Q10. In a test, A scored 10% more than B and B scored 5% more than C. If  C scored 300 marks out of 400, then A’s marks are:
(a) 350           (b) 360           (c) 310           (d) 325           (e)none of these

1.(e) SP before 6% discount = 846 * 100/94
So, original MP = 846 x 100/94 * 100/90 = 1000

2.(a) Let CP = 100

Profit = 20%
S.P = 120
M.P = 120 * 100/80 * 100/(100-25/4) = 160

3.(c) Single discount from 1st two discount

= 10 + 20 – (10*20/100) = 28
So, final discount = 28 + 40 – (28*40/100)
= 56.8%

4.(a)Given  5% = 500

1% = 100
100% = 10000
Required price = 10000 * 80/100 = 8000

5.(d)

3/5                               7/10

2/3

7/10 – 2/3                  2/3 – 3/5

1   :  2

6.(d) Since  3 = 12

1 = 4
(4+6+3) = 19 * 4 = 76

7.(d) Let no 9 men = x & total population be 100

Total women = (100-x)
Married man = 45x /100    … (i)
& married women = 25/100 (100-x)  … (ii)
From (i) & (ii)
x = 500/14
So, married man = 225 /14
Married woman = 225/14
Total married population = men + women = 450/14
Required % = (450/14)/100 *100 = 450/14% = 32.14%

8.(c) Let required day = x

54 x 72 = 90 * x * 90/100
x = 48

9. (c) Let total no of candidates = 1000

So, 1000 – (50 +50+900*1/4+900*1/5) = 396
495 = 396
1000 = 396/495 * 1000 = 800

10.(b)  Given, C’s marks= 300
C’s % marks = 300*100/400=75%
B ‘s% marks = 80%
A ‘s% marks =90%
A ‘s marks = 90% of 400
= 360
