II. The man invested @ of 10% per annum simple interest.

Answer & Explanation


Number of items produced by company C3 = 72/360 * 160000 = 32000


Total cost of production = 32000 * 8000 = Rs. 256000000


Cost of production of product B = 3/5 * 256000000 = Rs. 153600000


Profit percent earned on product B by company C3 = 12/100 * 153600000 = Rs. 184.32 lakh


  1. 4


Cost of production of product A by company C4 = 108/360 * 160000 * 8000 * 1/3 = Rs. 1280 lakh


Cost of production of product A by company C5 = 90/360 * 160000 * 8000 * 2/5 = Rs. 1280 lakh


  1. 1


Total profit = [ 36/360 * 4/5 * 30/100 + 54/360 * 2/5 * 25/100] * 160000 * 8000

= (0.024 + 0.015) * 160000 * 8000 = Rs. 4.992 crore


  1. 2


Required ratio = 90/360 * 3/5 : 36/360 * 4/5 = 15 : 8


  1. 1


Required percentage = (72 * 3/5) / (90 * 2/5) * 100 = 120%


  1. 3


Let the cost of a T.V. be Rs. x, the cost of a music system

be Rs. y, the cost of a microwave be Rs. p and the cost of a fridge be Rs. q.


From statement I;

0.35x + 0.25 y > 0.45 p + 0.65 q


x + 5/7 y > 9p/7 + 13q/7


The sum of the cost of TV and music system must be more than the sum of a microwave and fridge.


Hence, statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.


From statement II,


0.25x + 0.35y < 0.15p + 0.20q


X + 7y/5 < 3p/5 + 4q/5


From this statement we conclude that the cost of a microwave and fridge is more than the cost of a t.v. and a fridge.


Hence, statement II alone is sufficient to answer the



  1. 4

Since, sales do not indicate anything about the profit, we cannot get answer from I alone.


Now, from statement II;


Let the profit in 2013 and 2014 be Rs. x and Rs. y respectively.


y = 1.35 {(x+y)/2}


2y = 1.35x + 1.35 y

y = 27/13x


No, the profit in 2013 is not more than the profit in 2014.


  1. 5


From statement I, down payment is not known, so we cannot find the price of truck.


From statement II and I together,


Let the down payment be Rs. d then,

x = d + 31784 × 50 (where x is the total cost of truck)


x = 37/100 x + 1589200

x = 158920000/63 = 2522540
