A. Rs. 370 crores

B. Rs. 320 crores

C. Rs. 280 crores

D. Rs. 275 crores

E. Rs. 264 crores

Answer: Option B

Solution(By Examveda Team)

From graph, we find that the ratio of value of import to the value of export in 2006 is 0.85
Let the value of export in 2006 be Rs. $$x$$ crores.
$$\eqalign{ & \frac{272}{x} = 0.85 \cr & \Rightarrow x = \frac{272}{0.85} \cr & \Rightarrow x = \frac{272\times100}{85} \cr & \Rightarrow x = 320 \cr} $$
Hence, the value of exports in 2006 was Rs. 320 crores
