Answer & Explanation


Sol 1. (d); Let Length, breadth & height of a pipe=6x, 5x & 4x 



so, l=90, b=75, h=60

Sol 2. (c); Number of boxes=(800X700X600)/(8X7X6)=1000000

Sol 3. (d); l^2+b^2=(10)^2 …………..(i)

& l^2+b^2+h^2=[10(2)^(1/2)]^2 ………….(ii)

from eq. (i) & (ii)


Sol 4. (d); Let initial l=x, b=2x, h=3x

after increase l=2x, b=6x, h=9x

original volume=x*2x*3x=6x^3 

New volume=2x*6x*9x=108x^3 

increase in volume=(102x^3)/(6x^3)=17 time

Sol 5. (d); Number of boys=(8X6X3)/0.64=225

Sol 6. (c); Let edge of each cube = a cm

total surface area of these cubes=3X6a^2=18 a^2

length of new Cuboid=3a

breath=a, height=a

S.A of this Cuboid=2(3a^2+a^2+3a^2)=14a^2 

Required ratio=14a^2/18a^2=7 : 9

Sol 7. (c); Thickness=volume/Area=0.5/10000 m=0.005 cm


Sol 8. (c); Area of Field=(22X14)=308 m^2

Area of tank= 3X2=6 m^2

Rise in level=Volume/ Area= [(3X2X1.5)X100]/(308-6)cm=2.98 cm

Sol 9(d). Height=Volume/Area=24/(4X2)= 2 m

Area to be painted=2(l+b)h+lb


=28+12= 40

since painting has to be done on both side 

so,total area = 2*40 = 80 

hence total cose = 80*10= 800 

Sol 10, (b); 2X15X12=2(15+12)Xh

h=(2X15X12)/(2X27)=20/3 m 

Volume =15X12X(20/3)=1200 m^3
