Answer & Explanation


  1. 4

Imports > Exports

Import/ Exports > 1


  1. 4

I/E = 0.7

E = I/0.7 = 51.688/0.7 = 73.84 lakh


  1. 2

Ia/Ea = 0.8

Ia = 0.8 * 84 = 67.2 lakh

Ib/Eb = 0.9

Ib = 0.9 * 84 = 75.6 lakh

Diff = 75.6 – 67.2 = 8.4 lakh


  1. 2

Ia/Ea = 1.2

Ib/Eb = 0.9

Let export of A and B are X

Ia = 1.2x

Ib = 0.9x

Req% = 0.9x/1.2x * 100 = 75%


  1. 3

I/E = 0.8

I1 = I + 200I/100 = 3I

E1 = E + 100E/100 = 2E


Ratio = I1/ E1 = 3I/2E = 3/2 * 0.8 = 1.2


  1. 3;

Let the original cost price is ‘x’, so selling price is

115 x/100 = 23 x/ 20


Now CP = x – 200,

S.P. = 23x/20 – 200


Profit = 23x/20 – 200 – (x – 200) = 23x/20 – x = 3x/20


% profit = 3x/20 * 1/(x – 200) * 100 = 20


3x/(x – 200) = 4

3 x = 4 x – 800

x = 800

  1. 5;

Let the rate of interest is r% p.a.

4200 * r * 3/100 + 6500 * r * 7/100 = 8134

126 r + 455 r = 8134

r = 8134/581 = 14% pa

  1. 1

Let the principal is P and rate of interest is r

P (1 + R/100)^3 = 107811

P (1 + R/100) ^2 = 98010

Dividing eq I by II

1 + R/100 = 107811/98010

R/100 = 9801/98010

R = 980100/98010 = 10% pa

P = (1 + 10/100)^2 = 98010

p = 98010 * 100/121 = 81000

  1. 2

Now 6 letters are left for six different place

Req No. of wages = 6P6 = 6! = 720

  1. 3

n(S) = 16C3 = 560

n (E) = Number of ways of selecting 3 balls out of 7 =

7C3 = 7!/3!4! = 35

P(E) = 35/560 = 1/16
