Solutions:
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Let equivalent discount be x%
∴(100-x)/100=75/100×70/100×60/100
⇒ 100 – x = 31.5
⇒ x = 68.5%
S2. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Let distance = d km
∴d/20=d/22+3/5
⇒ d = 132 km
S3. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Correct average
=(60×30-(54+64)+45+46)/60
= 29.55
S4. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let speed of man = x kmph
∴ (x + 2.5) = 3 (x -2.5)
⇒ 2x = 10
⇒ x = 5 kmph
∴ Required distance = (5 – 2.5)×4
= 10 km
S6. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Let rate of interest = r% per annum
∴ 15,625 = 12,500 [(1+r/100)^2-1]
⇒(1+r/100)^2=2.25
⇒1+r/100=15/10
⇒ r = 50%
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Total ways = 5! × 4! × 2!
= 5,760
S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Age of 5th friend = 5 × 24 – 4 × 24
= 24 years
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Required no. of men
=(9×8×15)/(6×15)
= 12
S10. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let breadth of rectangle = b cm
