DIRECTIONS for questions 1 to 5: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given in the following Table Number of Factories by Size of Employment1. During 1990-2001, rate of increase in number of factories was highest for the

following category

(A) Employment size 0-4

(B) Employment size 100-199

(C) Employment size 500-999

(D) Employment size 200-4992. During 1990-2001, rate of increase in number of factories was least for the

following category

(A) Employment size 5-9

(B) Employment size 50-99

(C) Employment size 20-49

(D) Employment size 1000 and above3. If we plot year on horizontal axis and number of factories on vertical axis, we get

inverted V shape for the following

for number of factories against year.

for number of factories against year.

(D) None above5. If we plot size employment on horizontal axis and number of factories on vertical

axis, we get the following pattern for 1990-01, 1995-96 and 2000-01
