# Five vendors are being considered for a service | CAT DILR questions – Data Interpretation

## CAT 2019 - Slot 1 - Set 6 - Five vendors are being considered for a service

Five vendors are being considered for a service. The evaluation committee evaluated each vendor on six aspects – Cost, Customer Service, Features, Quality, Reach, and Reliability. Each of these evaluations are on a scale of 0 (worst) to 100 (perfect). The evaluation scores on these aspects are shown in the radar chart. For example, Vendor 1 obtains a score of 52 on Reliability, Vendor 2 obtains a score of 45 on Features and Vendor 3 obtains a score of 90 on Cost.

Q. 1: On which aspect is the median score of the five vendors the least?
1. Reliability
2. Quality
3. Customer Service
4. Cost

The scores of venders given in graph can be tabulated as below:

Median of reliability = 52; median of quality = 60; median of customer s = 50 median of cost = 80 Clearly the median of customer s is minimum.

##### Q. 2: A vendor’s final score is the average of their scores on all six aspects. Which vendor has the highest final score?1. Vendor 32. Vendor 23. Vendor 44. Vendor 1

The vender which has highest total will have highest average. vendor 3 has highest total thus highest average.

Q. 3: List of all the vendors who are among the top two scorers on the maximum number of aspects is:
1. Vendor 1 and Vendor 2
2. Vendor 1 and Vendor 5
3. Vendor 2 and Vendor 5
4. Vendor 2, Vendor 3 and Vendor 4

Vendor 1 and 5 have 3 top two scores each.

Q. 4: List of all the vendors who are among the top three vendors on all six aspects is:
1. Vendor 1 and Vendor 3
2. Vendor 3
3. Vendor 1
4. None of the Vendors

Clearly vendor 3
