Answer & Explanation
  1. 3


Req Ans = 42 * 57/100 = 23.94 lakh


  1. 4


Req Ans = 35 * (100 – 42)/100 + 63 * (100 – 36)/100

35 * 58/100 + 63 * 64/100

= 20.3 + 40.32 = 60.62 lakh


  1. 4


Req ans = 48 * (51 – 49)/100 = 48 * 2/100 = 96000


  1. 2


E = 78 * 44/100 = 34.32 lakh

Dtotal = 48 lakh

Req Ans = 34.32/48 * 100 = 71.5%


  1. 4

Flit = 81 * 34/100 = 27.54 lakh


Alit = 42 * 43/100 = 18.06 lakh


Req % = 27.54/18.06 * 100 = 152.5%


  1. 2


Let the pipe P2 is closed after ‘x’ mins.


x (1/24 + 1/30) + (20 – x) * 1/24 = 1


3x/40 + 5/6 – x/24 = 1

x = 5 mins


  1. 3


Let Ravi takes ‘x’ days to finish the work, so Mohan will take (x – 8) days to finish the work.


1/x + 1/x-8 = 2/15

(2x-8)/(x^2 – 8x) = 2/15

(x – 4) ×15 = x^2 – 8x

x^2 – 23 x + 60 = 0

x^2 – 20x – 3 x + 60 = 0

x ( x – 20) – 3 ( x – 20) = 0 \ x = 20, 3


We discard x = 3 as it is less than 8.

x = 20 days


  1. 4


Let cost be ‘x’

SP = 17X/20


Now, CP = 4X/5


SP = 17x/20 + 147.2 = (17x + 2944)/20


{(17x + 2944)/20 – 4x/5} * 5/4x * 100 = 35

(17x + 2944 – 16x)/20 * 125/x = 35

(x + 2944)/4 * 25/x = 35

25x + 73600 = 140x

x = 640


  1. 4


Let the amount be ‘x’.


(x * 12 * 7)/100 * (x * 12 * 4.5)/100 = 585

x = 1950


  1. 4


  1. I for third year is 3512320 – 3136000 = 376320


Which is S. I for Rs. 3136000 in one year.


r = (376320 * 100)/ (3136000 * 1) = 12% pa
