Answer & Explanation

1.(2): Total share of B and D together = Rs (5 + 11) x (1668/ (7 – 3))

= Rs 6672


  1. (3): 75% of total amount = 55,475 + 28525

= 84000

Hence, total amount = (4/3 x 8400)

= Rs 1, 12,000


  1. (5):Ratio of their shares = 42 x 12 : 57 x 8

= 21: 19

Hence, required difference in shares = (21 – 19) x (26000/(26 + 19))

= 2/45 x 26000

= Rs 1300


  1. (5): Cost Price = (522 x 378)/2

= Rs 450


  1. (4)

  2. (2)

  3. (4) :
    Let the Sachin and jatin age be 8x and 11x. Now

= (8x + 10)/ (11x + 10) = 13/16

= 128x + 160 = 143x + 130

=143x-128x = 160-130

= 15x = 30

= x = 30/15

= 2


  1. (4) :Total no. of students playing badminton from school ‘A’ = 75 + [ (125×20)/100] = 100


  1. (2) :required % =[ (100×195)/225] = 86.67%


  1. (3) : required difference = 1/5 [(250-240)+(200-210)+(225-200)+(215-130)+(200-165)]

= (10-10+25+85+35)/5

= 145/5



  1. (2): required % = [175/(175+245+215+130+45)]×100

= (175/810)×100

= 21.60 approx.


  1. (1): Average  no. of students playing all the given games from schools = [1/5 (250+200+200+210+125)]

= 985/5


Hence, required difference = 197- 125

= 72
