Solutions
S1. Ans.(d)
S2. Ans.(d)
S3. Ans.(a)
S4. Ans.(c)
S5. Ans.(c)

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. Efficiency of 12 Men = 1/90
Work completed in 30 days = 30/90
= 1/3
Remaining work = 1 – 1/3
= 2/3
Remaining men 12-2+8= 18
12×90=(18×Days)/ (2/3)
12×90= (18×3)/2×Days

Days = 40 days
S8. Ans.(a)
Sol. A : B = (2 : 1) × 1
A : C = (1 : 3) × 2
then,
A : B = 2 : 1
A : C = 2 : 6
A : B : C = 2 : 1 : 6
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. 8x – 5x = 48
3x = 48
x = 16
Smallest no. = 16 × 5
= 80
S10. Ans.(a)
Sol. 12x – 7x= 5x
5x = 15
x = 3
Largest side = 12 × 3
= 36
