Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. Average speed = (Total distance covered)/(Total time taken)
=(240+260) / (5+5)
=500/10
=50 km/hr
S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Sum of five numbers = 496 × 5 = 2480
Sum of two given numbers = 117 + 140 = 257
Sum of remaining three numbers = 2480 – 257 = 2223
∴ Average of these three numbers
=2223/3=741

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Ratio of failed students is reversed to the passed students
Ratio of failed students = 2: 1
∴ failed girls = 1x
Now 1x = 100
∴ total failed student 3x  = 3 × 100 = 300

∴ total students = 300 + 900 = 1200
S9. Ans.(c)
Sol. Passed students from D = 450
Ratio of failed boys to girls = 5: 4
Difference = 5x – 4x = x
x = 25 Given
total failed students = 9x
= 9 × 25 = 225
Required ratio
=450/225 = 18/9 = 2/1
S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Avg. of passed students
=(900+600+1500+450)/4
= 862.5
