### Answers and Explanations

**Answer 1: a**The sector which has the maximum percentage share in the pie chart has maximum amount spent. According to the graph, the maximum amount was spent on food which was 23% of the total expenditure. Hence, the correct answer is option a.

**Answer 2: c** The total saving of the family is 15% of total expenditure which same as the expenditure on housing. Hence, the correct answer is option c.

**Answer 3: a** We can check from the pie chart that the sum of the percentages of the sectors of transport and other items together is 25% of the total expenditure. Hence, 25% of the total income was spent on transport and other items together.
Hence, the correct answer is option a.

**Answer 4: b** The education expense constitutes 12% of the total expenditure.

Hence, expenditure on education = (12/100)x 100000= Rs. 12000

Hence, the correct answer is option b.

**Answer 5: d** The difference in the percentage values of the housing and transport costs is 15% – 5% = 10%

Hence, the required difference = (10/100)x 100000= Rs. 10000

Hence, the correct answer is option d.
