  4.     (d) 1996-97


Solution

The correct option is A

(a) 1992-93                         


Answer 31. (a)
Explanation:
There is an increase in foreign exchange reserves during the years 1992 - 1993, 1994 - 1995, 1996 - 1997, 1997 - 1998 as compared to previous year (as shown by bar-graph).
The percentage increase in reserves during these years compared to previous year are:

For 1992 - 1993 =   [(3720 - 2640)/2640 * 100]% = 40.91%.
                                
For 1994 - 1995 =   [(3360 - 2520)/2520 * 100]% = 33.33%.
                    
For 1996 - 1997 =   [(4320 - 3120)/3120 * 100]% = 38.46%.
                    
For 1997 - 1998 =  [(5040 - 4320)/4320 * 100]% = 16.67%.
                    
Clearly, the percentage increase over previous year is highest for 1992 - 1993.
