Answer & Explanation

1. 3;

Req. ratio = (65.50 * 34)/100 : (38.25 * 27)/100
= 222700 :103275
= 8908 : 4131

2. 3;

No. of men in city A = (44.35/100 * 42) thousands
= (44.35 * 42)/100 thousands
= 18627
No. of men in city B = (35.40 * 38)/100 thousands = 13452
No. of men in city C = (52.10 * 52)/100thousands = 27092
No. of men in city D = (65.50 * 34)/100 thousands = 22270
No. of men in city E = (38.25 * 50)/100 thousands = 19125
No. of men in city F = (45.50 * 47)/100 thousands = 21338

3. 1;
Req. % = (52.10 * 100)/ (44.35 35.40 52.10 65.50 38.25 45.40)
= 18.5409 = 19 % (approx)

4. 1;
Req. % = {(45.40 * 24)/100 * 100}/ {(35.40 * 28)/100} = 109.92%

5. 3;
Req. average
= 1/6 {(44.35*42)/100 + (35.40*38)/100 + (52.10*52)/100 + (65.50*34)/100 + (38.25*50)/100 + (45.40*47)/100}
1/(6*100) (12190.4) thousand = 20317(1/3) thousands

6. 2;
Let side of the cube = x units
Total surface area of three cubes = 3 × 6 x^2 = 18 x^2
Total surface area of cuboid = 2 (lb + bh + lh)
= 2 ( x × 3x + 3x × x + x × x)
Req. ratio = 14 x^2/ 18 x^2
= 7 : 9

7. 5;
Let outer radius = R
Inner radius = r = R – 7
2 * 22/7 *r  = 220
R = 220/(2*22) * 7 = 35m
r = 35 – 7 = 28 m.
Area of track = 22/7 (R^2 – r^2 )
= 22/7{(35)^2 – (28)^2} = 1386 m^2

Cost of levelling the track = Rs. (1386×0.50) = Rs. 693

8. 2;
Total characters in Ram’s project report = 25× 60 × 75
Let the new number of pages = x
Then,
n × 55 × 90 = 25 × 60 × 75 = n = 22.72
This means Ram’s report would require 23 pages
Req. % drop = (23 – 25)/25 * 100 = –8%

9. 3;
Given ratio = 7/2 : 4/3 : 6/5 = 105 : 40 : 36
Ratio of investments (i.e. ratio of profit) =
[105 × 4 + (150 % of 105) × 8] : (40 × 12) : 36 × 12
= 1680 : 480 : 432 = 35 : 10 : 9
B’s share in the profit
= 9/(35 + 10 + 9) * 43200 = 9/54 * 43200 = Rs. 7200

10. 3;
Efficiency of A = 1/16 work/day

In 4 days ‘A’ can complete 1/16 * 4 = 1/4 work

Remaining work = 1 – 1/4 = 3/4 work

B complete 3/4 work in 10 days.
B complete 1 work in 40/3 days
A and B together finish the work in
= 1/ (1/16 + 3/40) = 80/11 = 7(3/11) days
