Solutions:
S1. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Let level of water will be increased by h.
π×(35/2)^2×h=4/3 π(12)^3
⇒h=4/3×(12×12×12×4)/(35×35)
=7.52 cm

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Let total cost price of articles = 100 x
∴ 2800×76/100+2800+1200=125/100×100x
x = Rs.49.024
cost price = Rs.4902.4
S5. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let length of train B = x m
∴ length of train A = 2x m
Let speed of train B = s m/sec
And, speed of train A(in m/sec)
=90×5/18
= 25 m/sec
ATQ,
(25 – s) × 5 = (25 – 2s) ×15
⇒ 25 – s = 75 – 6s
⇒ s = 10 m/sec
∴ Length of train B
=((25-10)×5)/3
= 25 m
S6. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let Trisha’s age = x
∴ Samartha’s age = 5x
Phalguni’s age = x + 26
ATQ,
⇒ 3(5x – 10) – 2 (x + 26 – 10) = 42
⇒ x = 8
∴ Required ratio=(8+26+12)/(5×8+2)
=46/42
=23/21
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol. Ratio of their investments = 12500:20000
= 5:8
Let x be the total profit amount, then
ATQ, (x/4+5/13×x/2)-(5/13×x)=378
Or, (13x-10x)/52=378
Or, x= Rs. 6552
S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Simple interest on sum after 5 years = 450
Simple Interest for 1 year = 90
Simple Interest for 12 year = 90 × 12 = 1080
