#### Answer:

Circular diagram or a Pie diagram depicts** **a circle that is divided into various segments showing the values of different items (components) in percentage terms

For presenting the given percentage values in a pie diagram, the percentage values must be converted into the respective degree values, for which the following formula is used.

$\mathrm{Degree}\mathrm{Value}=\frac{\mathrm{Component}\mathrm{Value}}{100}\times 360$

Item |
Percentage Share |
Degree Share |

Food | 65 | $\mathrm{Degree}\mathrm{share}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{Food}=\frac{65}{100}\times 360=234\xb0$ |

Clothing | 15 | $\mathrm{Degree}\mathrm{share}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{Clothing}=\frac{15}{100}\times 360=54\xb0$ |

Housing | 12 | $\mathrm{Degree}\mathrm{share}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{Housing}=\frac{12}{100}\times 360=43.2\xb0$ |

Fuel & Light | 5 | $\mathrm{Degree}\mathrm{share}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{Fuel}\mathrm{and}\mathrm{Light}=\frac{5}{100}\times 360=18\xb0$ |

Primary Secondary Tertiary |
17 57 26 |
16.7 26 57.3 |

Total | 100 | 100 |

#### Answer:

The percentage values are converted into degree values using the following formula.

$\mathrm{Degree}\mathrm{share}=\frac{\mathrm{Percentage}\mathrm{share}}{100}\times 360\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=\mathrm{Percentage}\mathrm{share}\times 3.6$

Year 2012 - 2013 |
Year 2013 - 2014 |
||||

Sector |
Percentage contribution |
Degree Share |
Sector |
Percentage contribution |
Degree Share |

Primary |
17 | $17\times 3.6=61.2\xb0$ | Primary |
16.7 | $16.7\times 3.6=60.12\xb0$ |

Secondary |
57 | $57\times 3.6=205.2\xb0$ | Secondary |
26 | $26\times 3.6=93.6\xb0$ |

Tertiary |
26 | $26\times 3.6=93.6\xb0$ | Tertiary |
57.3 | $57.3\times 3.6=206.28\xb0$ |

Analysing the above diagram, we can conclude that in 2012-13 it is the secondary sector that contributed the most to GDP, on the other hand, in 2013-14, it is tertiary sector that contributed the most to GDP.
