1) 200 km              2) 210 km              3) 220 km              4) 240 km              5) None of these

Answer & Explanation

 1. 3
2. 3
3. 2
4. 3
5. 5
6. 3

Share of profit = Amount invested × time
A = (14000 × 4) + (16000 × 20) = 376000
B = (12000 × 2) + (10000 × 18) = 204000
C = (2000 × 18) = 360000
Ratio of Share = 376 : 204 : 360

C’s share = 94000/940 * 360 = 36000

7. 2

15/b = tan 60
15/b = v3
b = 15/v3

P/b = tan 30
P = 5

So, height of pole = 15 – 5 =10 m

8. 3

K * H = 240
K = 240/H

Also, 2k = H + 4
2 (240/H) = H + 4
H = 20

K = 240/20 = 12

9. 4

10. 4
Let the distance travelled at 40 kmh-1 = x km
? distance travelled at 30 kmh-1 = 300 – x

300/8 = 300/(x/40) + (300-x)/30
x = 240
