Answer & Explanation

 

  1. 1

Total letters are ‘9’ in which ‘P’ and ‘I’ comes twice

Number of arrangements = 9!/2!2! = 90720

  1. 2

Let the principal be ‘x’

Interest = (27863 – x)

x = {(27863 – x) * 100}/7*7

49x = 2786300-100x

x = 18700

  1. 3

Let the cost price be x

x + x * 18.75/100 = 19475

118.75x/100 = 19475

x = Rs. 16400

  1. 4

Let its population two years back was ‘x’

x * 108/100 * 95/100 = 127224

x = 124000

  1. 2

21 men 1 day work = 1/16

1 men 1 day work = 1/(16 * 21)

8 men 1 day work = 8/(16 * 21) = 1/42

8 men can finish the work in 42 days

  1. 1

Ratio between profit of A, B & C

= 12 × 12 : 18 × 7 : 54 × 5 = 8 : 7 : 15

Share of B = 122280/30 * 7 = 28532

  1. 1

Let total number of goats be ‘x’ and that of hens be

‘y’

x + y = 83 …(I)

4x + 2y = 260

2x + y = 130 …(II)

equation (II) – equation (I)

2x + y = 130

x + y = 83

– – –

x = 47

y = 83 – 47 = 36

Difference = 47 – 36 = 11

  1. 3

x^2 + y^2 = (x + y)^2 – 2xy

(103)^2 – 2 * 2640 = 10609 – 5280 = 5329

  1. 2; LCM of 4, 6, 10, 14 and 20 is 420

So they will toll together every time after 420 seconds

Number of toll is one hour = (60 * 60)/420 = 8.571

  1. 2

28/(100 + 28) * 100 = 27.874%
