Solutions:
Maths Questions for DSSSB Exam : 1st May 2018 (Solutions)_50.1
S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. Here, selling price = Rs. 1850 
Profit percentage = 25% 
∴ Cost price =(Selling price × 100)/(100 + profit%) 
=(1850 × 100)/(100 + 25)=(1850 × 100)/125 
= Rs. 1480 
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol. Here, cost price = Rs. 46000 
Loss percentage = 12% 
∴ Selling price =46000((100-12)/100) 
=(46000 × 88)/100 
= 460 × 88 = Rs. 40480 
Again, cost price = Rs. 40480 
Gain percentage = 12%
∴ Selling price =40480((100 + 12)/100) 
=40480×112/100 = Rs. 45337.60 
Hence, overall loss = 46000 – 45337.60
= Rs. 662.40 
S4. Ans.(d)
Sol. Here, cost price = Rs. 9600 
Loss percentage = 5%
∴ Selling price = 9600×((100 – 5))/100 
=9600×95/100 = Rs. 9120 
Again, cost price = 9120 
Gain percentage = 5%
∴ Selling price =9120  ((100 + 5))/100 
=(9120 × 105)/100 
= Rs. 9576
Hence, overall loss = 9600 – 9576 
= Rs. 24 
S5. Ans.(d)
Sol. Here, selling price = Rs. 308 
Profit percentage = 12%
∴ Cost price =(308 × 100)/(100 + 12) 
=(308 × 100)/112   
= Rs. 275 
Again, selling price = Rs. 308 
Loss percentage = 12%
∴ Cost price =(308 × 100)/88 
= Rs. 350 
In whole transaction, 
Total SP = 308 × 2 = Rs. 616 
Total CP = 275 + 350 
= Rs. 625 
∴ Loss = 625 – 616 
= Rs. 9 
Loss percentage =9/625×100 
=900/625=36/25 
=1 11/25% loss 
S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let the total number of workers be x. Then,
(7 × 10000) + (x – 7) 7800 = 8500x
⇒ 70000 + 7800x – 54600 = 8500x
⇒ 700x = 15400
⇒ x = 22
∴ Total number of workers in the workshop = 22

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Sum of the ages of 3 boys = (16 × 3) = 48 years
Ratio of their ages = 4 : 5 : 7
Age of the youngest = (48×4/16) = 12 years

S8. Ans.(c)
Sol. Quantity of evaporated water = Original quantity of solution ((% Difference of water)/(Final % of water))
= 16 ((40-30)/40)=4l

S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let the 3rd number be 100.
Then, 1st number = 70, 2nd number = 63
2nd number is less than 1st by = (7/70×100)%
= 10%

S10. Ans.(b)
Sol. Cost price for 5 Lemon is Rs. 4
So SP for 5 Lemon = 4 × ((100 + 75))/100 = Rs. 7
So, SP for 1 Lemon = 7/5 = Rs. 1.4
