Answer & Explanation


1.(3)A is traingle

Area of A=1/2(16X12)=96m^2

Cost of flooring of A=96X50=4800


2.(1) Perimeter of B=2(10+20)=60 m

cost of fencing of B=60X15=900 Rs.

Perimeter of C=4X15=60 m

So, cost of fencing of C=60X18=1080 Rs.

Required difference=1080-900=180


3.(4) Area of D=BaseXHeight=20X12=240 m^2

cost of flooring of D=240X60=14400

Perimeter of D=2(20+12)=64

cost of Fencing of D=64X25=1600

Required ratio=14400:1600=9:1


  1. (4) Perimeter of E=2PiR=2X22/7X10=440/7 m

Cost of Fencing of E=440/7X22=1382.85

Area of C=15^2=225m^2

Cost of flooring of C=225X40=9000

Required %=1382.85X100/9000=15.36%


5.(2) Fencing cost of C=1080

Fencing cost of D=1600

Required %=(1080X100)/1600=67.5%


  1. (4) selling price of Ghee=120 per kg.


Total cost price=120X100/110=109.09

Cost of packaging=109.09-80-8=21.09 Rs.


  1. (3) Selling price of Rice=40X105/100=42

Selling price of Sugar=45+5+50=100

Required difference=100-42=58


  1. (5) Selling price of pulse=90 Rs.


Total CP=90X100/94=95.74

Cost of packaging of pulse=95.74-70.10=15.74


  1. (1) CP of Rice=40

SP of milk=40X80/100=32

CP of milk=20+3+2=25

% profit=(32-25)/25X100=28%


  1. (3) CP of (4 kg Ghee+3kg Rice+5 kg milk)

= 4X(80+8)+3X40+5X(20+3)


SP of( 4 kg Ghee+3kg Rice+5kg milk)


% profit=(766-587)/587X100=30.49%

Answer & Explanation


  1. 5
  2. 2
  3. 4
  4. 2
  5. 5
  6. 5
  7. 2
  8. 3
  9. 4;

From statement I

Eminent School and vague ® no ro jo vi …(i)

vague aim service – jo ti di …… (ii)

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

vague – jo

I alone is not sufficient to answer.

From statement II, Provision enforce personal – da na

pa ………(iii)

Eminent and fruit service – la ma ro vi …….. (i)

Thus, statement II alone is not sufficient to answer

from statement I & II together.

Using equations (i) and (iv), we get and/eminent – ro/vi

Thus, statement I and statement II together are not sufficient to answer.


  1. 4; From statement I – R, S > P, T not sufficient

From statement II – R > Q > P not sufficient.

Combining statement I & statement II, R > S > Q > P >

T ….. (i)

or, S > R > Q > T > P ……..(ii)

R > S > Q > T > P ……. (ii)

S > R > Q > P > T …… (iv)

And so on,

Hence, either S or R is the tallest.

Therefore, the data in both the statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the given question.


  1. 5; From statement I
    Aeroplane = 4th from the right and 4th to the right of car

Position of car = 4 + 4 = 8th from the right

From statement II – train = 7th from the left and 4th from the left of car.

Position of car = 7 + 4 = 11th from the left from I and II together, Total number of toys = 8 + 4 – 1= 18.
