(1) 8     (2) 81     (3) 27     (4) 122     (5) None of these

1. (1)
1200 ÷ 2.5 = 480
480 ÷ 2.5 = 192
192 ÷ 2.5 = 76.8
76.8 ÷ 2.5 = 30.72
30.72 ÷ 2.5 = 12.288
∴ ? = 12.288 ÷ 2.5 = 4.9152
2. (3)
963 – 1  x 36 = 963 – 36 = 927
927 – 2  x 36 = 927 – 72 = 855
855 – 3  x  36 = 855 – 108 = 747
747 – 4  x  36 = 747 – 144 = 603
603 – 5  x  36 = 603 – 180 = 423
∴ ? = 423 – 6  x  36 = 423 – 216
= 207

3. (2)
29 x  29 = 841
31 x 31 = 961
33 x 33 = 1089
35 x 35 = 1225
37 x 37 = 1369
39 x 39 = 1521
∴ ? = 41 x 41 = 1681
4. (4)
18 x 1 + 2 = 18 + 2 = 20
20 x 2 + 4 = 40 + 4 = 44
44 x 3 + 6 = 132 + 6 = 138
138 x 4 + 8 = 552 + 8 = 560
560 x 5 + 10 = 2800 + 10 = 2810
∴ ? = 2810 x 6 + 12 = 16860 + 12
= 16872
5. (2) : 6 x 5 – 4 = 26
26 x 5 + 4 = 134
134 x 5 – 4 = 666
666 x 5 + 4 = 3334
3334 x 5 – 4 = 16666
16666 x 5 + 4 = 83334
6. (1) : Spirit in 1 litre mix of A = 5/7 litre.
Spirit in 1 litre mix of B = 7/13 litre.
Spirit in 1 litre mix of C = 8/13 litre.
By rule of alligation we have required ratio X:Y

X         :       Y

5/7              7/13
\           /
(8/13)
/               \
(1/13)     :     (9/91)
Therefore required ratio = 1/13 : 9/91 = 7:9
7. (3) : C.P of a unit quantity of 1st kind  = Rs. 3.20
C.P of a unit quantity of 2nd kind  = Rs. 2.90
Mean price = Rs.3.08
C.P of unit quantity         C.P of unit quantity
of 1st kind                         of 2nd kind
(Rs. 3.20)                         (Rs. 2.90)

\                       /
Mean Price
(Rs.3.08)
/                        \

(3.08 – 2.90)          :           (3.20 – 3.08)
0.18                                      0.12
Required ratio = 0.18 : 0.12 = 3 : 2
8.  (3 ) : Total weight of (36+44) Students = (36×40+44×35)kg = 2980kg
Therefore average weight of the whole class = (2980/80) kg
Therefore average weight = 37.25kg
9. (3) : Total sum of 48 numbers = (50 × 30) – (35 +40)
= 1500 – 75= 1425
Average = 1425/48
= 29.68
10. (3) : Since each one of the three numbers a, b, and c is divisible by 3, the numbers can be represented as 3p,3q, and 3r, respectively, where p, q, and r are integers.
The product of the three numbers is 3p×3q×3r=27(pqr).
Since p, q, and r are integers, pqr is an integer and therefore abc is divisible by 27.
