Answer & Explanation

1. (3)
C.P. of the item = ( 6750 ×100 )/75 = Rs 9000
So, Reqd. S.P. of the item = (9000 × 115)/100=Rs 10350

2. (1)
Length of the rectangle = 112/8 = 14 cm, so  perimeter= 44 cm,
Circumference= 132-44=88 cm,
R = (88 × 7 )/(2 ×22)  = 14cm

3. (4)

4. 2)
Number = 740 × 35/100 – 34 = 225
2/5  of the number=90

5. (3)
The largest angle of the quadrilateral (6 ×360)/(6+4+3+5) = 120 degrees
Smallest angle of the triangle = 120 × 1/4 = 30 degrees
If second largest angle of the triangle = (x + 10)
So 30+ x+ x+10 = 180 , x = 70 degrees

6. (2)

7. (3)

8. (5)

9. (5) Total ways = 16C3   = 16!/(13!×3!) = 560
Favourable ways = 4C3 + 5C3  = 4!/(3!×1!) + 5!/(3!×2!)
Required probability = 1/40

10. (2)
