**Case Study**

The economy of a state is composed of various sectors. To understand the basic concept, we consider two sectors coal mining (sector 1) and utilities (sector 2). The coal mining produces coal and utilities produces electricity. Assume, that these products are measured by their ₹ value.

By one unit of product we mean ₹ 1 worth of that product. To produce ₹ 1 worth of coal the coal mining sector uses ₹ 0.50 of coal and ₹ 0.10 of electricity. To produce ₹ 1 worth of electricity the utilities sector uses ₹ 0.25 of coal and ₹ 0.25 of electricity.

Based on the above information, answer the following questions
