1. (4)
According to formula:
Number of arrangements = (5-1)!/2 = 12

2. (2)
26/52 + 2/52 = 28/52 = 7/13

3. 2;
Speed downstream = 20/4 = 5 kmph
Speed upstream = 16/4 = 4 kmph
Speed of current = 1/2 * (5-4)= 0.5 kmph

4. 4
SP = 20, gain = 25%
CP = 100/125 * 20 = Rs 16
Now, CP = 16, gain = 40%
SP =  140/100 * 16 = 22.40
Increase = 22.4 – 20 = 2.4

5. 1
Annual intetest = Rs 365 × 2 = Rs 730
Rate = 8%
Sum = (100 * 730)/8 = Rs 9125

6. 1
(X + Y)’s 6 days’ work = 6 * (1/20 + 1/10) = 9/10
Remaining work = 1 - 9/10 = 1/10
1/10 work is done 2y Y in 10 * 1/10 = 1 day

7. 4
Let the CP is Rs x.
Then, x * 110/100  = 990
x = 900
Now CP is Rs 900 and SP is 880.
% loss =  20/900 * 100 = 20/9%

8. 3
Let the number of student is x out of that 40% have failed.
40/100 * x = 320
x = 320 * 100/40 = 800

9. 4
CP = Rs 840 and SP = Rs 920
Gain = 920 – 840 = Rs 80
gain percentage = 80/840 * 100 = 9.52%

10. 2;
Amar’s salary is less than of Raj 2y
(R/100 + R * 100)% = (30/(100 + 30) * 100)%
(30/130 *100 )% = 300/13% = 23% APPROX
