Yes Shibani. You are right. But i think Mukulji have given page number reference of PDF file where we enter the number.

Q1: See pg 127-128 of the book chap 4 for the first part.
For second part search net. Look for Tata, Hyundai, Tata Nano layouts. These are mostly cellular.
Q2: Discuss transportation models. Also given in the book. The session 2 PPT Slides 40-51 are more handy.
Apply Vogel's Method for IBFS. You will cost Rs. 35100/-. Then apply Stepping Stone method. There's no change. It means Rs. 35,100/- is optimal cost also.
Q3a: Discussion only. Identify some industries that pollute environment more.
Q3b: Discuss environment protection act and relevant provisions. Also discuss UN initiatives, Kyoto protocol etc. Relate environment protection to sustainability as you have seen while studying CSR.

For 3a. you need to refer online for aspects in production.

3b. refer to point 6.2.2 and elaborate the same point.

Can you help me with Q2 about transportation cost. Do we have to calcualte optimum transport cost? and also do we have to explain each iteration or step in it?
