Answer & Explanation


1.(e) SP before 6% discount = 846 * 100/94


So, original MP = 846 x 100/94 * 100/90 = 1000



2.(a) Let CP = 100


Profit = 20%

S.P = 120

M.P = 120 * 100/80 * 100/(100-25/4) = 160



3.(c) Single discount from 1st two discount


= 10 + 20 – (10*20/100) = 28

So, final discount = 28 + 40 – (28*40/100)

= 56.8%



4.(a)Given  5% = 500


1% = 100

100% = 10000

Required price = 10000 * 80/100 = 8000






6.(d) Since  3 = 12


1 = 4

(4+6+3) = 19 * 4 = 76



7.(d) Let no 9 men = x & total population be 100


Total women = (100-x)

Married man = 45x /100    … (i)

& married women = 25/100 (100-x)  … (ii)

From (i) & (ii)

x = 500/14

So, married man = 225 /14

Married woman = 225/14

Total married population = men + women = 450/14

Required % = (450/14)/100 *100 = 450/14% = 32.14%



8.(c) Let required day = x


54 x 72 = 90 * x * 90/100

x = 48



  1. (c) Let total no of candidates = 1000


So, 1000 – (50 +50+900*1/4+900*1/5) = 396

495 = 396

1000 = 396/495 * 1000 = 800


10.(b)  Given, C’s marks= 300

C’s % marks = 300*100/400=75%

B ‘s% marks = 80%

A ‘s% marks =90%

A ‘s marks = 90% of 400 = 360
