Answer & Explanation
  1. 3;


(x+y)^2 = x^2 + y^2 + 2xy

x^2 + y^2 = (36)2 – 2 × 288 = 720


  1. 5;


C P = 14630 × 77/100 = Rs. 19000


  1. 1;


Sum of the three number = 30 × 3 = 90


  1. 4;


Let the length and breadth be 3x and 2x respectively.


2(3x + 2x)/(3x * 2x) = 5/9

10x/6x^2 = 5/9

x = 3

Length = 3 * 3 = 9m


  1. 2;


Salary of supervisor = 9000 × 16 – 8600 × 15

= 1,44,000 – 1,29,000 = Rs. 15000


  1. 5


Required number = 27 * 11 * 4/3 =396


  1. 1;


Let the present age of mother be x years

Son’s age = 34 – x

Then, (x – 6) = 20 + 34 – x – 6

2x = 54

x = 27

Required answer = 21 years


  1. 3;


Profit percentage = 5920/14800 * 100 = 40%


  1. 2


Speed of train = 330/6 = 55 m/sec

Required time = (330 + 165)/55 = 9 sec


  1. 4


Let income be Rs. x

Expenditure = Rs. 75/100x

Saving = Rs. 25/100x


Now, income = Rs. 120/100x


Expenditure = Rs. 75/100 * 116/100


Savingsn = 120x/100 – (75 * 116)x/10000

= (120/100 – 87/100)x

= 33/100x


Saving increased = (33x – 25x)/25x * 100 = 32%
