Answer & Explanation
  1. (B); Let Ramesh’s age be x years and Suresh’s age be y years.
    Now, 10 years ago, Ramesh’s age=x-10
    Suresh’s age=y-10
    So, x-10=6(y-10)…………….(i)
    6 years from now, Ramesh’s age=x+6
    Suresh’s age=y+6
    So, x+6=2(y+6)…………..(ii)
    Solving (i) and (ii), we get
    ∴ x=34 years
    And y=14 years
    ∴ Ratio of Suresh’s age to Ramesh’s age 4 years ago=(14-4)/(34-4)=10/30=1/3

    ∴ Reqd ratio=1 : 3

    2. (A); Let the population of the village be x.
    And population of illiterates=770
    Then, 770=55x/100
    Or, x=(770×100)/55
    ∴ Number of literate=1400-770=630

  2. (D); Loss in selling=650000-600000=Rs. 50000
    So, 50000= (CP×5)/100
    ∴ CP=5000000/5

    Hence, CP=Rs. 1000000

    4. (D); P=2458.50, R=10%
    Now, SI=(P×R×T)/100
    Or, 2458.50=(2458.50×10×T)/100
    Hence, T=10 years

  3. (A); P=60000, T=3/4 years
    ∴ R=20/4=5% quarterly
    Now, A=P(1+4/100)^4t
  4. (D); Number of History students in Nagpur=5000
    Number of Economics students in Jodhpur=14000
    ∴ Reqd%=(14000×5000)/14000×100=64.28%
  5. (A); Number of faculty members in Nodia =10000×8/100=800
    Number of Economics students in Indore=6000
  6. (c); Reqd ratio=44000∶2200=20∶1

9. (B); In Nagpur=(Number of students)/(Number of faculty members)
In Nodia=(4000+9000+13000+16000)/(10000×8/100)=52.5≈53
In Jodhpur=(2000+4000+12000+14000)/(10000×16/100)=20
In Patna=(6000+10000+12000+16000)/(10000×22/10)=20
In Lucknow=(2000+6000+8000+14000)/(10000×24/100)=12.5≈13
In Noida the number of students per teacher is the maximum.

10. (E); Number of students in History=5000+11000+4000+12000+12000+14000=58000
Number of students in Hindi=12000+10000+13000+2000+10000+6000=53000
Number of students in Economics=8000+6000+16000+14000+16000+2000=62000
Number of students in Chemistry=2000+8000+9000+4000+6000+8000=37000

In Chemistry the number of students is the minimum.
