ANSWERS

1.B)

Let the first number =X

Second number =Y

According to question,

3/4 X= 3/5 Y

∴Y= 5/4 X

Given,

Y-X= 105

5/4 X- X=105

X= 420

∴50 % of X = 420 * (50/100)=210

2.B)

832 *100 = 3200 *2*X

X= 13 %

As per question

SI *100= 4400 * (13 + 3) * 3

SI= 2112

3.A)

Let A’s present age =X years

And B’s present age = (X+8) years

As per question

(X-2)/(X+8+8) = 1/2

X= 20 years

∴B’s present age = X+8= 28 years

4.D)

Tank filled by A in 1 hours = 120/24=5 litres

Tank filled by (A+B) in 1 hours = 35/3 litres

Tank filled by B in 1 hours = 35/3-5 = 20/3 litres

∴Time taken by B to fill the tank completely = 120 /(20/3) = 18 hours

5.D)let A’s initial investment =Rs X

B’s initial investment = Rs (X + 500)

B’s profit = 5200-1600= 3600

X / (X+500)= (1600/3600) (ratio of investment of = ratio of profit)

X= 400

6.C)3 km/hr

7.D) TRICKS – Option choice

Basic

Let Shiv’s monthly salary = Rs X

Amount kept in PPF & In LIC = X * 40/100 * =2/5X

Amount kept in LIC = 2/5 X * 3/5= 6/25 X

Amount kept in PPF = 2/5 X * 2/5 = 4/25 X

As per question ,

6/25 X -4/25 X = 1600

X = Rs 20000
