Answer & Explanation
  1. 3

? = (100 – 1/51) * 561 = 56089


  1. 2

? = 114/100 * 250 + 124/100 * 450

= 285 + 558 = 843


  1. 5

? = 5/21 + 6/35

= (25 + 18)/105 = 43/105


  1. 3

From statement A,

Total CP of 80 kg = (5200 + 400) = Rs. 5600


From statement B, profit = 15%

Combining both the statement A and B, we get


SP = 115/100 * 5600 = Rs. 6440

SP per kg of sugar = 6440/80 = Rs. 80.5


  1. 4;

Let edge of the cube be a metre.

From statement A;

a^2 = 81

a = 9 m

Volume = a^3 = 93 = 729 m^3


From statement B,

a = 9 m

Volume = a3 = 93 = 729 m3


  1. 2

From statement B,

Speed of boat in still water = 1/2 * 16 = 8 km/hr


  1. 3

Let the original number be 10x + y

(10x + y) – (10y + x) = 36

9x – 9y = 36

x – y = 4 and x + y = 8

x = 6; y = 2

The original number = 62


  1. 4

Let two trains meet at x km from station S1


Time taken by K to cover (640 – x) km – Time taken by J to cover x km.

40/60 = 2/3

(640 – x)/100 – x/80 = 40/60

x = 6880/ = 254.81 km


  1. 3

Let the money lent to Anshul be Rs. x


Then, money lent to Rajat = Rs. (20000 – x)


SI for Anshul = x * 20 * 4/100 = 20x/25


SI for Rajat = (20000 – x) * 24 * 4/100 =


According to the question,

20x/25 – (20000 – x) 24/25 = 864

x = 11400


Amount lent to Rajat = Rs. (20000 – 11400) = Rs. 8600


  1. 1;

Speed of the person = 6 km/hr

= 6 * 5/18 = 5/3 m/s

Let the speed of train be x m/s

20 = 280/(x – 5/3)

x – 5/3 = 14

x = 47/3m/s

Now the distance covered by train in 45 minutes.

= 47/3 * 60 * 45 = 42300

Time taken by person to cover the distance

= 42300/(6*5/18) = 25380 sec

25380/(60 * 60) = 7 hours 3 minutes
