Answer & Explanation
  1. 2


Cost of first item = (667 * 100)/116 = 575


Proit = 667 – 575 = 2


Let the cost of second item is ‘x’


x/10 = 92

x = 920


  1. 5


Let the quantity of milk and water are 4x and 3x respectively


4x/(3x + 5) = 9/8

32x = 27x + 45

x = 45/5 = 9


Quantity of water = 3x = 27 litres.

First the six men can sit on round table in (6 – 1)! =



Now for no two women adjacent, there are six vacant

seat between each pair of men.

So number of ways 6 women can sit on these six vacant

seat is 6P6 = 6! ways

So total number of arrangements

= 5! ×6! = 120×720 = 86400


  1. 5


n(S) = 6×6 = 36

n (E) = 4 —> {(3,6)(4,5)(5,4)(6,3)}

P(E) = 4/36 = 1/9
