Solutions
S1. Ans.(a)
Sol. A : B : C : D = 1/3 ∶1/4 ∶1/5 ∶1/6
= 20 : 15 : 12 : 10
= 57
S2. Ans.(d)
Sol. A : B = (2 : 3) ×4
B : C = (4 : 5)×3
A : B : C = 8 : 12 :15

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Inradius of equilateral triangle =side/(2√3)
√3=side/(2√3)
side = 6 cm
perimeter of an equilateral triangle = 3 × 6 = 18 cm
S5. Ans.(b)
Sol. Circumference of circle = πd
∴ πd – d = 150
d(π – 1) = 150
d(22/7-1)=150
d×(15/7)=150
d=(150×7)/15=70
