Answer & Explanation

 

1.3; SP of house = 10,00,000 × 94100

= Rs. 9,40,000

Now, CP of another house = Rs.  9,40,000

And SP of another house = 9,40,000 × 100

112

= Rs. 10,52,800

Overall profit = Rs. 10,52,800 – Rs. 10,00,000 = Rs. 52,800

  1. 4; All the letters of the first half of the word are coded as two positions forward and those of the second half are coded as

two positions backward as in English alphabet.

 

(6-10):

Anu Malik (AM) — TIPS, Venus (×)

It means AM — HMV/T-Series/Sony ….(i)

Ismail Durbar (ID) — Dhadkan — T-Series (×) …(ii)

AR Rehman (AR)(×) — Fiza — Venus ….(iii)

NS — Champion, M Kashmir (×) — HMV … (iv)

It is clear from (ii), (iii) and (iv) that ID does not work for Venus and HMV also.

Hence, ID — Dhadkan — TIPS/Sony

From (iv) and using (ii) and (iii), it is clear that NS — Jungle — HMV

Now, from (i), (iii) and the above confirmed results, it is clear that

Jatin-Lalit — Fiza — Venus

No more definite result can be determined. Hence the remaining combinations can be written as:

AM — Champion/M Kashmir — Sony/T-Series

AR — M Kashmir/Champion — TIPS/Sony/T-Series
