**Solutions**

S1. Ans.(c)

Sol. A : B = 60 : 45 and A : C = 60 : 40.

∴ (B/C)=(B/A) × (A/C)=(45/60) × (60/40)=45/40=90/80 = 90 : 80

∴ B can give C 10 points in a game of 90.

S2. Ans.(a)

Sol. Volume of the solid = (49 ×33 ×24) cm^3.

Let the radius of the sphere be r.

Then, 4/3 πr^3 = (49 × 33 × 24) ⇔ r^3 = (49 × 33 × 24 × 3 × 7)/(4 × 22)=(21)^3 ⇔ r = 21.

S3. Ans.(a)

Sol. (4/3)×(22/7)×R^3=4851⇒R^3= 4851×(3/4)×(7/22)=(21/2)^3 ⇒ R = 21/2.

∴ Curved surface area = 4×(22/7)×(21/2)×(21/2) cm^2 = 1386 cm^2.

S4. Ans.(d)

Sol. Surface area = (34398/13) = 2646 cm^2.

∴ 6a2 = 2646 ⇒ a2 = 441 ⇒ a = 21.

So, Volume = (21 × 21 × 21) cm^3 = 9261 cm^3.

S5. Ans.(d)

Sol. Let the dimensions be 3x, 2x and x respectively. Then,

3x × 2x × x = 10368 ⇔ x^3=(10368/6) = 1728 ⇔ x = 12.

So, the dimensions of the block are 36 dm, 24 dm and 12 dm.

Surface area [2 (36 × 24 + 24 × 12 + 36 × 12)] dm^2

= [2 × 144 (6 + 2 + 3)] dm^2 = 3168 dm^2

∴ Cost of polishing = Rs. ((2 × 3168)/100) = Rs. 63.36.

S6. Ans.(b)

Sol. Let the sum be Rs. P. Then,

P(1+(R/100))^3 = 6690 …(i)

and P(1+(R/100))^6 = 10035 …(ii)

On dividing, we get (1+R/100)^3=10035/6690=3/2.

Substituting this value in (i), we get:

P × 3/2 = 6690 or P = (6690×2/3) = 4460.

Hence, the sum is Rs. 4460.

S7. Ans.(d)

Sol. Principal = Rs. [4913/(1+(25/(4 × 100))^3 ] = Rs. 4913×(16/17)×(16/17)×(16/17) = Rs. 4096.

S8. Ans.(d)

Sol. Part filled by (A + B) in 1 hour = (1/5)+(1/20)=1/4.

So, A and B together can fill the tank in 4 hours.

Work done by the leak in 1 hour = (1/4)-(2/9)=1/36.

∴ Leak will empty the tank in 36 hrs.

S9. Ans.(d)

Sol. Capacity of the tank = (12 × 13.5) litres = 162 litres.

Capacity of each bucket = 9 litres.

Number of buckets needed = (162/9) = 18.

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol. Clearly, pipe B is faster than pipe A and so, the tank will be emptied.

Part to be emptied = 2/5.

Part emptied by (A + B) in 1 minute = (1/6)-(1/10)=1/15.

∴ 1/15:2/5∷1∶x or x=(2/5)×(1×15) = 6 min.

So, the tank will be emptied in 6 min.
