1.(1) 1250 + 49 = 1299 + 36 = 1335 + 25 = 1360 + 16 = 1376 + 9 = 1385 + 4 = 1389

2.(3) (6840/2) + 2 = (3418/2) + 2 = (1707/2) + 2 = (851.5/2) + 2 = (423.75/2) +2 = 209.875

3.(4) 1340 – 7 = 1333 – 14 = 1319 – 21 = 1298 – 28 = 1270 – 35 = 1235 – 42 = 1193

4.(5)123 x 2 + 2 = 248 x 2 + 2 = 498 x 2 + 2 = 998 x 2 + 2 = 1998 x 2 + 2 = 3998 x 2 + 2 = 7998 x 2 + 2 = 15998

5.(4) 32,21 x 0.5 + 5 = 15.5 x 0.5 + 5 = 12.75 x 0.5 + 5 = 11.375 x 0.5 + 5 = 10.6875 x 0.5 + 5

6.(1) Required number of ways = (7C5 X 3C2) = (7C2 X 3C1) = [(7X6 / 2X1) X 3] = 63.

7.(4) used equation—- 5% of A + 4% of B = 2/3 (6% of A + 8% of B) A : B = 4 : 3

8.(2) For managing, A received = 5% of Rs.7400 = Rs. 370.

Balance = Rs. (7400 – 370) = Rs. 7030.

=39000 : 42000 : 30000

=13 : 14 : 10

B’s share = Rs. 7030 x 14/37 = Rs. 2660.
