Solutions:
S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. A + B + C = (3 × 84) kg = 252 kg
A + B + C + D = (4 × 80) kg = 320 kg
D = (320 – 252) kg = 68 kg
E = (68 + 3) kg = 71 kg
B + C + D + E = (4 × 79) kg = 316 kg
B + C + D = (316 – 71) kg = 245 kg
A = (320 – 245) kg = 75 kg
S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Clearly, 4864 is divisible by 4.
So, 9P2 must be divisible by 3. So, (9 + P + 2) must be divisible by 3.
∴ P = 1.
S3. Ans.(c)
Sol.
987 = 3 × 7 × 47
So, the required number must be divisible by each one of 3, 7, 47
553681 → (Sum of digits = 28, not divisible by 3)
555181 → (Sum of digits = 25, not divisible by 3)
555681 is divisible by each one of 3, 7, 47.
S4. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Since the numbers are co-prime, they contain only 1 as the common factor.
Also, the given two products have the middle number in common
So, middle number = H.C.F of 551 and 1073 = 29;
First number = (551/29) = 19; Third number = (1073/29) = 37
∴ Required sum = (19 + 29 + 37) = 85.
S5. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Required measurement = (H.C.F of 496, 403, 713) litres = 31 litres
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol. A = x + 13
B = x + 6
C = x
3x + 19 = 76
3x = 57
x = 19
A = 32
B = 25
C = 19
S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. 7x – 4x = 3x
3x = 30
x = 10
total = 11x
11 × 10 = 110
S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.
50p          25p          10p
5x            3x              x
5x × 2      3x × 4     x × 10
10x + 12x + 10x = 480
32x = 480
x = 15
150         180          150
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. B = 738 × 3/9
B = 246
S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. 4x/(3x + 5)=4/5
5x = 3x + 5
2x = 5
x = 5/2
alcohol = 4 × 5/2
= 10
