The bar chart below shows the revenue received in million US Dollars (USD), from subscribers to a particular Internet service. The data covers the period 2008 to 2012 for the United States (US) and Europe. The bar chart also shows the estimated revenues from subscription to this service for the period 2013 to 2015.

 

1. The difference between the estimated subscription in Europe in 2013 and what it would have been if it were computed using the percentage growth rate of 2012 (over 2011), is closest to:

  1. 10
  2. 20
  3. 50
  4. 80

2. In 2008, sixty percent of subscribers in Europe were men. Given that women subscribers increase at the rate of 10 percent annum and men at the rate of 5 percent per annum, what is the approximate percentage growth of subscribers between 2008 and 2015 in Europe? The subscription prices are volatile and may change each year.

  1. 50
  2. 62
  3. 78
  4. 84

3. Consider the annual percent change in the gap between subscription revenues in the US and Europe. What is the year in which the absolute value of this change is the highest?

  1. 13-14
  2. 11-12
  3. 10-11
  4. 14-15

4. While the subscription in Europe has been growing steadily towards that of the US, the growth rate in Europe seems to be declining. Which of the following is closest to the percent change in growth rate of 2012 (over 2011) relative to the growth rate of 2010 (over 2009)?

  1. 60
