(a) 15 km/hr
(b) 16 km/hr
(c) 18 km/hr
(d) 20 km/hr
Solutions

S1. Ans.(a)
Sol.
On one watch, he earns 12% profit and on the other one 12% loss. There is, finally, no profit no loss.
Hence CPs of both the watches should be same such that their summation = Rs 3360.
Hence CP/watch = (Rs.3360)/2 = Rs. 1680
Hence option (a) is the answer.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Assume SP/kg = Rs x/kg.
CP/kg =(Rs.525)/50 = Rs. 10.5/kg
Total SP – Total CP = profit ⇒ 50x – Rs. 525 = 10 × Rs. 10.5 = Rs. 105
Or, 50x = Rs. 105 + Rs. 525 = Rs. 630
Hence x =(Rs.630)/50 = Rs. 12.6/kg

S3. Ans.(a)
Sol.
Let the number be x.
x/7- x/11 = 100
(11x-7x)/ (11 x 7)=100
4x = 77 x 100
x = 1925

S4. Ans.(d)
Sol.
LCM of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 = (2 × 2 × 3 × 2 × 5) = 120
∴ After every 2 min they toll together
∴ Number of times they toll together in one hour
=(60/2+1) times = 31 times

S5. Ans.(c)
Sol.
LCM of (2 and 5 1/2) = LCM of (2 and 11/2)
Required answer = (LCM of 2 and 11)/(HCF of 1 and 2)=22/1 = 22 ft

S6. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Let the original salaries of Ravi and Sumit be Rs. 2x and Rs. 3x respectively.
Then, (2x + 4000)/ (3x + 4000)= 40/57
57(2x + 4000) = 40(3x + 4000)
6x = 68,000
3x = 34,000
Sumit’s present salary = (3x + 4000) = Rs. (34000+ 4000) = Rs. 38,000

S7. Ans.(b)
Sol.
Ratio of time taken = 1/3 : 1/4 = 4:3
If B takes 3 min ,A takes 4 min
If B takes 48 min ,A takes (4/3 × 48)min = 64 minutes

S8. Ans.(d)
Sol.
C.P. of one mango = 12/15 = 80 paise ; S.P. of one mango = 15/12=Rs 1.25
Gain = 45 paise , gain = 45/80 × 100 = 56.25 %

S9. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Distance covered in half an hour = 4 km.
2× side of the square = 4 km
side of square = 2 km
So Area of the field = 4 sq.km.

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol.
Distance = (Speed× Time)= (12× 9/12) km = 54 km
Now, distance = 54 km and time taken = 3 hrs.
so speed = distance/time = 54/3 = 18 km/hr.
