Solutions

S1. Ans.(c)
Sol. Here, passing marks of the candidate
= 40 + 30 = 70
Let the total marks be x
Then, x=70/35  × 100
x = 200

S2. Ans.(c)
Sol. Here, total number of votes = 8400
Valid votes = 8400 – 2100 = 6300
=6300×52/100=3276
Number of votes got by other candidate
= 6300 – 3276 = 3024

S3. Ans.(b)
Sol. Here, ratio of students in school,
A : B : C = 5 : 4 : 7
New ratio =5×120/100 ∶4×125/100 ∶7×120/100
= 600 : 500 : 840
= 30 : 25 : 42

S4. Ans.(a)
Sol. Here,
Population of the country increases at the rate of 10% every year
Then, overall percentage increase.
=10+10+  (10 × 10)/100=21%
So, population in January 2008
=15.8×121/100
= 15.8 × 1.21
= 19.118 lakh

S5. Ans.(a)
Sol. Original price of the sugar = x rs/kg
Reduced price = (100-6.25)x/100 =0.9375 x
She can buy 1kg more with the reduced money
So,
(120/0.9375x)-(120/x)=1
x = 8
Reduced price = 0.9375 x
= Rs. 7.50 kg

S6. Ans.(a)
Sol. According to the formula,
Gain percentage
=Error/(True Value – Error)×100
=70/(1000 – 70)×100
=70/930×100
=70/930×100
=700/93=7 49/93%

S7. Ans.(a)
Sol. Here, r = 20% and R = 10%
∴ Gain percentage of grocer
=((20 + 10)/(100 – 10)×100)%
=(30/90×100)%
=(1/3×100)%
=100/3%=33 1/3%

S8. Ans.(b)
Sol. Given that, a = 6%, b = 14 g, c = 16 g
According to the formula,
[(100-6)  16/14  -100]%
=(94×8/7-100)%
=((752 – 700)/7)%=52/7%=7 3/7%
Here ‘+’ sign show that there is a gain.

S9. Ans.(b)
Sol. Here, cost price of TV set = Rs. 11250
Discount = 10%
Expenditure on transport and installation
= 150 + 800 = Rs. 950
∴ Total cost price of the article
= 11250 + 950
= Rs. 12200
Profit = 15%
∴ Selling price =12200×115/100
= 122 × 115
= Rs. 14030

S10. Ans.(c)
Sol. CP of 6 toffees = Rs. 1
SP of 6 toffees = 150% of Rs. 1
=150/100×1=Rs.3/2
∴ For Rs. 2/3, the number of toffees sold = 6
∴ For Rs. 1, the number of toffees sold
=6×2/3=4
