Answer & Explanation

 

  1. 3

Required sum = 584/(1 – 6/5) + (850 * 6)/(720 * 5)
= 584/(-1/5 + 17/12)
= 584 × 12 × 5/(-12 + 85)
= 584×12×5/73
= Rs. 480

2. 1;
Required time = 12 * 16/(16 – 12 + 4)
= 24 hours

3. 1
Let the height be h m
2 × h (10.5 + 5) = 3968/24 × 15/10
h = 3968/24 × 3/2 × 10/155 × 1/2
= 8 m

4. 4
Volume = [(12√ 3)/√ 3]^3
= 1728 m^3

5. 2
P (E1) = P (getting a spade) =
13/52 = 1/4
P (E2) = P (getting a king) =
4/52 = 1/13
P (E1 Union E2) = 1/52
P (a spade or a king) = P(E1 Union E2)
= P(E1) + P(E2) – P(E1 Intersection E2)
= 1/4 + 1/13 – 1/52
= (13 + 4 – 1)/52
= 4/13

6.4
Required percentage increase
= (550 – 225)/225 * 100
= 144%

7. 5
Average value of imports in 2010, 2012 and 2014
= (225 + 300 + 375)/3 = 300
Required percentage = 550/330 * 100 = 183%

8. 1
Percentage rise in the exports as compared to imports of a company in different years are :
2009 = (225 –175)/175 * 100 = 28.57%

2010 = (325 – 225)/225 * 100 = 44.44%

2011 = (475 – 350)/350 * 100 = 35.71%

2012 = (400 – 300)/300 * 100 = 33.33%

2013 = (550 – 450)/450 * 100 = 22.22%

2014 = (450 – 375)/375 * 100 = 20%

Hence, minimum is in the year 2014.

9. 3
Required percentage = 475/350 * 100 = 136%

10. 4;
Average exports
= (225 + 325 + 475 + 400 + 550 450)/6 = 404

Average imports = (175 + 225 + 350 + 300 + 450 + 375)/6 = 312.5
Required difference = 404 – 312.5 = 91.5
