Answer & Explanation
  1. 4

? = (4200 / 60 * 30)/21 = 70*30/21 = 100

 

  1. 3

? = 960 * 780 / 24 = 31200

 

  1. 1

Let the cost price of mobile be Rs. x and laptop be Rs.(78000-x)

x * 25/100 – (78000-x) * 15/100 = 78000 * 5/100

25x + 15x – 78000 × 15 = 78000 × 5

40x = 78000 × 20

x = Rs. 39000

 

4.3;

Suppose the man works overtime for x hours.

Now, working hours in 5 week = 5 × 6 × 8 = 240 hr.

240 × 40 + x × 45 = 10, 500

9600 + 45x = 10,500

x = (10500 – 9600)/45 = 20hr

Total hours = 240 + 20 = 260hr

 

  1. 4; Let the number of boys and girls be x each

3(x – 10) = x Þ 2x = 30

x = 15

Total number of students = 2x = 30

 

  1. 2; Number of questions attempted correctly

= 70% of 10 + 50% of 30 + 60% of 45

= 7 + 15 + 27 = 49

Passing grade = 60/100 * 85 = 51

 

Reqd Ans = 51 – 49 = 2

 

  1. 5; Total paint required = 45 + wastage = 45 + x

 

x/(45 + x) * 100 = 6.25

100x = 281.25 + 6.25x

x = 3kg

 

Total number of tins = (45 + 3)/4 = 12 tins

 

  1. 1

Sugar contained = 5/100 * 8 = 0.4

Now, % sugar in remaining solution = 0.4/7 * 100 = 5.71%

 

  1. 3;

For distance,

 

Distance travelled in 8 days by 1st man,

D1 = 12 × 8 = 96 km.

and by 2nd man,

D2 = 20 × 8 = 160 km

For remaining distance, let both take t days

to reach the final destination.

x – 96 = 2 × 12 × t

x – 96 = 24 t ………. (i)

and x – 160 = 20 t …… (ii)

From (i) and (ii); we get,

x – 96 – x + 160 = 24 t – 20 t

64 = 4 t

t = 16 days.

Total number of days = 16 + 8 = 24 days.

 

  1. 2

Q’s share = 1 / (1 + 5/100)^6 : 1 / (1 + 5/100)^8

= 1 : (100/105)^2

= 21^2 : 20^2

= 441 : 400

 

P’s share = 441/841 * 12615 = Rs. 6615

 

Q’s share = 400/841 * 12615 = Rs. 6000

Answer & Explanation
  1. 3;
  2. 3;
  3. 4;
  4. 2;
  5. 4;
  6. 1;
  7. 2; Distance travelled by Varun shown in fig. i.e.

DC = EB = 2m.

EA = EB + BA = 10 + 2 = 12m

Triangle(DEA) is right angled at E.

DA^2 = DE^2 + EA^2

DA = sqroot(DE^2 + EA^2)

DA = 13m

 

  1. 2

Sex of Kumud is unknown So, Pramod at least have two daughters.

 

  1. 5

Option (3) is re-statement and only option (4) can be

concluded as ‘<‘ supersedes ‘≤‘. Hence, Q < B.
