Hence we find that the highest percentage of apples supplied by any state is 99% (J&K in February).

147. If we were to add the quantity of apples supplied by various states, it can be found that HP supplied 231028 tons., UP supplied 258 tons. and J & K supplied 262735 tons. Thus it was J & K that supplied maximum number of apples.

148. If J&K supplied the highest quantity of apples, it is obvious that it would supply the highest percentage of total apples supplied as well.

149. It is given that in case demand is more than the supply, additional demand is met by taking the stock from the cold storage. So it can be figured out that in all those months when supply was greater than the demand, no stock would have been used from the cold storage. Looking at the table we can find that during the period May to September, no stock was taken from the cold storage and hence supply should have been greater than the demand.

150. From Q.147 it can be seen that the total quantity of apples supplied to Delhi during the year was (231028+258+262735) = 494021 tons. = 494021000 kgs. If 1 tree yields 40 kg. of apple, then number of trees required to yield 494021000 kgs. = 494021000/40 = 12350525 tress = 12.5 million trees (approx.)

151. If there are 250 trees per hectare, then area required to have 12350525 = 12350525/250 = 49402 = 49453 (approx.)
