Answer & Explanation

1.  C
Monday temparature is 30. So T+W+Th=(152-30)=122
F = (160-122)= 38∘
2. C
A+B+C = 3×84=252
A+B+C+D= (4×80)=320
D = (320-252)=68 and E = (68+3)=71
Now, B+C+D+E = (4×79)=316
B+C+D=(316-71)=245 kg
So, A = (320-245)=75 kg
3. C
Let it be x . Then :
20x=360-120 or 20x=240 or x = 12
6. D
Suppose the man covers first distance in x hrs.and second distance in y hrs. Then,
4x+5y=35 and 5x+4y = 37
Solving the equations,
we get x = 5 and y = 3
Total time taken = (5+3)hrs = 8 hrs
10. D
