(a) 33.33m.

(b) 25m.

(c) 20m.

(d) 40m.

**Solutions**

S2. Ans.(b)

Sol.

∛a+∛b=∛c

=∛a+∛b-∛c=0 …(i)

If a + b + c = 0

Then a^3+b^3+c^3=3abc

From equation (i)

a+b-c=-3∛abc

Cubing both side

(a+b-c)^3=-27 abc

(a+b-c)^3+27abc=0

S4. Ans.(a)

Sol. 20% yearly = 10% half year

=11/10

13310/10000=(11/10)^n

(11/10)^3=(11/10)^n

n = 3 years

=1 1/2 year

S6. Ans.(d)

Sol.

Let the C.P. of each article be Rs. x

Then, C.P. of 16 articles = Rs. 16x

S.P. of 15 articles = 135% of Rs. 16x

=Rs.(135/100)×16x=Rs.108x/5

S.P. of 1 article = Rs. (108x/5)×(1/15) = Rs. 36x/25

If S.P. is Rs. 96, M.P. = Rs. 100

If S.P. is Rs. =36x/25, M.P. = Rs. (100/96)×(36x/25)

= Rs. 3x/2

Increase in M.P. over C.P.

=((3x/2)-x)/x)×100

= 50%

S7. Ans.(d)

Sol.

Let the cost of mobile phone = 100

So, P = 112 Rs.

Q = 96 Rs.

Required ratio Q : P = 96 : 112 = 6 : 7

S9. Ans.(b)

Sol.

According to the formula,

Required distance = ab(t1+t2 )/(b – a)

Where a = 5/2, b = 7/2, t1 = 6, t2 = 6

∴ Required distance = ( (5/2) × (7/2) x (12/60) ) / (7/2) – ( 5/2)

(35/4) x (1/5)

=7/4 km

S10. Ans.(a)

Sol.

Time taken by A to run 1 km = 290 seconds.

Time taken by B to run 1 km = 300 seconds.

A can give B a start of (300 – 290) sec, i.e. 10 sec.

In 300 sec, B runs 1000 m.

In 10 sec, B runs (1000/300) × 10 m = 100/3 m

∴ A can give B a start of 100/3 m.
