Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Remainder = 25

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. A can do 75% in 18 days
∴ A can do 100% in 18×(100%)/(75%)=24 days
⇒ B can do 25% in 12 days
∴ B can do 100% in 12×100/25 = 48 days
∴48×3/4×1/((2+1))=12 days

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Area of 4 walls of a cuboid = 2h(ℓ + b)
∴ 2h(ℓ + b) = 57
⇒ 2 × 3 × (5.5 + b) = 57 ⇒ b = 4 m

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol.
70 units → 1050
100 units→1050/70×100=1500
85 units→1500/100×85 = Rs 1275

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let a = 336, b= 288, c = 161
And d be its fourth proportional
∴a/b=c/d ⇒ 336/288=161/d
⇒d=(161×288)/336=138

S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. The numbers are 16, 24, ………..88
Sum of the numbers =10/2×(16+88) = 520
∴ Average of the numbers =520/10=52

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let cost of 1 kg rice be Rs 1
And amount of rice sold at 8% profit be x
∴ ATQ,
x×108/100+(630-x)×115/100=630×112/100
⇒ x = 270

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. ATQ,
50% × a = b
⇒1/2×a=b ⇒ a/b=2/1
∴ 1% × 40 =1/100×40=2/5
this equals 0.2a = 2/10×2=2/5

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Due to stoppages, the train covers (120 – 50) = 70 km less (in 1 hour)
∴ time taken =(70/120×60) min= 35 min

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. .
Rate=180/2000×100=9%
