Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Req. age of coach = 13 × 25 – 12 × 23 = 49

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Successive gain% =[30+20+(30×20)/100]=56%
So, find selling price, 156% = 31200
So, cost price =31200/156×100 = 20000

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. No. of tree = 17640
For 2 year ago 5% per annum
=17640×100/105×100/105
= 16000

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. SI for 10 year = 3130
& given that principal becomes 5 times after 5 years
P×r×t/100 =3130
Pr/100=313
ATQ,
Total SI = P×r×5/100 + 5P×r×5/100
= Pr/100(5+25) = 313×30 = 9390

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. 11/x-13+11/y-13+11/z-13=4
11 (1/x+1/y+1/z)=44
1/x+1/y+1/z=4

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. (x + y)² = xy + 1..(i)
x³ – y³ = 1..(ii)
⇒ x² + y² + 2xy = xy + 1
⇒ x² +y² + xy = 1…(iii)
⇒ (x³ – y³) = (x – y) (x² + y² + xy)
1 = (x – y).1
x – y = 1

S10. Ans.(d)
Sol.
We know that,
∠SRT = 60°
Due to equilateral triangle
∠RQS = 45°
Because due to diagonal of square
So, ∠SOR = ∠ORQ + ∠RQO
= (90 – 60) + 45
= 75°
