Solutions

S1. Ans.(d)
Sol. From 121 to 999, No of 3-digits terms = 999 – 121 + 1 = 879
∴Count of key pressed = 3 × 879 = 2637
From 1000 to 1346, No of 4-digits terms = 1346 – 1000 + 1 = 347
∴ Count of key pressed = 4 × 347 = 1388
Total count of key pressed = 2637 + 1388 = 4025

S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. ATQ, efficiency Ratio of 3 persons
((sandy+Mandy))/Andy =8/5
∴ Andy’s share = 5/((8+5))×2600 = Rs. 1000

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Volume of solid cone
= 1/3×22/7×(8)^2×24=1609.14 cm^3
Volume of solid cylinder
= 22/7× (6)^2×6=678.86 cm^3
Wastage % = (1609.14 –678.86)/1609.14×100 = 57.8%

S4. Ans.(b)
Sol. Net Discount = D_1 +D_2 –(D_1 ×D_2)/100
= 20 + 30 – (20 × 30)/100 = 44%

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. SP of mixture = Rs. 42 per kg
Profit = 20%
∴ CP of mixture = 42 × 100/120=Rs.35 per kg
By mixture allegation method,
Required ratio = 10:5 = 2:1

S6. Ans.(d)
Sol. ATQ,
(n_1+n_2+⋯+ n_11)/11=7 {Given}
Multiply both side by 2.
(2n_1+2n_2+⋯+2n_11)/11=14
∴ The new average = 14

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the CP of article be 100
ATQ,
60 Units = Rs. 90
1 unit = Rs. 1.5
∴ The CP = 1.5 × 100 = Rs. 150

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let the income of Amit be 100.
∴ Income of Amit = 12800/64 ×100 = Rs. 20,000

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the length of slower train be ‘L’ m.
ATQ, L = (43 + 51) × 5/18×9
L = 235 metres

S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the sum be ‘P’ and simple interest of 1 year be SI.
ATQ, P + 3.5 SI = 969 … (i)
and P + 2 SI = 918 … (ii)
Subtract (ii) from (i)
1.5 SI = 51
SI = Rs. 34
Put the value of SI in any of eqn.
P + 2 × 34 = 918
P = 918 – 68 ⇒ P = Rs. 850
Let the rate of Interest be R%
∴ 34 = (850 × R × 1)/100 ⇒ R = 4%
