1) 3 : 2              2) 3 : 8             3) 1 : 2           4) 4 : 3           5) None of these

Answer & Explanation

1. 4

Using statements A

Profit % = (5 – 4)/4 * 100 = 25%

Cost price = 125 * 100/125 = Rs. 96

Profit = 120 – 96 = Rs. 24

Similarly, we can find profit by using statement B.

2. 5

From statement A salary of C = 2.5 B

From statement B, A + B = 2 × 4000 = Rs. 8000

3. 2

From statement B, radius of circle = sq. root (169) m = 13m

Required area = π r^2

= 22/7 * (13)^2

4. 1

From statement A, 3/5 * x = x – 90

2/5x = 90


From B, x/4 = x/4 we can’t determine the value of x

5. 4

Since, speed of car = Distance covered by it/ Time taken by it

6. 1

5x^2 + 6x + 1 < 0

6x^2 + 3x + 2x + 1 < 0

(2x + 1) (3x + 1) < 0

(x + 1/2) (x + 1/3) <0

– 1/2 < x < -1/3

7. 5

From equation I:

x^2 = 9

x = +/-3

From II:

y^2 + 8y + (4)^2 = 0

(y + 4)^2 = 0

y = – 4

x > y

8. 1

I: 4x^2 + 12x – 2x – 6 = 0

4x (x + 3) – 2 (x + 3) = 0

(4x – 2) ( x + 3) = 0

x = -3 or 1/2


y^2 – 5y + 6 = 0

(y -3)(y – 2) = 0

y = 3 or 2

y > x

9. 3

___r^2 * 72 = 4/3 π  * (6)^3

r^2 = 4

r = 2 cm

10. 5

Area of rhombus = 1/2 * 3x * 4x = 6x^2

Square of the shorter diagonal = 3x^2 = 9x^2

Req. Ratio = 6x^2/9x^2 = 2/3
