In the graph shown above, which sector represents the $9.6 million budgeted by Company X for radio marketing?Notice that we are told that the figure is drawn to scale, thus: A is less than 25%; B is greater than 25%; C = D = 25/2=12%; E = 25%. (1) Sector E represents 25% of the total annual marketing budget for company X. We knew this from the stem. Not sufficient. (2) The total annual marketing budget for company X was $48 million. 9.6 is 20% of 48, thus A must be it. Sufficient. Answer: B.

HI Bunuel, I have 2 doubts on this question ,, 1)it is said in the figure that the figure is not drawn to scale, then how can it be concluded that the E=25 % ,, what if it is some more or less than that 2) the question asks which sector has $9.6 million budgeted. Does it ask for 9.6 exactly or at least the specified amount. If it asks at least then even B could be the answer. I really went with E on this. 1. We are told that the figure IS drawn to scale. 2. Yes, we are asked to find which sector represents exactly $9.6 million. Only A can be it.

I have notices that the graph is drawn to scale, but still didnt get from where we got that 25% p.s. sorry for the stupid question, but I really dont know why 25% . do we have 25% ,since we just divide 100 to 4 major slices (a, b, c, and d+e) ? E is 25% because it's 1/4th of the circle.

I too think this is not a good question. I mean come on, E could be anywhere between 24% to 26%. If it was written that it is not drawn to scale, we would have definitely given the 24% to 26% range some serious thinking...?

It is given that graph is drawn to scale and E represents 1/4 of the graph,
C and D combined represents 1/4 of the data and since each one is equally spaced so C=D=1/8.
B is bit larger than E and A is smaller than E .
1. Statement 1: No information given about the budget. Won't be able to deduce which one represents $9.6 million.
2. Total budget = 48
so 9.6/48=1/5; from the given fact A = 9.6
So option B

BunuelaceGMAT21The graph provides information about the MARKETING BUDGET The question stem asks about RADIO MARKETING BUDGET Radio marketing CAN BE A SUBGROUP of total marketing. None of the choices provides information about RADIO MARKETING. Why isn't the answer E

None of the choices provides information about RADIO MARKETING. Why isn't the answer E In the graph shown above, which sector represents the $9.6 million budgeted by Company X for radio marketing?Radio marketing IS a part of the Annual Marketing Budget. How else? We know that radio marketing = $9.6 million From (2) we know that 9.6 = 20% of 48 and again from the stem, we know that sector A = ~20%. Thus, sector A (20% of the circle) represents the $9.6 million (20% of 48 million) for radio marketing.

what i did for statement two was 9.6/48*360 = 72 degrees since the pie chart was drawn to scale, b & e > 90 degrees left with A, C, D. if either c or D = 72 then c + d = 144 (which doesnt make sense as c + d + a would be 288 and resulting in b & e each lesser than A.)
Hence A is the portion that represents 9.6$m
