Answer & Explanation
  1. 3;

Total runs = 60×50 = 3000 runs

After excluding two innings.

Total runs = 48×58 = 2784 runs

H + L = 216, and H – L = 180

Lowest (L) = 18runs


  1. 3;

Salary spends in Household’s item = 50%

Transport = 50% of remaining salary

Entertainment and sports = (10 + 5)%


Remaining salary Household’s item = 50%

Transport = 50%

Entertainment and sports = 85%

Now, 1/2 * 1/2 * 17/20 * total salary = 1020

Total salary = Rs. 4800


Expenditure on transport = 4800 * 1/2 * 1/2 = Rs. 1200

1 day work hen they work together

= 1/2(1/15 + 1/20 + 1/12) = 1/2{(4 + 3 + 5)}/60 = 1/2 * 12/60 = 1/10


Together they can complete in 10 days.


A’s alone one day work = (1/10 – 1/20) = 1/20


A can alone complete this task = 20 days
