Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Let the unit’s place digit be x and ten’s place digit by,
x + y = 9
and (10y + x) + 9 = (y + 10x)
On solving Equation (i) and (ii), we get x = 5 and y = 4.
Hence, required number is 45.

S2. Ans.(a)
Sol. Number of lampposts required = 3000/75 + 1
= 40 + 1 = 41

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Let marked price = x
According to the question,
x × 85/100 = 629
∴ x = (629 × 100)/85 = Rs. 740

S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. A : B : C = 100 : 90 : 87
∴B/C=90/87=(90 × 2)/(87 × 2)=180/174
Thus, while B covers 180 m, C covers 174 m.
∴ B beats C by 6 m.

S7. Ans.(c)
Sol. Net part emptied by both in 1 hr
=((1/5)-(1/8))=3/40
3/40 part is emptied in 1 hr.
3/4 part will be emptied in = (40/3)×(3/4) = 10 hours.

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Ram : Shyam : Kamal = 3 : 4 : 7
Kamal’s share = 21000×(7/14) = Rs. 10500
S10. Ans.(d)
Sol. Let man’s present age be x years.
His age 15 years ago = (x – 15) years;
His age 15 years hence = (x + 15) years.
(x + 15) = 4(x – 15)
⇒ 3x = 75
⇒ x = 25
His present age is 25 years.
