Solutions:
S1. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Let king has total 100% gold.
So,
50% + 25% + 12.5% = 130900
87.5% = 130900
or 7/8=130900
So, 100% =130900×8/7
= 149,600 kg
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let the length of the rectangle is l and breadth is b
(l+14)(b-6)=lb
7b-3l=42 ………….(i)
(l-14)(b+10)=lb
5l-7b=70 ………………(ii)
from eqn. (i) and (ii)
l=56
b=30
Perimeter =2(l+b)
=2(56+30)
=172 m
S4. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Works completed in first 2 hour = 1/8+1/12
= 20/96
Work completed in 8 hours = 4×20/96=80/96
Work completed in 9 hours = 1/8+80/96=92/96
Now it’s B’s turn who work 1/12 or 8/96 per hour
Work remaining = 1-92/96=4/96
So remaining work will be completed in 4/(96/(8/96)) = 1/2 hour
Total time = 9 1/2 hour or 6 : 30 pm
S6. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Let C.P of 1 cycle = Rs 100
∴ S.P. of 1 cycle =Rs 240
New S.P. of 1 cycle =240/2=Rs 120
No. of cycles sold now = 7
∴ total new S.P. = 120 ×7 =Rs 840
Total C.P. = 700
∴ Profit remains same
S7. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Let filling capacity be x m^3/min
So, emptying capacity = (x+10) m^3/min
According to question
2400/x-2400/(x+10)=8
⇒ 2400((x+10-x)/x(x+10) )=8
⇒ x^2+10x-3000=0
⇒ x=50 m^3/min
S8. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Profit after giving discount = 20-10-200/100=8%
∴ Overall profit = (108×1)/0.9-100=18/0.9=20%
S9. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let total work = 100
Krishna’s efficiency = 10%
Mohan’s efficiency = 5%
Work done by Krishna and Mohan together in 3 days
= 15 × 3 = 45%
Now, Number of days in which Mohan completed rest (55%) work alone =55/5=11
Now number of days Krishna and Mohan both worked together = 100/15=6 2/3
∴Required difference in number of days =(11)-(6 2/3)
=13/3=4 1/3days
S10. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Total C.P. of mixed varities = 20×2+40×3+50×5
= Rs. 410
∴price per kg = Rs. 41
So, required S.P. = 120/100×41= Rs. 49.2 Join India's largest learning destination
