What is the Difference in the Consumption of Modern Bread and Bonbon Bread in Town C, If the Total Consumption of Bread in All the Five Towns Was 10000 Loaves During a Particular Week? - Mathematics



Direction:  Answer the question on the basis of the information given below.

The following information is about the consumption of bread in five towns - A, B, C, D and E. Town A consumes a quarter of the total quantity of bread sold in all the five cities. The bread consumption of Town B is one-fourth of the consumption of Town C. The bread consumption of Town D is 12% of the total whereas Town E consumes 23% of the total.

There are only two companies - Bonbon and Modern - that sell bread in these five towns. The bar graph shows the sales of Bon-bon as a percentage of the total sale of bread in each city.

What is the difference in the consumption of Modern bread and Bonbon bread in Town C, if the total consumption of bread in all the five towns was 10000 loaves during a particular week?


  • 160

  • 100

  • 180

  • 210




The correct answer is 160.
According to the information given, The total consumption of bread in all the five towns was 10000 loaves, so the total consumption of Town C will be 32% which is 3200 loaves.

Total consumption of Bonbon bread in Town C = `47.5/100 xx 3200 = 1520`

and consumption of Modern bread in Town C
= 3200 – 1520 = 1680.
Hence, required difference = 1680 – 1520 = 160 loaves.
