Answer & Explanation

1.(a) Here volume of water emptied by the second pipe will be 4 times to that of first Hence, Time take will be 1/4 of the first pipe. When both the pipes are open the part of the tank emptied in 1 minute= 1/8 Hence the tank will be emptied in 8 minutes.

2.(d) (A+B+C) one day’s work =1/10+ 1/15+1/12= 1/4
Hence together they complete the work in 4 days

3.(a) MP of 30 = SP 40
MP/SP = 40/30
Discount = (10/40)*100= 25%

4.(a)  Area =base X height =6.5X10  = 65cm2
Let the diagonal of rhombus be d1 and d2.
Area = 1/2 d1d2 = 65
= 1/2X 26X d2 = 65
d2 =  5

5.(b) Let the age of younger one be x and other x+5

 so, x+(x+5) = 35 
x= 15


7.(e) a:b:c = 8:12:15

a^2: b^2 :c^2: =64:144:225


9.(b) (T+264)/T = 20/8 

T = 176 

10.(c) difference = PR^2/100^2
