Answer & Explanation

1.(a) Volume of water
= 5000cm  × 4400cm × 7cm = 5000 × 4400 × 7
Volume of water in one hour = 22/7X7X7X5000X100
Required Time== 5000 × 4400 × 7/(22/7X7X7X5000X100)

2.(b) The speed downstream = 20/4=5kmph
The speed upstream = 24/6=4kmph
The speed of boat in still water  = (5+4)/2=4.5kmph
The speed of current = (5-4)/2=0.5
The speed of boat and water current are 4.5 km/hr. and 0.5 km/hr. respectively.

3.(d) Speed downstream = 10 + 5 = 15 km/hr
Speed upstream = 10 – 5 = 5 km/hr
Time taken to swim 60 km downstream = 60/15=4hour
But time taken to swim 60 km up steam = = 60/5=12 hour

4.(d) Let the first class fare is 4x and second class fare is x Rs.Let the no of passengers travelling by first class is y and by second class is 40y.
total fare of first class=4xy
total fare of second class=40xy
so amount collected by first class passengers=4xy=4×25=100

5(c) Let the investment of A and B are 14a and 15a
x=8 month

6.(a) Amount for first year=6000X105/100=6300
After repaid 2100 the rest amount=6300-2100=4200
Amount for 2nd year=4200X105/100=4410
after repaid 2100 the rest amount=4410-2100=2310
amount for 3rd year=2310×105/100=2425.5

7.(c) in 5 years 2 times Let in n years 8 times=2^3 times
n=5X3=15 years

8(a)According to question
CP1=100,CP2=200 and CP3=400
SO SP1=120,SP2=220 and SP3=360
Total CP=100+200+400=700
total SP=120+220+360=720

9.(d) Let CP of first chair =x
CP of 2nd chair=900-x
so,SP of 1st chair=4x/5
and SP of 2nd chair=(900-X)5/4
1st chair CP=300 and 2nd chair=600

10(c).New price of 50 gm=100*10/100=10 paise
so, new Price of 500 gm=100 paise
