Solutions

S1. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let fraction be x/y
(x+5)/y=6/5
5x + 25 = 6y
6y – 5x = 25 … (i)
and
x/(y+4)=1/2⇒2x=y+4 …(ii)
Solving (i) and (ii)
x = 7 and y = 10
so, fraction is 7/10

S2. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let Amit alone can complete the remaining work in x days.
So,
x/25+10/20=1 ⇒ x/25=1/2 ⇒ x = 12.5 days

S3. Ans.(c)
Sol. Pair of opposite angles are equal in a parallelogram. Rectangle and square are also parallelogram but they have 90° angle at each corner.

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Percentage discount=(2150 –1892)/2150×100=12%

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol. A=2/9 (B+C)
B+C=9/2 A
So,A+9/2 A=60500
11A = 60500 × 2 ⇒ A = Rs. 11000
And
B=3/7 (A+C) ⇒ A+C=7B/3
B+7/3 B=60500 ⇒ B = Rs. 18150
C = 60500 – 11000 – 18150 = Rs. 31350

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. Total age of 6 girls = 6x
New average age=(6x+4x+10)/10=x+1

S7. Ans.(d)
Sol. When selling price of two articles remain same and first article is sold at x% loss and second at x% profit then there is always a loss of x^2/100%
So, there would be (32)^2/100% loss
= 10.24% loss

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol. Let water added = x litre
(90/100×80+x)/(80+x)=95/100
(72+x)/(80+x)=19/20
1440 + 20x = 1520 + 19x
x = 80 litre

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let slow speed = 6x
And normal speed = 7x
Time difference will occur only in remaining 3/5 of distance
Let total distance = D
(3/5 D)/6x –(3/5 D)/7x=50/60
120/6x–120/7x=5/6
120(7 –6)/42x=5/6
