ANSWERS

ANSWERS

1. (2)

After taking LCM of 4 , 6 , 11 = 132

The students left in each case = 3

Required number of students = 132 + 3 = 135

2. (5)

3. (4)

4. (1)

Initial population = 15,00000;

After first year increment of 10 %, population = 1500000 + 10/100 × 1500000 = 1650000

After second year decrement of 20%, population = 1650000 - 20/100 × 1650000 = 1320000

After increment of 30 % in third year = 1320000 + 30/100 × 1320000 = 1716000

5. (4)

6. (4)

Daily wages are in the ratio 3 : 4 : 5 , working days of A,B,C = 8,9 and 12 so the wages they get will be in ratio 24 : 45 : 48,

Share of C = 48/(24+45+48) × 1950 = Rs 800

7. (2) use chain rule ; if 100 men will do one job in 100 days individually , so one man will do one job in 100 days .

8. (4)

C.P. of one mango = 12/15 = 80 paise ; S.P. of one mango = 15/12=Rs 1.25 ;

Gain = 45 paise , gain = 45/80 × 100 = 56.25 %

9. (1) average speed = (2x×y )/((x+y))=(2 × 50 × 60)/(50 + 60) = 600/11 = 54 6/11 km/hr

10. (2)

value of (90% - 83%)x = 175, 7% of x = 175, 100 % = 2500

99 % of 2500 = 2475
