Hello friends,

Here, we present to you a long Table Analysis dataset. The peculiarity of this dataset is that few cells of its column have 2 parameters. Pl. try this.

'The Table below presents status of 19 unfinished Dam Projects. These Dam projects were started during 4 different historical time periods-- Post Independence (1947 - 1975); Post Emergency (1975 - 1991); Post Liberalization (1991 - 2001); & Post Globalization (2001 - till date).'

For each of the following statements, select 'Yes' if statement is true based solely on the information provided in the table; otherwise select 'No'.

Q1: - The number of projects started during Post Globalization period is greater than those started during any other period.

Q2: - The dam projects whose current status is 'Work In Process' were not finished because of 'Rehabilitation' cause of escalation only.

Q3:- Average revised project cost of the projects whose current status is 'Land Acquired' is more than the average revised project cost of the projects whose current status is 'Work Stalled'.

Hi folks,

Do you find it tough? It is not so. Question 3 does demand a different approach. It is worth attempting.
