Solutions:
S1. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Ratio of their efficiency = 6:4:3
∴ Pages read by Akshay = 4/13×78=24 pages
S2. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Work done in last 6 minutes = 6×(1/15+1/20)=42/60
remaining work = 1-42/60=18/60
per minute work of A, B and C together = 1/15+1/20+1/30=9/60
Total no. of minutes = (18/60)/(9/60)+6=8 minutes
S3. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let Arun’s weight be X kg.
According to Arun, 65 < X < 72
According to Arun’s Brother, 60 < X < 70
According to Arun’s Mother, X ≤ 68
The values satisfying all the above conditions are 66, 67 and 68
∴ Required average=(66+67+68)/3=67 kg
S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. 1st alloy zinc = 2/5 × 15 = 6 gm
Copper = 3/5 × 15 = 9 gm
Let copper to be removed = x
Then,
(6+10)/(9-x)=4/1
⇒ 16 = 36 – 4x
⇒ x = 5 gm
S5. Ans.(a)
Sol.
A and B can complete the work in 30 and 40 days respectively.
So, ratio of their wages =1/30:1/40=40∶30
∴ Share of B =30/(40+30)×2100=Rs 900
S6. Ans.(b)
Sol.
(A’s profit) : (B’s profit) : (C’s profit)
= (30,000 × 12) : (24,000 × 4 + 18,000 × 8) : (42,000 × 4 + 32,000 × 8)
= 30 × 12 : (24 × 4 + 18 × 8) : (42 × 4 + 32 × 8)
= 45: 30 : 53
∴B’s profit=30/128×11960 =2803.125
≈ 2,803 (approximately)
S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.
(A’s profit) : (B’s profit) : (C’s profit)
= (12,000 × 4 + 12,000 × 6) : (26,000 × 6 + 26,000 × 2) : (32,000 × 10)
= 12,000 × 10 : 26,000 × 8 : 32,000 × 10
= 15 : 26 : 40
∴ Share of B in total profit=26/(15+26+40)×53622
=Rs.17,212
S8. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Sum of all angles of quadrilateral = 360
⇒ 3x + 4x + 6x + 7x = 360
⇒ x = 18
∴ Second largest angle = 6 ×18
= 108
=180-108/2=126°
S9. Ans.(d)
Sol.
Let Ram’s present age is x years.
⇒(x+x/3+5/2 x)/3=46
⇒x=36 years.
∴Required difference=5/2×36-36/3=78 years
S10. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Ajay’s score = 63 + 30 = 93
Rahul’s score = 93 – 15 = 78
Manish’s score = 78 – 10 = 68
∴ Suresh’s score = 63 × 3 – (68 + 78) = 43
∴ Required sum = 68 + 43 = 111
