18 + 15 + 27 + 24 + 26)/5

= > 110/5 = 22 thousand tonnes

**18). Answer: d)**

**Explanation:**

The total production of all the given food grains from AP

= > 28 + 15 + 15 + 17 = 75 thousand tonnes

The total production of all the given food grains from West Bengal

= > 26 + 24 + 10 + 20 = 80 thousand tonnes

Required ratio = 75: 80 = 15: 16

**19). Answer: b)**

**Explanation:**

Total production of all the given food grains from MP

= > 35 + 18 + 12 + 16 = 81 thousand tonnes

Total production of all the given food grains from Haryana

= > 32 + 27 + 18 + 19 = 96 thousand tonnes

Required % = (81/96)*100 = 85 %

**20). Answer: c)**

**Explanation:**

The total rice production in Odisha = 32 thousand tonnes

The total maize production in West Bengal = 24 thousand tonnes

Required % = [(32 – 24)/24]*100 = 33.33 = 33 % more
